We’ve known the first gameplay reveal for Doom Eternal would drop during next month’s QuakeCon, but here’s a friendly reminder that the even is rapidly approaching.
Doom Eternal was revealed for the first time on Bethesda’s E3 2018 stage, where a small teaser trailer showed an Earth overrun by Hell itself. No gameplay accompanied the teaser, and fans were told they’d have to wait until QuakeCon 2018 to see it. The convention will run from August 9th to August 12th, and the official Doom Twitter account has confirmed that the livestream of Eternal‘s first gameplay will go down on August 10th.
1 month countdown begins…

We are still waiting on the exact time at which the stream will run, as well as any hints of what fans might see. We currently know very little about the sequel, apart from its setting on Earth, which makes it hard to predict what we’re in store for. To be fair, the teaser also gave up glimpses of some of the new enemies we’ll be facing, so we at least have an idea of the monsters we’ll be blowing to bits.
The mystery surrounding Doom Eternal extends to its release window. So far, Bethesda hasn’t even narrowed down the launch to a year. While it’s likely we won’t get to rip and tear again until 2019 (or later), given Bethesda’s habit quick turnarounds between reveal and release, we can’t completely rule out a launch before the end of 2018.
