DOOM Eternal's third act will really let you showcase your skills

Power trip

DOOM Eternal is going to be a balls-to-the-wall experience from beginning to end, thanks to the crazy action of the 2016 title, plus a ton of new abilities for you to mess around with. While you'll have plenty of time to master those new mechanics, the game's finale will present you with the perfect setup to showcase your talents. Director Hugo Martin hyped up the game's third act and its over-the-top nature.

“The fun is mastering it, because that power fantasy, you’re going to earn that… the game is just going to let you put it on display. The third act of the game is just like, ‘Okay, let’s see how you do.’ It’s Bruce Lee walking into the dojo, just like, ‘I’m going to wreck 30 dudes,’ you know.'"

"The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf" project spotted, once again fueling rumors of an animated feature

Could this be the long rumored animated feature?

Earlier today we shared comment from Netflix on just how big The Witcher has been for them. Season 2 is already underway as far as filming goes, and there's sure to be other promotional efforts from Netflix that tie into the franchise. There's been a long-standing rumor that Netflix actually has a supplemental series in the works as well, and today we get a bit more evidence of that.

The Writers Guild of America website has added a listing for The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, which they have listed as a film. That may be a generic category though, and could apply to any number of features. Beau DeMayo is listed as a writer on this project, and he was the writer for episode 3 of the Netflix series, and is coming back for the second season as well.

Along with that mention, voice actress Harriet Kershaw seems to be tied to the project as well. With her inclusion, we once again have reason to revisit the original rumor of this project. We've heard for months now that Netflix has an animated Witcher feature in the works, and this could very well be it.
