Doom‘s publisher Bethesda has just posted two large pieces of art on its official @DOOM account on Twitter soliciting fans of the first-person shooter series which one they prefer to see on the cover of the upcoming game. id Software made both the images.
The first of the images somewhat resembles the cover of Diablo. It’s got a demonic goat’s skull with red eyes shaded in grey and black set on an even darker grey and black background. The back of the box (on the left) has a demonic symbol in red, somewhat resembling the kind of pentagram sign you might find painted in blood at a satanic alter in some cheesy horror movie.
The second piece of art, which is my favorite, is a modern recreation of the original Doom box cover artwork and poster art that so many of us who grew up playing Doom will instantly recognize. I feel a sense of nostalgia just looking at it. Hell, just look at it:
It doesn’t get better than this:
Doom is set to release on May 13, 2016 for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Those who pre-order the game from GameStop will receive a limited double-sided poster to hang up on their wall. The game is slated to run at 60FPS/1080P across both console platforms. It will include both a single-player campaign and a host of multiplayer modes.
Be sure to stay tuned to our coverage of the game as it remains in development, leading up to its release and beyond.
