Doom Eternal announced at E3 2018

Marty Stratton and Hugo Martin, producer and creative director of Doom at id, showed up at the Bethesda E3 press conference to announce Doom Eternal, "an awesome, awesome new sequel to Doom."

Doom Eternal will have an "even more powerful" Doom Slayer, and "twice as many" demons. It will make its full debut at this year's QuakeCon in Dallas this August.

Also, are those Cacodemons with arms? We're not sure how we feel.

Update: We've been informed by eagle-eyed Doom fan Viper that those are, in fact, Pain Elementals, which first appeared in Doom 2. Good catch, Viper!

Wes has been covering games and hardware for more than 10 years, first at tech sites like The Wirecutter and Tested before joining the PC Gamer team in 2014. Wes plays a little bit of everything, but he'll always jump at the chance to cover emulation and Japanese games. When he's not obsessively optimizing and re-optimizing a tangle of conveyor belts in Satisfactory (it's really becoming a problem), he's probably playing a 20-year-old RPG or some opaque ASCII roguelike. With a focus on writing and editing features, he seeks out personal stories and in-depth histories from the corners of PC gaming and its niche communities. 50% pizza by volume (deep dish, to be specific).
