Doom Eternal Environments May Take Us Places Other Than Hell, Earth, Phobos

We got to see a number of different Doom Eternal environments last week at QuakeCon, but all of the different concept images and other small clips have also brought up the prospect of us visiting more Doom Eternal environments than just Hell, Earth, and the Martian moon of Phobos, or possibly others.

In the rebooted Doom universe, Hell has been spreading out across the universe for eons, conquering other worlds and utterly destroying them with no one being able to stand against them until the coming of the Doom Slayer.

Now, even with Earth being invaded by demons we may be seeing a large number of other areas. One particularly interesting area was a world that didn’t look like Earth or Hell, a city bathed in ominous green light. Whether this is the Doom Slayer’s homeworld of Argent D’Nur or some other story-relevant location. It might even be Heaven, though we don’t know that for sure.

Along with a demon-infested Earth, the Doom Slayer will also be traveling to the Martian moon of Phobos, where the gigantic BFG 10,000 is housed. The fact that Doom Eternal environments are already going beyond just two different areas is making it look much more appealing than the first Doom, even disregarding things like the new Praetor Suit, new weapons, new glory kills, and more.

id Software has also promised that there would be a deeper story to this new Doom, which is saying something considering that the single player mode of the first Doom game got critical acclaim. Whatever id’s doing, it’ll have to really blow our socks off.

However, considering that id’s performance with Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus also got critical acclaim, as long as they do the same sort of thing with Doom Eternal. There’s no definite release date yet for the game, but it will be coming out on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
