The next Doom game has been a long time coming — and next month at E3, developer Id Software will be showing off the gameplay.

It does have everything you need to make a Doom title, however: there's a demon, and there's a gun.

To be specific, the demon is the Revenant, an enemy that first debuted in 1994's Doom 2 and again in Doom 3. Here he / she / it is now:
