DOOM Eternal will take 18-to-22 hours to complete

Enjoy your stay

DOOM Eternal is going to give you a lot of bang for your buck. The 2016 version of DOOM took around 12 hours to complete, but DOOM Eternal is looking to give players a lot more content. According to id Software’s executive producer Marty Stratton, DOOM Eternal is going to pack in 18 to 22 hours of gameplay. I'm sure plenty of people will try to rush through it to beat that mark, but I'd rather take my time and enjoy the ride!

Wolfenstein: Youngblood's executive producer talks about the political nature of the game

Playing politics

The entire Wolfenstein series is about taking down Nazis, and the same goes for Wolfenstein: Youngblood. Some would view that element of Wolfenstein: Youngblood's story through a political lens, but that's now how executive producer Jerk Gustafsson feels. In an interview with GamesIndustry, Gustafsson was asked whether or not there's a political message to the game.

"No, but of course it's in some way political since we have Nazis in the game, right? In a way, it also has a political message because for us and how we portray the Nazis, Hitler and the Nazi regime is the evil of the world. They've taken over the world, and they have been pushed back to some extent in this game, but they still symbolize what is evil and you are the protagonist who fights that evil. So in that sense, it's political because it's a message about freeing the world from that evil.

There are many things you can say are political nowadays. But when we write the stories of our games, we don't really think about it as a political message. We just write the story we want to tell. But we don't shy away from it if we notice that there are elements of [politics] in there. And hopefully that goes for other games as well."
