id Software is a legendary game developer that has been responsible for myriad classics (e.g., DOOM, Quake, Wolfenstein 3D), but one employee claims that the company has managed to best the entirety of its previous catalog. Lead engine programmer Billy Khan took to Twitter and boasted that DOOM Eternal “is the best game we have ever made,” calling it a “brilliant” experience that “runs butter smooth.”

There’s the possibility that id is merely trying to get a few more pre-orders in, but yesterday’s newly released DOOM Eternal trailer shows quite a bit to help Khan’s case. “Official Trailer 2” alludes to a DOOM experience that dwarfs the 2016 original in terms of both scope and gameplay, offering combat that’s “fluid as silk.”

During E3 2019, executive producer Marty Stratton claimed that id “doubled the demon count” for DOOM Eternal, so that level of refined shooting will certainly be welcome. The game will also offer a 2v1 multiplayer component called BATTLEMODE, which pits two player-controlled demons against the DOOM Slayer.

DOOM Eternal will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on March 20, 2020. Those who pre-order will receive a free copy of what was once a Nintendo 64 exclusive, DOOM 64.
