If the title didn’t give it away, the description will. There are heavy amounts of SPOILERS throughout the upcoming videos that were released by GamersPrey HD. The three videos by the source last over 15 minutes, and show DOOM‘s campaign mode, weapons, upgrades and more. DOOM will be available for PS4, PC and Xbox One on May 13th.
Again, if you don’t want anything revealed like story elements, how to access certain locations or what specific items do, it’s best to turn back before entering the jaws of hell. However, if you don’t care and want to see the campaign and all of its innards, you’re more than welcome to watch.

I won’t dive into everything, but some of the basics since there is more to the game than Doom 3. With that said, I know a lot of fans will be comparing this DOOM to the first and second iterations, as well as Brutal Doom. From what was shown, I still don’t know how to feel about it since I haven’t played the actual campaign mode.
In addition, the few rounds that I was able to get my hands on with the Open Beta for the Multiplayer had a lot of server issues to provide a proper response to the overall mechanics of the game. The best way I could sum it up was that it felt somewhat strange to play. It wasn’t boring, but it wasn’t the best PvP experience I’ve had.
Looking over to the campaign’s upgrade system, it works by spending points into certain weapons, which also features Rune stones. These will obviously boost your performance in battle and allow for an even greater chance to survive against some of the most foul demons with attachments and extra firepower.

There’s also secrets like in the old DOOM games hidden around the maps that hold special items and super gear to, again, gain more power over your enemies. Something worth noting, I don’t know how useful backtracking and secret finding will be on harder difficulty settings, since Glory Kills are noted to help out in those areas, I guess we’ll have to wait and see how that plays out.
Before jumping into the final video, I do have to say that I like how the weapons handle from both the videos and the experience from the PvP. They do feel like they work, but I do think that some weapons can receive a little buff to be on par with the Super Shotgun, but that’s nothing the full release can’t fix from the Open Beta.
Aside from that, I think the videos can provide a better explanation regarding if DOOM will be something worth playing or skipping, courtesy of GamersPrey HD.
