I must not know enough about Doom because I don't feel at all spoiled by any of these. Cool art, though. Can't wait to rip and tear.

I have zero clue what i'm looking at. I just wanna be the shooty man who fires the big guns. Neat art though.

So wait, I thought the robot was evil at the end of the last game?
At the end of last game he was basically unchanged from the beginning. He starts as a pragmatist who believed he can use Hell's energy to solve humanity's crises and is ruthless about the use and discarding of the Doom Marine. He ends the game with renewed confidence (or recklessness) that he can still do exactly that. This isn't exactly evil, it's just ... he's a very ends-justify-the-means guy with delusions of grandeur.

Yeah samual hayden wasn't specifically "bad" although he was doing some stupid fucked up shit.

ex: he's the reason you're there to stop the olivia pierced prompted invasion to begin with.

The spoiler isn't that bad if you consider
that this is doom 2

Good to see Hugo Martin remembered how to draw mecha from his work on Pacific Rim. Dude if there's a giant mecha -> even bigger mecha level that shit would be so fucking lit

That mech art is attributed to Emerson Tung

Holy shit. Cannot wait this is going to be crazy

Lorewise
Doomslayer has to kill his own child again huh?
I don't think that's the case.
The Slayer is not the Betrayer, you actually meet him on this game.
Which makes sense, every lore regarding our Guy is talked with awe or fear towards him, the past of Argent D' Nur is treated like any other story

I for one welcome I robot overlords. Robotic enemies in games are really fun to fight if done right. Binary Domain and Boredlands 2 had really fun ones to shoot into pieces.

Hayden's character concept is basically "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions," only literally, lol

It’s not as major of a spoiler since I believe that was leaked a couple months back, but it’s cool
to have confirmation.

It’s also kind of weird though

I’m pretty sure the icon of sin was already dead in the original doom 2016. I thought you saw where it was located. So it’s either being brought back solely as a cyborg (?) or the dimension hopping rumors are indeed going to be the canon part of the story. Or maybe both.

I’m pretty sure the icon of sin was already dead in the original doom 2016. I thought you saw where it was located. So it’s either being brought back in a different way or the dimension hopping rumors are indeed going to be the canon part of the story. Or maybe both.
I think what you're referring too was just some
generic class of massive demon called a Titan, rather than the Icon of Sin specifically. I guess they wanted to evoke it though and it's probably a semi retcon that it's alive in this game.

You're talking about the level where you start above it's corpse and jump down the throat right? If I remember the lore talks about there being more than one real big boi

Unless I'm missing something this isn't all that major, I mean
arch viles are in too and 2016 had the same final boss as OG Doom so it was reasonable to expect this.
Cool to have a confirmation though, can't wait.

I wonder if they wish they saved the ssg for eternal.

Will Eternal have a Super Super Shotgun?

Pretty "meh" design for IoS i gotta say. But at least that beats shooting rockets in a wall.

If I recall correctly, in DOOM2016 was in a dormant state awaiting the moment to return, which is expected to be in Doom Eternal
