It’s all boom and zoom in Doom’s explosive launch trailer


Doom’s launch trailer is very Doom. I don’t know what I expected, really. Running around and splatting demons in close-quarters, quick-strafing gun combat, jumping through the air while raining down rockets – if these things appeal, Doom is the game for you. Though it seems there might be a downbeat bit at the beginning before you find your, ahem, helmet.

Yep, the Doom launch trailer is full of all the stuff you’re probably expecting, which is a good thing if you’re a Doom fan. Because as we all know – people who love retro games are terrified of change.

If you’re sat in a sweaty mess, festering in your room, eagerly awaiting the May 13 launch of Doom – much like our very own Ben Barrett – at least there isn’t much longer to wait. It does look like a hell of a time… The game, not the festering.
