Here's an interview with Billy Khan, lead engine programmer of id Software. He talks about Doom Eternal, idTech7, next gen platforms and more.

The interview was done by Dutch website Tweakers, so there are some Dutch spoken bits in there, but you won't be missing anything if you can't understand it.

I finished it a short time ago; For me, the spirit of Doom Eternal is totally true to the series. Movement and weapon improvement are really interesting bringing new level design possibilities :up:

Faithful to Doom from the very beginning, I was however disappointed with this Eternal version for two reasons :

- The low artistic quality. It is not the millions of polygons that are enough to make the artistic quality. It is enough to think of Van Gogh to be convinced of it. Still on the artistic level, the decorations are on the whole too monotonous with a basic material which is very often stone. on this point, I find Doom 2016 of a much higher level.

- The repetitive and boring side of waves of monsters sometimes seeming endless with a bad mix of difficulty. In the old Doom enemies could appear in a more ingenious way.

There you go, so I'm going to go back to Doom 2016 :sly:

You know what this game really needed? More marauders for that extra bit of wait-for-it gameplay.

Luckily they fixed that in the expansion I see : hype:

Ancient Gods will be a standalone release, meaning you dont need Eternal to play.

Meanwhile, official OST has been removed from Spotify, assumingly in the wake of the Gordon/id debacle.

Great, that means it's a separate executable where you have to customize all the game settings and key bindings again.

I already have the RTX 2080 ti and love it for the current build that I have now. I am working on getting another build with an AMD 32core Treadripper 9 Extreme. 128gb of ram and a RTX 3080. The best thing about being a seasoned gamer is that we have the money to buy badass rigs. Keeps the senses sharp as well. I still game everyday just like I did 21 years ago.

I got a 2080 Ti from Asus not long after they launched when I RMA'd my 1080 Ti. Might grab a 3080 Ti when it's released.

So they pulled the season pass along with the release so if you didn't get it before you have no option than paying full price.

Dick move id.

Perhaps.
It seems to be back up tho, with different contents and pricepoint.

30 euro for Doom Eternal plus 2 SP expansions.
Weird as the standard edition (sans season pass) is also up for 70 :dork:

It's really weird. When you search for Doom Eternal you get Doom Eternal itself (for €59,99), The Ancient Gods Pt 1 (for €19,99) and the Rip and Tear pack (€4,99).
If you open Doom Eternal and scroll to available purchases, you can buy:

- Standard edition (59,99)
- Deluxe edition (89,99) which includes standard edition, year one pass and deluxe edition content (not sure what that is, but I guess the Rip & Tear Pack)
- Ancient Gods Pt 1 (19,99)
- Year One Pass (29,99) which includes Ancient Gods Pt 1 and Ancient Gods Pt 2

Sneakily, though, if you open the Year One Pass page, it explicitly says the publisher has requested that it won't show up in search results.
So if you haven't got the deluxe edition yet, I suggest people buy the Year One Pass and not the Ancient Gods Pt 1 (I expect Ancient Gods Pt 2 to be 19,99 as well and not 9,99).

To make things even more complicated, the standard edition, deluxe edition and Year One Pass all mention including "BATTLEMODE" (Doom Eternal's multiplayer mode) as well. This is weird because BATTLEMODE is part of the base game. If you buy the Year One Pass, Steam will warn that you already own Doom Eternal (not BATTLEMODE, just "Doom Eternal") which is odd because owning Doom Eternal is a prerequisite to buying the Year One Pass. I think it gives this warning because of the BATTLEMODE bit.

It's amazing how a publisher can fuck something as simple as this up so badly. But whatever.

So the tl;dr is:
If you own the deluxe edition, you already own the DLC's
If you own the standard edition, get the Year One Pass (assuming you also want to play Ancient Gods Pt 2)

ikr.

Re purchase options.
It weird how they managed to make the whole thing so confusing. We've been doing this season pass bullshit for years now, how can you still f that up?
I get that they decoupled the DLC from the base game so that 'everyone can play', but tbh I'm playing it now and it's not for newcomers. You start the game basically with idkfa; I'm halfway through the first map and I've already encountered two archviles, doomhunters, a couple of marauders and I'm now in my second cyberdemon fight.
Newcomers are not going to like this I'm sure.

It's standalone? I see, that explains why it said I already own Doom Eternal. Still a bit odd though, because I assume you can't play the main campaign with only the DLC
