New Doom Eternal enemy the Doom Hunter revealed at QuakeCon

Audio player loading…

This is apparently The Year of Doom (make your own topical joke here), and that means QuakeCon 2019 is heavily Doom-flavored. We've already learned all about Doom Eternal's multiplayer battlemode (opens in new tab), which which pits one player as the Slayer against two player-controlled demons.

Speaking of demons, here's a new one, which debuted via the above video at QuakeCon. The Doom Hunter is a hybrid of fiend and machine created specifically to hunt the Doom Slayer. So, you know, good luck with that. With its bull horns, missile launcher, glowing blade arm, skullface gun, and apparently a jet-powered butthole, the Doom Hunter is a pretty fearsome monster. But obviously it's going to get ripped to bits in a lovingly detailed takedown animation.

Doom Eternal (opens in new tab) will be out on November 22.

Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
