DOOM Eternal devs talk about the game's Tex Avery-style approach to violence

Learning from the cartoon masters

DOOM has always been a gory series, but advancements in hardware have allowed for the series to be more gruesome than ever. That means the dev team behind DOOM Eternal are going for the the most realistic depictions of DOOM violence ever, right? Not the case say Marty Stratton and Hugo Martin, game director and creative director on DOOM Eternal. Sure, things are going to look violent, but it's about finding the ridiculous aspect of the violence and heading in that direction. Stratton and Martin explained in an interview with GamesIndustry.

Hugo Martin: "Our gore is not real. It's more Warner Bros. animation level of gore. It's zany Tex Avery stuff more than it is shish kebabing somebody's eyeball on the end of a stake... And we've always ridden that line. It's ridiculous. It's cartoonish gore and violence, so I think that makes it less disturbing to play and to create for the artist."

Marty Stratton: "That's a real conscious decision on our part too," Martin said. "I have kids. There's no nudity. There's no cursing in our game. You don't kill human beings; you actually protect them. It's a violent game, there's no question. But there's a nuance to it, and I think we've never had any issues internally with any of the artists. And I don't see us having one in the future, just because the style of the content is, while still being gory, not quite as real."

Bethesda and Rebel Distillers join forces for an official DOOM vodka

Made from bones?!

DOOM is a world of flames and demons, a barbecue pit of action. This world first vodka, using bones sourced from world famous butchers ‘The Ginger Pig’.

Matt McGivern of Rebel Distillers says, “We’re tapping into one of the world’s favorite hobbies, video games, to offer a unique perspective in spirit production. DOOM Eternal is a world of flames and demons, a barbeque pit with action – a smoked bone vodka is certainly a new take on spirit provenance.”

“We’re also excited to partner up with The Ginger Pig,” McGivern said. “They’re one of the best butchers in the country where animal welfare is unparalleled, and a product often wasted can be put to good use. We’ll be making a limited amount of the product in the lead up to the game’s launch in November.

The vodka itself is an organic wheat base. Once the bones have been roasted and smoked, the marrow is extracted and macerated in neutral grain alcohol. To extract the best flavour and the clearest spirit, it’s distilled at a very low temperature in a vacuum still to collect the essence of what makes this flavour a delicacy.

If Hell created vodka….

How do you drink? However you damn well like, but to luge it ice cold through a bone always impresses.

Limited edition Bone Vodka made with only the finest ingredients. Please note these are able to be shipped to UK, EU and AUS.

If you'd like to snatch up a bottle of the official DOOM Vodka, you can lock in your order right here.

Best Buy offering DOOM Eternal steelbook for those who preorder

DOOM is so metal

DOOM and metal just seem to go together, don't they? Why not pair your preorder of DOOM Eternal with a steelbook case from Best Buy? Lock in your preorder and you'll get to take one of these cases home. Please note that the inside of the case most likely has a spot for a disc, and not a game card. Still though, it's an awesome case!

DOOM 64 "multiplatform" classification pops up in Australia

Are we DOOMed?

Not that long ago, we shared news of a Euro classification for DOOM 64. That listing stated PC and PS4, but many think it'll be coming to Switch as well, since the ratings for DOOM Classic and DOOM II stated the same. Now we have another listing for the game, this time for Australia. It's listed as multiplatform, but Australia tends to do this with almost all their ratings. Hopefully it's just more proof in general that the game is coming soon.

DOOM Classic and DOOM II getting an update to improve lighting, audio, and performance

Enjoy your stay in Hell a bit more

Bethesda continue to support DOOM Classic and DOOM II with new updates. A patch is in the works for both games that aims to improve in-game lighting and audio to match the originals, as well as add game performance improvements. No word on when the patch launches yet, but we'll keep an eye out.

DOOM Eternal will take 18-to-22 hours to complete

Enjoy your stay

DOOM Eternal is going to give you a lot of bang for your buck. The 2016 version of DOOM took around 12 hours to complete, but DOOM Eternal is looking to give players a lot more content. According to id Software’s executive producer Marty Stratton, DOOM Eternal is going to pack in 18 to 22 hours of gameplay. I'm sure plenty of people will try to rush through it to beat that mark, but I'd rather take my time and enjoy the ride!
