Info about Doom 4 at Quakecon.
Well, as many Doom/id fans know, Doom 4 was only shown to QuakeCon attendees. They checked for cameras at the door for each person individually, but we have yet to see if maybe someone snuck by with those sunglasses-cameras or mini cameras or something. Luckily, there are many websites/forums that have people who replied to/made articles/threads that go in great detail about the game.

Looks like the main points about the game is:

It uses a new version of id Tech, called id Tech 6 (some call it id Tech 666)

It is going back to it's run and gun roots

Has absolutely brutal fatality moves like Brutal Doom, and the game is very gory

Plasma gun, Double barrel, rocket launcher, pistol, shotgun and chainsaw were shown

Two levels were shown

Game is a reboot, not a sequel

Monsters look more "disgusting" and "threatening", but somewhat resembling of Doom 3 a little

Megatextures are GONE!

1080p 60 FPS on next-gen

A Parkour element is in the game

Movement similar to Quake 3 Arena

Graphics "aren't groundbreaking, but are a lot better than RAGE or W:TNO"

Aww dude that's freaking awesome! I had been looking forward to the 17th so I could get info on the internet about QuakeCon's Doom 4 announcements so this is really cool. However Doom 3 was pretty gory in my opinion during gamplay so I can't tell how it's gonna possibly turn out lol

For the most part, I was impressed with the new Doom. It was worth hauling my ♥♥♥ to the US for Quakecon to see it, and I've been enjoying the rest of the convention too even if my Quake skills are subpar since... well, I play Doom all the time xP However I do have one gripe: It's set on Mars and is a retelling of Doom 1 again. This kind of disappoints me, I will say I don't give a rats ♥♥♥ whether or not it continues the story directly from Doom 3 or not but I did want it to progress in one way: It should have been Hell on Earth. I have been DYING to see a remake of Hell on Earth since the moment Doom 3 was announced, because I want to see a horrid, disgusting, twisted version of Earth ruled by demons and Doom II couldn't do that because of its limitations and I was begging the new one to not be essentially a remake of a remake and just do the Mars stuff again.

HOWEVER, as I said I was still impressed with the reveal. It looks much, much more old school than Doom 3 - it still has a strong horror aesthetic but its clear they are going for balls to the wall action and not just cramped corridors and jumpscares. I like Doom 3, but I am definitely glad they are going the other way in terms of the games pacing and style.

I think Hell on Earth will come next. They said this Doom was to "prove [them]selves again that [they] could make a good Doom game". If they do that successfully, then you can bet your ♥♥♥ there will be a Doom 2 remake too, and even maybe a remake of Final Doom or a fully new sequel!

Cross your fingers, then.

Did they ever release any Doom 4 gameplay? I hope it was great if so, because I'm tempted to play haha

There was a demonstration of gameplay here at Quakecon, but they were pretty thorough in making sure we didn't have any cameras/phones, hell one guy got caught with a button camera - they wanted it exclusive. They did not state when any gameplay would be made public, but I am at Quakecon and it was awesome I can tell you that! There will be a beta for people who pre-ordered Wolfenstein: THe New Order at some point though so can't wait for that, especially after the reveal.

I sure am glad it was good! During the development people really began to doubt it, but I guess it turned out awesome and that's great.

I doubted it too, trully. I had red flags raised over the fact it was just called "DOOM," the fact that it seemed rather soon after it was announced that the project was scrapped and restarted, the fact that it uses a new engine with Carmack pretty much gone from the company, etc.

But while I am still slightly disappointed its going back to mars and that it's just called "Doom" those truly aren't what matters - what matters is gameplay and they have the right mindset. I'll say that I actually rather liked Doom 3 but I understand why many people didn't or at the very least didn't like the direction it took the series in. However, I am glad that they aren't focusing on making it like Doom 3 - they are making it like... well, probably what fans WANTED Doom 3 to be. There is still a clear horror aesthetic and I'm hoping they will get scares, but there are monsters on screen in droves and the environments are big and hot DAMN are they gorgeous. The mining area with all the lava and the weird futuristic carts flying around was breathtaking. Plus the chainsaw works kinda like the blade in Metal Gear Rising, which means slice anywhere - get genuine results. >:D

BTW I have a question for you Coxsource, I noticed you have a Brutal Doom avatar and it's clear you like Doom and I've gotta ask if you'd maybe wanna join me in some Brutal Doom co-op. I've been wanting to get one started but don't know many people that play Brutal Doom and such. I wanna go through using the enhanced co-op wad that extends the original Doom 1/Doom 2 levels just for that occasion :D If you are up to doing that at some point, add me on Steam :)

Hey yeah that would be cool, as you know by now I am a big Doom fan and wouldn't mind playing with you on Brutal. I'll add you and will make sure to keep in touch with you and we can play whenever I get a chance :)

I wonder if it will include missions on Phobos and Deimos. Not a word of them in Doom 3 that i can remember. Didnt one of the moons get sucked into a portal at some point in the original? However they decide to progress it. It will be interesting to experience a movement system like the one in Quake 3. I always wondered how Doom monsters would fair in Quake engine. Brutal Doom is definitely action packed. I have to plug Complex Doom and Hard Doom. Since i have played those mods. The intesity and challenge has trippled for those who dare accept the odds of facing certain and impending.... Doom.

Well, they only showed Mars in the stage demo. No mention of Phobos or Deimos, but I do hope they have them - and yeah, Deimos "vanished from the sky" at the beginning of Doom and it's where most of Episode 2 takes place, with the revelation at the end that the whole time you were in the lost Deimos base it was actually floating over hell. I always thought that was kind of a cool twist back when it came out; even if the real doozy of a twist was the ending to Episode 3. I think it traumatized me a little as a wee girl I was genuinely like "What... why? why would you show this to me game?!? T__T I'm only 6 years old and I like bunnies :< And Earth, I kinda live there :<"

I have played Hard Doom and Brutal. Those are great examples of beautiful wads
