The gory Doom Eternal launch trailer features plenty of dismemberment and a colossal demon

By Sean Carey,
Doom Eternal finally launches next week and to add to everyone's excitement, Bethesda has dropped the official launch trailer for its upcoming first-person shooter. We get to see some more of that fantastic fast-paced gunplay and plenty of gore-filled moments.


The trailer opens with a colossal Demon destroying buildings in a city, presumably on Earth. We know that some of the game is set on Earth during a demonic invasion and the game's events take place eight months after the ending of Doom 2016. We can also see plenty of demons, including a couple of new ones such as the Doom Hunter and the Aracnotron. The trailer also reminds us that "there is only one dominant life form in this universe, and it carries a steel barreled sword of vengeance," followed by some lovely dismemberment.

Doom Eternal is available to pre-download now with a file size of 42.07 GB. According to the game's developers, it will also run at 60 fps on any generation of Xbox One console. If you pre-order the game, you'll also get a copy of the remade Doom 64 as a bonus. The remake features an all-new chapter that adds to the Doomguy's lore.
