[section_title title=”Benchmarks – DOOM”]
The game is played entirely from a first-person perspective, with players’ taking the role of an unnamed marine, as he battles demonic forces from Hell that have been unleashed by the Union Aerospace Corporation on a future-set colonized planet Mars. The gameplay returns to a faster pace with more open-ended levels, closer to the first two games rather than the slower survival horror approach taken by Doom 3. It also features environment traversal, character upgrades, and the ability to perform executions on enemies known as “glory kills”. The game also supports an online multiplayer component and a level editor known as “SnapMap”, both co-developed with id Software by Certain Affinity and Escalation Studios respectively.
