Massive DOOM 4 Leak Floods the Internets with Awesome. - This 8-Bit Life
So the Internet has been all abuzz about a massive leak of screenshots and images of character models from id Software‘s DOOM 4. A game many previously thought to be cancelled. Judging by the looks of the screenshots it looks like id might be trying to bring the DOOM franchise into the realm of modern shooters. The inevitable comparisons have been made to games like Call of Duty and while I’ll grant that the point makes sense and has relevance I still think it’s too early to judge. I mean all we are looking at here are character models and screenshots. That being said I would speculate that id wants to make DOOM into more of an open world game. Perhaps in an attempt to own up to the failed promise of Rage. I’m merely throwing out my opinion here and it is absolutely colored by my hope for what the game might be.
Speculation is fun and all (and it certainly pads out the news cycle…) but until we have more information all of the bloggers and game journalists, myself included, are just kind of jerking off in the mirror and daydreaming monster closets with this stuff. Perhaps that’s a bit hyperbolic but fuck it, it sounds funny! Anyhow until then enjoy the galleries below and if you’d like to see all of the character models that got leaked hit this link for the archive!
