id Software Unveils Doom at Quakecon 2014
iD Software announced a new Doom title at Quakecon earlier today, which will be a reboot for the series, rather than just a sequel.
Doom was shown at QuakeCon 2014 today with a live, combat-focused, single-player demo.
Executive producer Marty Stratton introduced the demo, explaining that the reason the new shooter is called Doom rather than Doom 4 is because “it’s an origin game, reimagining everything about the originals”. In other words, a reboot. The story kicks off outside a research facility on the surface of Mars, but the demo also included a cave system.
The demo focused on combat, as that’s what the team has been working on the most up till now. Gunplay is designed to capture the spirit of the original, with fast-paced run-and-gun at its heart, and some “new combat mechanics and features to evolve the FPS experience”.  Doom is being built on idTech 6 – the next iteration of the engine after Rage’s idTech 5 – and will run at 1080p at 60 FPS on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
