Doom 2016 – PC

Every monster and demon you come across can be Glory Killed – there are tons of these sickening
execution animations. Each one is based on the angle of the kill, what weapon you’re carrying and
which demon is getting its life extinguished.
Evil demons, massive guns and a fight to save… well, everything. That’s what DOOM is all about, and a more welcome remake is hard to imagine. This revisiting of one of the games that helped define the FPS genre is extremely exciting, and we’re hoping that the developers manage to capture the essence of the originals. Then again, with id Softworks doing the hard labour, we probably have nothing to be concerned about.

Veteran studio id Software began developing the original Doom back in 1992 and remains one of the industry’s most enduring elder entities.
