New DOOM Gets 10 Second Teaser And Oh My God It's Happening

We may have already known about it, and it had to be shown eventually, but today is the day that Bethesda (the company who years ago purchased the legendary Id Software, and thus DOOM) has decided to give us just a taste.  Just a tantalizing taste of one of the most iconic series of all time that is coming back to rear it's head at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo.

As a (massive) fan of the series, I can only say one thing: 


After a lengthy absence, Doom resurfaced in February 2014, with publisher Bethesda revealing that access to the Doom beta would be given to those that pre-order Wolfenstein: The New Order.

Although a version of Doom 4 existed, that edition was scrapped and the project was rebooted.

"An earlier version of Doom 4 did not exhibit the quality and excitement that id and Bethesda intend to deliver and that Doom fans worldwide expect," said Bethesda's Pete Hines said in February last year.

"As a result, id refocused its efforts on a new version of Doom 4 that promises to meet the very high expectations everyone has for this game and this franchise. When we're ready to talk about the Doom 4 id is making, we will let folks know."

Looks like they are about to be ready come June 14th.

Bethesda is hosting its own press conference at E3 2014. Along with the Doom reveal teased in this video, there has been fervent speculation that Fallout 4 will be shown for the first time too. This has not been officially confirmed by Bethesda, however.

Rumours of Fallout 4 development have been circulating for a number of years and in April 2013, Bethesda confirmed the Skyrim development team is moving onto its next big project, further intensifying speculation that a Fallout 4 announcement is impending.
