NEW HACK

EDGE - - FROM HELL -

Along with the weapons and ad­di­tional items (which in­clude cre­ative devices such as grenades that sap health from the en­emy and trans­fer it to you) you take into mul­ti­player matches, you also get to choose from a se­lec­tion of time-lim­ited Hack Mod­ules. Th­ese mod­i­fiers can be switched be­tween each time you die and al­low you to change your play style on the go. You could start each life with ad­di­tional armour, for in­stance, or use Sup­ply Timer to gain the abil­ity to see when a miss­ing item will re­plen­ish it­self. How­ever, our favourite is Ret­ri­bu­tion, which dis­plays the lo­ca­tion and health of the last player to kill you.

“WE DIDN’T WANT MIND­LESS BUL­LET SPONGES – EACH CHAR­AC­TER PRO­MOTES A CER­TAIN TYPE OF MOVE­MENT IN THE PLAYER”

TOP Id thinks of its en­coun­ters as ki­netic “com­bat puz­zles” that must be solved, en­emy be­hav­iour en­sur­ing that they al­ways play out dif­fer­ently.

ABOVE En­vi­ron­ments in this mod­ern Doom are built from evoca­tive and imag­i­na­tive takes on fa­mil­iar lo­cales
