DOOM: The Dark Ages is set in a medieval world. The trailer features more of the gameplay featured in the most recent DOOM games, with Doomguy now wielding a shield along with his usual arsenal. Also he is shown riding a dragon. It’s likely the setting is a reference to Doomguy’s backstory as detailed in DOOM Eternal. This is supported by the trailer opening on the words “before he became a hero”.

The game is the newest game in the Doom franchise since 2020’s Doom Eternal. It will be the first DOOM game released under Microsoft since the company purchased Bethesda in the same year.

DOOM: The Dark Ages will release sometime in 2025. It’s coming to Xbox Series X/S, PC and PS5.
