Especially in the last four years, Doom has become one of the best comebacks in the history of video games. After a 12-year hiatus, id Software, alongside Bethesda Softworks, brought Doom back to its former glory in a phenomenal way. However, before Doom (2016) appeared, it seems that there was a fourth mainline installment payment for the work that was finally abandoned in support of the 2016 title.
Doom 3 was the last game in the series released before Doom came back in 2016. Released in 2004, Doom had a horror element in addition to the previously known action-based gameplay. After that, developers will take 12 years for a new game to be released, but according to the new gameplay segment and screenshots, not only was the new game previously released, but it’s also significantly different from the final version of Doom. It would have looked different (2016).
Test footage, animations and screenshots were shown in a small video posted by Crispies on YouTube. In many respects, what is shown in the video is very rough compared to the final product, but shares many similarities with the new game. The enemy and weapon designs are similar to those used in real games. In fact, some environmental designs, such as apocalyptic urban areas, are very similar to those later in Doom Eternal.
If things were done differently, you would wonder what the game would have been like. The first enemy shown in the video, the enemy wearing a sweatshirt, doesn’t look like the enemy in the final version. It’s strange to think that this could have been a fourth installment rather than a reboot. Again, there are already a lot of things in the Doom franchise that don’t make any sense.
Many are very pleased that Doom is in its later years, and this video contains many components leading up to the final version of the game, but still see what happens. It was interesting to see. I could have done it another way. Over the years, Doom has taken on various forms of dissonance, and one talented user has turned Doom into an 80’s-style pixel shooter, but the game is trying to do something a little different. It is clear that he was there.
Doom 3 wasn’t as popular as other Doom titles, but I tried it differently. The new game has modernized the franchise, but its structure is somewhat static in some respects. Again, the new DLC campaign can do a lot to change this. With the success of The Ancient Gods, perhaps another DLC campaign is imminent.
