I'm kinda sad because I'm probably one of the few players that REALLY enjoyed Doom 2016 multiplayer, tons of different modes to play and a big arsenal of weapons and power-ups! I will buy Doom Eternal 100%, let's see what new things it'll bring us!

Never really played Dooms MP for long. Maybe I played 2-3 matches. It's not that I didn't like it, I just don't like MP in general. I'm a campaign guy.

I, for one, will be quite happy with this. I really didn't like the last MP, it was just too fast to die. I guess i Was one of those people who didn't have the twitch skill to pull off decent kill streaks. I'd much perfer a strat type of game. This sounds very appealing and may change my mind about getting the game come black friday.

Im disappointed with this decision however if its what the masses wanted then they would be stupid not to listen.

The game will still be a great blast if its anything like the last one. I still have huge belief this game will be amazing

That's a shame, I like arena shooters and Doom 2016's MP was a decent one and fun for the couple of weeks I played it. Ended up boosting the rest of the achievements when I started to get tired of it though.

Can't really blame them though; arena shooters aren't popular anymore.

Doom 2016's MP was so good. Ton of fun. I didn't even boost any of the achievements. Got em all legit, just playing naturally and having fun. Shame to see it go away.

That stinks. I grinded through DOOM's MP once the season pass went free and I quite enjoyed it. Not enough to make it my main multiplayer game of choice or anything, but the Kill Confirmed mode where one player was always a demon was pretty fun.

Completely agree. HATE this change. Arena shooters are becoming more and more scarce. I am super disappointed in this.

I agree. Just a bit too grindy as I did it after the patch.
Would you kindly?

I personally loved Doom's multiplayer. The only thing I disliked about it was the demon power ups, they were op and threw off the balance of the game. I was really hoping Eternal would have the same
MP and just drop the demon power ups. Oh well, I won't be playing this 2v1 crap.

I was lucky enough to get those armor achievements when they just gave em out, but I did have to hit a certain rank at the end and ended up doing it in one day. I didn’t like it in the beginning but when they started adding more guns and demons it was pretty fun. I’m pretty excited to see how Battle Mode is gonna be though. It does sound pretty interesting.

Only thing that’s kind of disappointing is the assumption that this replaced the original idea when Eternal was announced where other players could invade your campaign as demons, and that sounded friggin awesome.

Exactly.

Campaign is king, but this is f***ing Doom.

The 2016 MP was exactly what it should have been, an aggressive, arena-style blood rush with pickups, tons of guns all set to constant motion. It’s exactly the campaign (which also respected the source material), plus modern game types.

I’m all for experimentation, but if you’re going to do Doom MP, I still really want the classic too. This doesn’t change my opinion to buy, but it will definitely kill my long term engagement.

I guess at least 2v1s won’t take as long to queue when the multiplayer dies.

Don't worry, it'll get patched in during a future update.

For those who doubt, feel free to quote me in a year's time dance

I found Doom 2016's MP super generic myself. Not very fun. Felt more like Halo than Doom

I'd rather there'd be no MP at all to be honest, or at least no MP achievements(I think we can say that about all games though) I can't imagine most people played Doom 2016 for the MP, it was for the campaign.

I agree, the campaign was stellar. I had some fun with MP though, despite myself (usually avoid it). My favorite part was turning into the demons so I'm okay with them taking the multiplayer in this direction!

The multiplayer was fun for what it was (2016). Did it have the same feel as the campaign? Not by a long shot, but to pick up every once in awhile it served a fun purpose. In any event, I very much look forward to anything DOOM related.
