A new batch of screenshots from id Software’s upcoming DOOM reboot promises to spawn some memories for longtime fans. A whole host of familiar characters from the original PC classic have arrived.
My experience with DOOM doesn’t go past the first game, but even I can recognize the Cacodemons. I’ll never forget those floating red balls of slime for as long as I live, nor will I forget the impression they left on my poor eight year old mind.
Maybe more recognizable to DOOM 3 fans are the sightless Hell Knights. I don’t have much experience with that entry in the series, but there once was a time when gamers couldn’t look at a used Xbox games rack without that horror staring right back at them.
DOOM will highlight this month’s issue of Game Informer, and we will no doubt learn more of what this exciting reboot has to offer. For now, all I can daydream about is blasting Cacodemons in the face with a rocket launcher. IDDQD, baby!
DOOM will launch in 2016 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
