The next instalment in the legendary DOOM series, DOOM The Dark Ages, has finally been revealed at the Xbox Games Showcase - and it's coming next year.

The title, which is coming to Xbox Series X|S and PC, will launch on Xbox Game Pass in 2025. It'll also launch on PS5.

DOOM The Dark Ages is a new prequel to 2016's reboot

A prequel to the 2016 franchise reboot, DOOM The Dark Ages features gothic-looking enemies and a whole host of new weapons to tear them apart with.

A new blog post says "Wage war as one man matched against Hell’s legions in a dark fantasy setting expanding the DOOM universe."

"Witness the origin of the Slayer’s rage and his rise from a kingdom’s last hope to Hell’s greatest fear in this pulse-pounding, cinematic prequel to DOOM (2016) and DOOM Eternal."

"Blast, bludgeon, bisect and break through the enemy ranks using the Slayer’s superhuman strength, lethal arsenal and unmet tenacity. Supplement your trusty Super Shotgun with The Dark Ages’ new weaponry, including the face-shattering Flail and revved-up, throwable Shield Saw."
