BLACKROOM: A new game from id Software co-founders
With all the talk of the new DOOM game it is only right that two of the original creators of the ever popular and PC gaming game changer have announced that they are making a new FPS (First Person Shooter). Taken from the BLACKROOM Kickstarter page, the details of the game are as follows…
John Romero and fellow id Software co-founder Adrian Carmack proudly announce BLACKROOM™, a visceral, varied and violent shooter that harkens back to classic FPS play with a mixture of exploration, speed, and intense, weaponized combat. Use fast, skillful movement to dodge enemy attacks, circle-strafe your foes, and rule the air as you rocket jump in the single- and multiplayer modes. BLACKROOM launches with unique multiplayer maps and robust modding support for the community to make diabolical creations of their own design – Coming Winter 2018 to PC!
Reading over the other details about the game it does bring me back to the days when DOOM and Quake ruled the gaming market. Fasted paced, twitch reflexes and blowing shit up quickly was fun for hours. Bringing this back would be so awesome! The new game sounds like it will be for the PC only, not the console/PC market were they have to turn down the speed for the console playability.
BLACKROOM is the FPS you have been waiting for: a return to fast, violent and masterful play on the PC. In BLACKROOM, you reign supreme in a variety of multiplayer modes, including co-op, 1-on-1 deathmatch and free-for-all arena in a motley mix of locations including hardcore military sims, hellish infernos and interstellar space. If you prefer a single-player experience, delve into an intense 10+ hour campaign, spanning wildly varied environments, from ruined Victorian mansions to Wild West ghost towns to treacherous pirate galleons and beyond.Advertisement
