Doom launch trailer actually released this time

Audio player loading…

The official Doom (opens in new tab) launch trailer is here, and it looks familiar. Days ago, an old, incomplete but official-looking trailer (opens in new tab) leaked and was swiftly nuked by the legal types at Bethesda. Now it's painfully apparent why.

Here we have hints at a classic archvillain, new demons on the loose and some iconic posturing. We're underwhelemed (opens in new tab) by what we've seen of Doom's multiplayer—as is the Steam community—and yet something about the rampant carnage of the singleplayer trailer is mightily attractive.
