Ahead of the gameplay reveal of Bethesda’s new reboot for the franchise titled ‘DOOM‘ is DOOM 4, a game developed by id Software in secret that was eventually cancelled. The cancelled project never saw the light of day, until now. The trailers cinematic snippets were created by Blur Studios.
Lead Writer and Art Director for the studio, Mark Bristol, released his 2014 Directors Reel on YouTube on private settings but that stopped no one. Not meant to be public just yet, Bristol has crafted the reel to showcase all his work over the past years and within it, are snippets of DOOM 4 footage. Be careful the audio may blow an eardrum.

The cinematics were on par with some of middle generational games in the Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 era. The gameplay however, was really early and wouldn’t impress anyone sporting an early PlayStation 2 esque graphics. All the in-game assets need polish to be a game up to industry standards. People expect but for now you can bask in what could’ve been until Bethesda brings the new reboot to the biggest day of the year for gamers, otherwise known as the second Christmas, E3.
Bethesda has released a brief teaser (that could’ve just been a screenshot) online to wet the appetite of gamers ahead of their first ever E3 showcase. So far fan reception on the tile has been positive and I’m eager to see what they’ll do with the IP. There’s not much to go on but in the hands of them it should be a promising title that should make a great deal of noise at E3.
Tune into their showcase on June 14 at 7 p.m. Pacific Time to see more on DOOM‘s future as well as all the titles up the publishers sleeve.
