A new video of the canceled Doom 4, notorious for series fans as the “Call of Doom”, has arrived.
The new video on the documentary channel Noclip contains two clips from Doom 4. One of them features a player following Imp, who drags the corpse into a flooded corridor. The battle takes place as the player takes on the two using a dual shotgun. Imps when they teleport throw fireballs when they go.
This footage shows a Call of Duty style replay health system, and overall it looks much more scripted and slower than what we finally got in Doom 2016. Another much shorter clip shows close-quarters combat with humanoid enemies like zombies.
Part of this video was originally Noclip’s 2016 Doom Documentary (Opens in a new tab)However, it is displayed here for the first time in a raw and unedited state. In that old documentary, id described the unreleased Doom 4 as much more scripted and cinematic than the classics in the series. Eventually, the studio decided that the new direction wouldn’t really feel like Doom, and abandoned the project in favor of what would eventually become Doom 2016.
Noclip has also released several footage from the early days of Doom 2016 development, including combat animation tests featuring the original Doom 4 assets. This clearly shows the transition period between the development of the two games and is the seed of what would be a glorious killing system.
The days of calling the entire genre “Doom clones” are gone, Best FPS game It is filled with id DNA.
