The new Doom is finally launching on May 13th

After years in development, the reboot of the Doom franchise finally has a release date: May 13th. Publisher Bethesda announced the news this morning with a slick new trailer showing off elements of the shooter's grisly campaign. As you'd imagine, the trailer features lots of demons, lots of shotguns, and lots of demons blown apart by shotguns. The reboot is meant to be a return to form for the genre-defining series, which hasn't seen a new entry since 2004's Doom 3, which received a mixed reaction at launch. The game has had an infamously troubled development process, going through multiple iterations over the years, before landing on the look and feel found in the trailer above. In addition to the single-player campaign, the game will also include multiplayer modes and a new editor so players can create their own maps. When it does finally launch in May, Doom will be available on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
