The Gameplay Reveal Details Thread

Recommended Posts

There are a bunch of scattered threads about individual details and things that people have noticed in the gameplay reveal. This is a thread for all those little things that you might want to point out for everyone else. Here's a few things from me.

 

1. When the Doomguy puts his helmet on we get a brief flash of this interesting sigil.

2. Inverted five-pointed stars and hexagons (symbols used to perform magic) + a stream of text written in some strange language. In DOOM4 when you put the helmet on there's a brief glimpse of some different language that gets translated into English but this one seems different. Perhaps whoever upgraded the Doomguys armor is not really a good guy.

3. As seen in DOOM4, certain enemies naturally fight each other, despite being hostile towards the Doomguy. Here we can see the new Possessed Soldiers fighting the cybernetically enhanced civilians.

4. Cars floating around the giant hellish tumor (you can see it better in the video).

5. Let's take a moment to appreciate this cool destroyed bridge with dozens of cars on it.

6. There are those weird floating skull contraptions that spill lava everywhere.

7. Okay, are we just gonna ignore the fact that there are GIANT ROBOTS in DOOM Eternal?

8. Pools of blood now show waves when mortally challenged are playing in them.

Something that may be relevant to the disintegrating corpses- whenever a demon suddenly loses a limb or body part, the bloody stump/gib/wound now appears to flash orange-red but only for a split-second. 

It's the exact same color as the burning ashes whenever a body disappears.

After the player picks up the extra life, there’s an additional area that seems to open up. Perhaps finding secrets can help discover more secrets?

This computer screen reads “SUBMIT TO THEM.” In addition to the friendly AI voice that we hear, perhaps this situation on Earth will be similar to They Live?

 

Anything that’s not pictured:

-When the Crucible is pulled out against the Arch-Vile, there can be a voice heard whispering something like “help us slay.”

 

Will edit this post when I discover more things hidden in the gameplay.

It is A Crucible, and not the one from the previous DOOM.

 

Otherwise, great analysis.

Just want to broth to ur attention that the architecture from Samuels office script building in the background is very similar as the architecture in the Sentinel prime.

That spiky thing.

 

Wich i belive the script is abaut  pre hell Argent d nur...or that war with mortaly challenged already happened in  this grandiose city.

If u look in the buildings they are heavy damaged with big hols in the walls, also bridges are broken...sam as in Argent breach.This city is abandoned imo.

Also some serious...Tesla feel to it.

If You look in the background of that Sentinel Prime picture, you'll see what I'm 99% sure is Mars.

If that's the case, then I have even less of an idea what's going on, unless there just so happened to be an Argent D'Nur settlement on Deimos for some reason.

Classic health potions!

Caco blood is noticeably blue again!

This "UHGO" store in the mall is a cute anagram of "HUGO"...

...and transforms into "UH O" a bit later.

I'm Willing to bet this has something to do with the Arch-Vile's mechanics. Maybe he'll have the ability to "heal" those glowing wounds?

Otherwise, it just seems weird to have glowing wounds for no reason.

If my eyes don't deceive me, you can briefly see up top for a good twenty seconds allied human commando's fighting against the demons

I suspect that on the sky of Kadingir Sanctum, the same planet might be up there on the sky:

It could suggest that it has been absorbed by Hell.

@Man of Doom

Holy shit, I never would've heard that on my own, especially in the live reveal version where everyone is screaming over it.

Here's my attempt at isolating it a little:

This kind of convinces me the Doomslayer has some kind of demonic past. He seems to be pretty familiar with all those occult "superpowers", even in Doom 2016. On the otherside it's still possibles this voice belongs to a Knight Sentinel or victim of previous Hell expansion.

white,silver,golden dark Seraphime place from the concept art locations.Those signs, circles and color are generated in same shape...

In that same area with the pillar of teeth, there appears to be hanging corpses covered in a green viscous liquid attached to those "bone bars" that the player swings on.

God, I love the abundance of fleshy setpieces. That was really lacking from 2016 imo.

 

(That one multiplayer map where literally every surface is bone and meat was great though.)

I was asking because when I tried to click on that video it says "This video has been removed for violating YouTube's Terms of Service". Thanks for re-uploading it anyway!

The shotgun guys now have backpacks to help them jump:

Probably only so they can move up ledges.  Otherwise it would look sillier than the Mancubus hops.
