Don’t describe Doom 4, it will prove it again


At least that’s what the developers say.

If there’s a game we’ve been waiting to announce at all the major video player events of the past year, it’s a Doom 4. By comparison, it has been ten years since the third part and although almost everyone has treated the development of the fourth episode as an open secret, we had to wait until this year’s E3 for official confirmation. Of course, we still only got a short teaser video with zero information, but at least Bethesda nodded at its existence. According to the news, the actual unveiling will take place in style on QuakeCon, leaving the guesswork as to why the developers want to dazzle us. Because this is really needed. No one wants another Duke Nukem Forever or Aliens: Colonial Marines fiasco, when after waiting too long, fans were stabbed in the eye with just one TESCO economical creation. This was also seen by the publisher, whose views were interpreted by Pete Hines, head of marketing, citing Wolfenstein: The New Order as an example. As previous attempts were consistently of medium quality, there was a lot of pressure on Machine Games staff, who, however, grew up to the task and – if only partially – restored the series ’reputation. The same is expected for Doom 4.
“We have to prove it’s going to be fun, which is worth paying attention to. That’s going to be our starting point, we can’t say that since it’s Doom, you can buy it. But it just drives us to work even harder.”
So there are promises, though great care is taken not to reveal anything even by accident before the great revelation. Unfortunately, there’s also some bad news about this particular big revelation: only visitors to QuakeCon will be able to see it.
