TA Playlist game for December 2020 announced

By The TA Playlist Team,
As we spend the last few days of this month exploring the fate of Columbia (and the toilets of Columbia) in our November Playlist game, BioShock Infinite, the TA Playlist game for December has been decided, and we’re here to announce it to you all.

We chose the traditional December theme to showcase some of the best/most played games that have been released this year. Your votes have been cast and counted, and the winning game is... Doom Eternal

Doom Eternal Achievements

Doom Eternal is the sequel to the modern reimagining of the original first-person shooter game. Developed by id Software and published by Bethesda Softworks, Doom Eternal is also, obviously, a first-person shooter and serves as a sequel to Doom from 2016.

As before, you play as the Doom Slayer (or Doomguy). You are once again on a mission to end Hell's consumption of Earth and foil the alien Maykrs' plans to exterminate humanity. Shoot and stab demons of all types to help free the Earth and discover the Doom Slayer’s history.

Doom Eternal features even more grotesque demon types to kill than its predecessor, requiring some thought to defeat along with the usual gory spectacles that we expect from a Doom game. It retains the fast-paced, aggressive action, and the BFG, that Doom is famous for,

Doom Eternal holds an impressive 4.42 out of 5.00 rating here on TA. It’s been started by just under 85,000 users on-site, with only 1,500 having completed the game. The Extra Life mode of the single-player campaign and the multiplayer Battlemode appear to hold the key to the most challenging achievements. All-in-all, it is estimated to take 25 to30 hours to complete (with 5 to 6 hours more including the DLC).

Most importantly, Doom Eternal is currently a part of Xbox Game Pass. It won the TA Playlist vote with around 40% of the vote and wiped the floor with its competitors.

Here are how the full results of the poll shook out:

Join us in December as we free the Earth and round out the year by kicking some demon arse.

As a side-note, we are aware of an issue where some users couldn’t vote in the poll and were being asked to log in before they could. This has been a site-wide issue affecting many polls, and the site developers are aware of this issue. This will hopefully be fixed in due course.

The TA Playlist is a monthly community event. Everyone votes on which of four games to play, and then we all play through it in the following month. There's a dedicated hub to discuss everything about the game, from story beats to gameplay tips – and of course, you can track your achievement progress during the month as well. TA Playlist was created by Mark Delaney and is now run by Miles, Nici and Chewie.
