In a recent social media post by the official account of Doom Eternal, it revealed that players can choose a certain feature for nostalgia effect.
Doom Eternal can let players play like
the classic version
There is a new option that allows the
Classic Weapon Pose in the Options menu at launch. The 2016 version of the game
added this option after launch together with the patch as photo mode.
The classic mode that allowed centered
weapons come from the time before crosshairs and mouse-aim were common. Players
had a gun in the middle of the screen and this is where they had to line up
their shots. This changed in the mid-90s when Star Wars: Dark Forces and other
games let players shoot guns while also looking at their sides a bit.
The game will launch sometime in 2020. It will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, and PC.
