Vice president of PR and marketing, Pete Hines, was excited and pleasantly surprised by how much Doom singleplayer campaign was praised.

He explained that him and various others at Bethesda were worried that Doom will only get mediocre reviews, and will be branded as same old.

If you are at Bethesda and play the single-player, you might think it’s really fun and different. But you don’t know if you’re drinking your own kool-aid… is it really fun? Or are people going to play it and dislike the fact there’s no voiced protagonist, or the fact there’s no real story, and will they say: ‘id Software hasn’t got out of the 1990s. Same old, same old. 6/10’. You never know which of those two scenarios you’ll end up getting.

He further added that the singleplayer demo for Doom which released after the game’s launch was a really good idea as it helped to bring more players in.

We did the single-player demo after launch. We had showed off the multiplayer, but we hadn’t managed to show as much of the single-player. So giving folks the chance to try it… well it turned out to be a good idea.

Recently, game director, Marty Stratton revealed that multiple DLCs for Doom are planned. He also said that the team is currently working on Doom score attack mode.

Doom is a first person shooter developed by id Software for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
