I Hope You Weren’t Excited for That ‘Doom 4’ Reveal

In news that’s likely to cause a bit of frustration for eager Doom fans, Bethesda has announced that the Doom 4 reveal they teased us with last month will be exclusive to QuakeCon attendees. This means unless you’ve booked a trip to Dallas, TX on July 17, you’ll have to wait with the rest of us to see what id Software has been working on for all these years.

Or I suppose we could all just wait for the inevitable leak onto the Internet, likely courtesy of a shaky mobile phone. That works too.

“This an exclusive thing we are doing for attendees as part of our annual QuakeCon Welcome presentation,” Bethesda explained in a post on the Bethblog. “We’ll have plenty more to show everyone at a later date, but we didn’t want another QuakeCon to go by without doing something special for the amazing QC community and id supporters that have been with us for more than 20 years.”

That’s it, folks. I suggest you smother any pent-up excitement you may have had for seeing something from the next Doom later this month, because Bethesda won’t be sharing it with us after all. How does this make you feel?

And here’s the game’s E3 debut, if you missed it or simply want to watch it again (I wouldn’t blame you if it’s the latter).

      I’ll be starting a support group soon. Together, we can get through this.

      • Weresmurf

        Ok. I’ll bring the meth.

        • Weresmurf

          Cookies. I mean cookies…

  • This is fucking stupid. How the hell do you show off a teaser trailer at the biggest gaming event in the world and then do this?

    • Chandler Of-Adelaide

      Because it’s a Doom game, and it’s QuakeCon and it’s no different whatsoever to how Blizzard do things at BlizzCon, and if all developers or publishers had their own cons they’d do exactly this as well.

  • io.oi

    Much disappoint D:

    But I will still be first to download that shit and play it when it’s out. =D

  • Chandler Of-Adelaide

    I’m indifferent on the matter…all it means is that we have to wait an hour or two after it’s revealed at QuakeCon to see it posted online. With the way phones are these days it’s not exactly gonna be a 240p upload.

  • Brodequin

    Weird, very weird and childlish. That supposed to make Doom fans (and potential new buyers) more hungry for it or what? I’d say that only makes me laugh.

    • Chandler Of-Adelaide

      How is it childish?

  • VictorCrowley

    Eh, whatevs. I’m in no hurry. Doom isn’t exactly burning a hole of anticipation in my mind for the time being. I like the series, but I have plenty to tide me over till whenever.

        OMG I deleted this comment hours ago after I saw the original post was “awaiting moderation” or something there of. Fine, I’ll take credit for it. I can’t help but have some fun with the spam trolls on my favorite sites.

  • Chandler Of-Adelaide

    Honestly, what’s the expected delay between QuakeCon and a public reveal? Is it gonna be 6-12 months? Even 3 months?

    • Boxcar

      I expect it’ll be a week maybe

      • Striker The Hedgefox

        It’s already been stated we won’t see anything until well into 2015.

  • Gregory Miller

    I’m going to smother YOU with my pent up excitement, Adam! I can’t be very upset about this as it’s not like they’re getting to play the game.

    • Adam Dodd

      Don’t smother me, I want to see Doom 4 before I die!

      • Gregory Miller

        Ok fine but tell me this–which of the upcoming games are you most excited to get your hands on? It doesn’t even have to be a horror game. I’m excited for Destiny and Alien Isolation.

  • Ricardo Pinto

    I’m waiting for the beta (I got the key allready)

  • I’m used to waiting for a new Doom. Guess I’ll just keep waiting even more.

  • GothicGuido

    I’d be more bummed if I didn’t have BloodBorne and The Order to also be excited about. I’m still hyped for Doom4 but Doom is like the McRib… Even if it goes away for a while, you know it can’t stay dead forever.

  • Anas Shaikh

    *IDDWM* Infinite-Wait mode activated.

  • megadave

    I’m getting really worried. With Carmack quitting and this game restarted several times, I gotta feeling Zenimax is gonna butcher the game, rushing ID to get it done.

  • TomDobo

    Well this is shitty news. Surely it must leak onto the internet a couple of days later.
