For so many gamers Doom was their first introduction to gripping FPS action, with all its palpable weapon feedback, terrifying enemies, intricate environments, and gratuitous gore. For others, it opened up the gates to the thrills of player-vs-player deathmatch, or cooperative demon slaying across the wastelands of Hell. But whether or not you've played the original games, this new vision of Doom is undeniably exciting. It's just as savage, speedy, and smart as its predecessors, with all the glorious presentation and polish that only a big-budget game can deliver.
Ever since its explosive debut at E3 2015, we've gotten some extensive hands-on time with Doom at Quakecon and beyond. This is a reboot that goes beyond mere nostalgia - it looks to reinvigorate what you loved from the originals, adding in fresh ideas and ludicrous amounts of mobility. Here's everything you need to know about Doom before it comes to PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 13th.
