I guess you don't want to hear the finer points of the game engine, id tech 6 then, specifically how it raycasts voxel based geometry stored in octrees?

You know, I'm going to try and understand that

Off to google after the match

No need for that, I have found a simple straightforward explanation in image form which I think you will find fascinating...

New shots/info...

BFG and Chainsaw aren't on the weapon wheel since they're used in specific scenarios, Chainsaw is on D-Pad down and BFG is on X. Seems like they're treating the BFG as a panic button.

Weapons have mods you can find, ex. a remote detonation mod for the rocket launcher

Plot premise seems similar to Doom 3. A character named Dr. Olivia Pierce appears on a video suggesting she unleashed the demons as some kind of religious cult thing.

On-screen enemy count isn't numbered but described as "a demon avalanche", "bloodbath"

Chainsaw is a one hit kill on most enemies, multiple on bigger enemies like the Mancubus, power cells are limited

Colored keycards and backtracking for secrets.

Some locations: Lazarus Facility, Martian surface, Titan's Realm

Permanent character upgrades that allow you to swap weapons and mantle

more quickly, increase ammo and health capacity

Swappable perk "runes", ex. one gives you a stackable temp speed boost after melee kills

Hell is more vertical than the UAC facility

Enemies have weak point, ex. the pinky demon is armored in front and soft in the butt

An enemy type only described as "a summoner"

As suspected, idTech 6 appears to be very similar to idTech 5 but with a completely new PBR renderer

Plans to offer "sliders and multi-sampling options" for PC players. Only time in the article PC is mentioned specifically.

Multiplayer mode called Warpath, an domination style mode where the control area drifts around the map

Clan Arena mode, this is just team Last Man Standing.

Swappable "hack modules" are earned through MP progression, ex. Supply Timer that shows spawn timers for pickups on screen. Apparently none of them throw off the competitive balance.

Apparently multiplayer has more guns than single player, including a "lightning gun", this might be GI assuming based on what was offered in the demo portions though.

Namedrops of old Doom WADs followed by statement implying that they won't be releasing mod tools outside of SnapMap because of inaccessibility of consoles.

Examples of modes made in SnapMap: tower defense, moddy single-player missions, VIP escorts, racing challenges

Moddable enemy AI to some extent

SnapMap stuff is all shared on SmartHub, categories like top rated and most played, user profiles, seems a lot like Mario Maker

All SnapMap creations are small instruction files, you can probably forget about custom textures and rooms and whatnot

Still spring release date

Those guys used to freak me out on Doom 2, but by far the worse were these f***ers

You first meet them not long after picking up the BFG. You open a doorway and what feels like about a thousand of them just rush at you. Cue frantic back peddling blasting away at them with the BFG followed by a change of underwear and a quick ECG

100% proper old-school Doom carnage

You can stick your COD, Destiny and f***ing Halo's up your arses. Utter, utter shite as far as I'm concerned. None of them can hold a candle to Doom.

I played John Romero in a deathmatch last year. Never felt so futile in my life. Not sure how involved he is in this. Seems to be a lot of bad blood still with ID
