Details DOOM Eternal: how the authors are going to support the shooter and why it will not be a SnapMap map editor


The developers have already planned several plot DLC.

At the QuakeCon 2018 festival that was launched on August 10, Bethesda showed the gameplay of the upcoming DOOM Eternal and shared the details of the project. Game director Marty Stratton (Marty Stratton) said that this time the developers will pay more attention to the plot of the DLC – many fans noted that in 2016 DOOM did not have enough supplements for the campaign.

The authors are already working on future extensions and a plan to support the shooter after the release. Stratton noted that future additions will be created taking into account the new “Invasions” mode, so it is quite possible that the single-player DLC will in some way involve multi-user elements.

We really like that gamers rerun our game several times. People end the campaign twenty times or try to succeed in speedran. We want to give them even more reasons to come back through the regime of “invasions” or additions.

Due to the fact that the authors focused on the single player component, they had to abandon the SnapMap map editor from the first part. The mode allowed users to build their own levels, however, according to many players, it was not developed deeply enough.

Now we do not plan to return SnapMap to DOOM Eternal. We concentrated forces on those elements that players want to see in the shooter after the release.

Also in the course of communication with journalists, Stratton noted that this time the internal team is engaged in the DOOM Eternal multiplayer, not the outsourced studio, as is the case with the 2016 game. Special attention is paid to the developers of the regime “Invasions”. It will allow players to join each other’s campaigns as monsters.

DOOM Eternal is being developed for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. The exact release date of the game yet, but it is assumed that the shooter will be released in 2019.
