Id Software knows the most intuitive and honest way straight to their fan hearts. And this has already been proven on multiple occasions. Today marks yet another occurrence where we can, once again, express our honest gratitude and appreciation towards the developer’s actions. DOOM Eternal is launching on March 20, 2020, and to our jolly liking, the newest demon blaster won’t carry any microtransactions, nor will it have a P2W-dedicated store. Isn’t that a bloody blast?!
Just recently, Hugo Martin, the creative director of DOOM eternal has answered one of the fan comments on Facebook with a strong confirmation – their upcoming gore-spectacle of a game won’t require players a dime more than the original purchase price. In Hugo’s words:
‘’Eternal is a $60 game, not a free to play or a mobile game – we are giving u a complete experience with no store just like you’d expect. Unlocking skins with XP is a part of the experience’’
So, basically, the game will have plenty of cosmetics and all that jazz, however, they won’t be affecting your power stats, and will rather serve as an additional style boost. You’ll get to acquire those for XP points, and even by doing so, you won’t limber your DOOM Slayer in exchange. Though the predecessor DOOM (2016) also did not present a dedicated P2W store, some multiplayer DLC’s were still sold separately, for a time period.
Hopefully, id will continue moving onwards and have learned enough from their past ventures to know better – by the looks of it, they surely do. As DOOM Eternal’s executive producer Marty Stratton described, the game is like ‘’Speed Chess’’ and a ‘’junk food with nutritional value’’, and honestly, we cannot wait for the official release. DOOM Eternal will release on March 20, 2020, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia and PC.
If you want to secure the title at a cheaper price, we’ve got quite the offer. Pre-order DOOM Eternal on Eneba today, and march straight into chaos the very moment the gates open.
