In-Game Updates and Upgrades

PCgamer talked about some of the new enemy variants found in the game arena. The Armored Baron has upgraded its armor and attacks with charged fist offense. The Stone Imp has a thicker defense skin compared to the previous series and can roll around while being charged with fire. The Cursed Prowler could cloud players' visibility and disable  dash ability until they  manage to land a Blood Punch on it.

Players also need to be careful of killing the Screethers, as they can empower nearby enemies when they die.

Brand new weapons would also be released in this second saga. The hammer featured in the trailer called Sentinel hammer kills all fodder enemies and stuns major enemies with its wide AOE shockwave attack. This makes it easy for players to pick and prioritize certain demon enemies. Dazed enemies have a chance to drop ammo, which can help resource allocation loop.

The game director Hugo Martin hinted in that the Sentinel hammer can make major plays against the Marauder. "If you hit him on the green flash, slam him with the hammer, you could combo him, and you know, he falters long enough that you could kill him in one shot."

What Happens to The Future of Doom?

Polygon opened an interview with Martin about the future of this popular game. Hugo said that the Doom Slayer is a somewhat timeless character, and there are many possibilities of what the hero could do going forward.

"The Ancient Gods - Part II" marks the end of the story that began in 2016 "Doom." However, the universe it leaves behind still has a lot of potentials to offer. Developers and designers said that as long as people still have reasons to play "Doom" games--the over-the-top gore and violence, the self-seriousness mixed with a little camp comedy, and the complete faith that good offense is always the answer for best defense--then the future of the game still looks promising.
