The Demons of the new Doom title will infest Mars base on PC, PS4 and XBone on May 13th. In a trailer that is both disturbing and a bit crazy I can say that I am both excited and bit perplexed. I don't mind gore at all, I own Quentin Tarantino and Ridley Scott movies. That said, this trailer is so over the top as to run up against a bit of puzzlement in my mind. I mean at one point in the trailer you smash a human eye socket into a terminal with a sort of discarded detachment that makes me wonder if the player is actually... human? Regardless of all of that, I will be picking up the new Doom and giving it a go as the single player does look good and the Snap Map building tool looks hellishly fun.

New Doom is also offering a very cool collectors edition featuring a very evil looking 12" Revenant Demon. The statuette looks great but at the $120 price tag i'd have like a soundtrack and art something or other to be included too. That said, if demon busts are your thing, this should satisfy. New Doom is also coming with some interesting digital multiplayer pre-order bonuses that look like they are currently, only available pre-ordering from retail. Curious if these will come to Steam as well?

Also, no word yet on the Doom beta that you were entered into if you pre-ordered Wolfenstein The New Order. Bethesda has said more information will come out on that at a later date.

Oh yeah, and someone got Doom to run on a printer. Not terribly useful but really really cool.

Also, check out Conan play the new Doom with the Denver Broncos' Von Miller, the Carolina Panthers' Josh Norman &​ Marshawn Lynch.

I don't know, it seems to be an afterthought on Bethesdas part though.
