After a long hiatus, the Doom franchise is back and we are going back to the medieval era. Doom received a reboot in 2016, followed by a sequel which goes by the name of Doom Eternal in 2020. Now, a new entry to the beloved series has been announced at Xbox Games Showcase 2024.

You may remember the FTC lawsuit, where leaked Microsoft court document published in 2023 outlined that a new Doom game was in development. We now know that Doom: The Dark Ages is its name, and that it will be a prequel to the 2016 release.

Feel the rage

“Go medieval on battalions of demons, made up of all-new threats as well as familiar foes reforged from Doom’s classic bestiary. Bring their malicious forces to heel with heavy duty shooter combat in a heroic story of epic proportion, powered by the latest idTech engine.”

Inspired by the original Doom players will face clashes with “destructible demons, vicious melee strikes and more.” With a blend of ranged bombardment and melee aggression, any opponent that crosses your path will be sorry!

The trailer shows off gameplay, including weapons, enemies and fantasy-like environments. However, what fans will be pleased to see is that the upcoming title remains as gory as ever.

Doom: The Dark Ages will launch on Xbox (including Game Pass,) PC, and PlayStation 5 in 2025. The game is available to wishlist now on a platform of your choice.

Whether you’re a veteran fan of Doom or you’re just getting into the franchise, you have one objective, destroy all evil that resides in the Dark Ages.
