Doom PS4 gets info burst from QuakeCon, will run at 1080p/60fps

on 18 July 2014

Bethesda has blown the cobwebs off the long-delayed reboot of idSoftware’s Doom franchise, confirming the game will be released for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.

The horror-themed FPS was detailed at QuakeCon this week, where it was revealed the title will take the form of an origins project that reimagines everything about the venerable, genre-defining original.

As reported by PC Gamer, Doom will take place in a monster-infested space station on Mars, and promises to focus on ‘atmospheric horror.’

"A new twist on finding the yellow keycard: year off a corpse's arm and use it to open a handprint scanner," the publication Tweeted. "A demon just ripped the player's arms off and beat him to death with them. The room is breaking out into a standing ovation."

Elsewhere, the game will incorporate the usual host of over-the-top weaponry, including the fan-favorite chainsaw, as well as brutal melee combat that sees players booting enemies to death.

Doom will run at 1080p/60fps and is being powered by idTech 6, a next-generation version of the Wolfenstein: The New Order and RAGE engine.

The game has yet to attract a release date.
