However, the 20ish minutes of gameplay shown off today certainly looked impressive.

Here's a quick rundown of the details. The overwhelming success of that effort has only amplified anticipation for the sequel, Doom Eternal.

At QuakeCon 2018, id Software revealed some additional tech details about the engine that will be powering DOOM Eternal, the id Tech 7. Here's a breakdown of how that time converts elsewhere.

It is important to be professional, to have commitment, with the team, with the club, with yourself, full commitment until the end.

Doom Eternal looks to be much more open and varied than its somewhat one-note predecessor. You can even team up with other players to form a Doom Slayer hunting party. Instead, you'll be able to travel to multiple worlds (including never-before-seen ones) on your demon-slaying adventure. Fortunately Doom Eternal gives players a host of new abilities, weapons, and combos they can use to literally chain kills together. The Doom Slayer himself has also gotten a makeover for his armor. Sign me up. New weapons include a wrist-mounted retractable blade used for the bloody "glory kills" that the game challenges you to complete and a shoulder-mounted flamethrower that's flawless for char-broiling large groups of baddies at the same time.

And speaking of environments, well, Doom Eternal is Hell on Earth in the most literal sense. How do you feel about the new additions to the game? Destroy every demon in your path with an upgraded array of guns and mods, including the Super Shotgun's new Meat Hook attachment to pull yourself point blank with the faces of hell. This includes the Pain Elemental, Archvile and Arachnotron from previous Doom titles, while new enemies include the Doom Hunter and corrupted Marauders. Yep, Id isn't being shy about its Dark Souls inspiration here, literally sharing the same term for letting other players come charging into your world with the lone goal of killing you to death.

According to the game's official Twitter account, it'll be released on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch.
