    It could be a cool feature but I'm not too into this current trend of integrate multiplayer and "social gaming" to everything.
    It's fine they try new things, and that's definitely new, but I'd prefer single player experiences to be just that, single player.

    Difference in visuals is huge. There's 10X more geometry. Almost all lights are dynamic now, which was in Wolfenstein II. The shaders look much more realistic. The textures are much better up close. id Tech 7 should really run amazing on Ryzen.

    So anyone notice that the gameplay footage shows Eternal is breaking away from the go here, get locked down in an area wait for bad guys to spawn, kill all bad guys, have area unlock go to next area rinse and repeat? That's not a criticism of the gameplay of the last game, I loved the last game but I know a few folk did highlight this as an issue and it seems that they may well have done away with this for Eternal.

    Yeah, the gameplay footage did not confine the player to an area until all enemies were killed.
    Multiple times the player moved into a new section of the level with enemies still alive.

    Ryzen, and any other sufficiently multithreaded CPU. IdTech engines + Vulkan = extreme parallelism :D

    Heck, Wolfenstein 2 has practically perfect scaling on my 6900K. Can't wait to see how Doom Eternal performs on my rig!

    Bit off topic, but... Man I'd love to see a new Heretic and Hexen game eventually...

    Aahh, we can only hope. Raven deserves better than just making DLCs for CoD...

    Activision are knobs for ruining Raven, they got a ton of creative talent. Would like to see them return to their roots of heretic and hexen.

    Thinking about it, Activision half way let them off the leash as Raven create the zombie mode. Still waste of a good studio, they should have merged with ID software.

    I'll also say Activision are also on the right track by publishing From Software new game...I'm sure CoD fans will cover the cost for that rather than a change of heart :D

    On Topic - Doom Eternal looks amazing, lots of diversity in the environment, gameplay looks turned up to 11, love the classic monsters, music sounds even more crazy.
    It's going to be awesome though I have a feeling we won't be seeing it till early 2020.

    Indeed Raven were quite the darlings on the PC platform at one point weren't they. Heretic. Hexen. Take no Prisoners. Jedi Outcast. Soldier of Fortune. Elite Force. Wolfenstein. Quake. They could honestly do no wrong. I'd give anything for a new Heretic or SoF game from them.

    Now thanks to that picture I just heard him with his calm voice say "Just like so..." in my head.

    I hope they won't overdo the platforming. It's nice to see the lack of gore nests or other "arena spawn" battles. I much prefer the enemies to be already in.

    it reminds me the Xen level in Half-Life for some reason.

    Looking forward to Bethesda's E3 conference.

    There's a rumor that they have 6 new games to announce.
    If true, I would love a PREY 2 and Evil Within 3. A long shot, but... I have my hopes dammit.
