At its E3 press conference, Bethesda announced details of the upcoming Doom Eternal and its release date: November 22, 2019.
Doom Eternal will be released on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
Doom Eternal’s Creative Director Hugo Martin and Executive Producer Marty Stratton announced the game’s release date, story trailer, and its new multiplayer mode called Battlemode.
By the looks of the gameplay, Battlemode seems to be an asymmetrical multiplayer mode that has two player-controlled demons fighting the Doom Slayer. The demons will possess an array of different playstyles as well as abilities such as summoning allies to assist them in killing the Doom Slayer, who will be able to use some crazy powerful guns, explosives, and blades.
Two separate special editions were announced, with a Collector’s edition that will include a wearable replica of the Doom Slayer’s helmet.
The pre-order bonuses will include the Rip and Tear Pack (pictured above) which comes with the Doot Revenant Skin, the Throwback Shotgun Weapon Skin, and a Bonus Campaign Master Level. Gamers purchasing the game at Best Buy with a My Best Buy membership can receive a $10 credit for pre-ordering.
The cheapest price for the standard edition will start at $49.94 at Amazon and Walmart, while it’s $60 at Best Buy, GameStop, Newegg, Target, and the official Bethesda store.
Pre-orders for the Doom Eternal Deluxe edition will include the Demon Slayer skin, the Classic Weapons Sound Pack, and the Doom Eternal Year One Pass, which comes with two single-player campaign expansions which will last for the first year after the game’s release.
The Deluxe edition is $90 on Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop.
The highest-level pre-order is the Doom Eternal Collector’s edition and is already sold out in lots of places. With everything included in the standard and Deluxe edition, the Collector’s edition will include an exclusive steelbook case, a wearable replica Doom Slayer helmet, a playable cassette tape (and download codes for lossless digital copies of the Doom Eternal soundtracks and Mick Gordon’s 2016 Doom), a Doom lore book with custom artwork from id Software, and a “The Gift of Argent Power” 11″ x 17″ lithograph.
The Collector’s edition is $200 on Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, and Walmart, but most, if not all, have already sold out.
A 7-inch Doom Slayer action figure will also be released on September 27 and can be ordered for $20 at Amazon and $23 at GameStop.
More details on Doom Eternal are to be revealed at Quakecon.
