DEATH TO DEMONS!

Doom. Just the name alone tells you everything you need to know about the game. Most older gamers have very fond memories of this gory shooter and the new game in the series seems like it’s hitting all the right notes.

Interestingly, this new game seems to place heavy emphasis on community involvement. id software have introduced a new mode, called Snapmap. This will allow users to build their own maps, drop in new objects and even tweak the game’s logic to make entirely new modes. It’s a great way to get the attention of Doom’s very active and talented modding  community.

This new mode was designed to be easy to use without sacrificing depth and is already being compared a lot to Halo’s forge mode. If that was the inspiration behind this mode, it was hardly a bad idea, as forge mode was rather popular among Halo fans.

Effort is being made to bring the community together regardless of the platform they’re playing on and, while it was neither confirmed nor denied, id seem to be implying that all maps constructed in this mode will be part of a single pool, as opposed to one for each platform.

Snapmap will be powered by Bethesda’s new online platform, Bethesda.net, which will be at the heart of all Bethesda games going forward. Exactly how is not yet clear, but what is clear is that the platform will be used for articles, forums and unique features.

Doom will come out for PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4 in the spring of 2016.
