The E3 teaser video for id Software's forthcoming DOOM (sequel or reboot, who knows at this point) suggested that more on the game would be revealed at the upcoming QuakeCon 2014, but new comments on the official Bethesda Blog clarify that the showing will be limited to attendees.
As announced in our E3 teaser trailer, fans in attendance at QuakeCon 2014 will have the opportunity to get a sneak peek at what’s been going on with the new DOOM game from id Software.

This an exclusive thing we are doing for attendees as part of our Annual QuakeCon Welcome presentation. We’ll have plenty more to show everyone at a later date, but we didn’t want another QuakeCon to go by without doing something special for the amazing QC community and id supporters that have been with us for more than 20 years.
For those of us not in Dallas in a few weeks time, we'll just have to hope that "at a later date" isn't too much of a wait.

Doom 4 was originally announced all the way back in August 2008, a year after developer id Software had announced RAGE, but while RAGE hit shelves in October 2011, the DOOM project has reportedly been completely restarted at least once, and only a very vague teaser trailer has been shown.

must be as disappointing as doom 3. honestly I don't have very high expectation for any game Bethesda release these days.. and if they don't want the world to see what they have done with the new Doom then it must be terrible. sad really cause I have always been a big fan of doom.
Tollaz0r!

Doom 1 and Doom 2 are the only Doom games that exist to me.

i liked doom 3 single player... i expect i will like doom 4 single player as well.
if it has co-op play then it's even more likely i'll like it !

Yeah demon, co-op would be awesome.

Doom 3 had so much going for it, but like many people I found the singleplayer gameplay quite disappointing and would have preferred a more "run and gun" sort of game.
I've still played through it and the expansion more than once though. The atmosphere was very well done.

I wonder if the next game will continue on from it, for a number of reasons. The woman doing the voiceover in the new teaser sounds a lot like the voice talking about the UAC at the start of Doom 3, so there is some continuity there.
In Doom 3 the scientists were experimenting on the demons, which may have lead to what we see now: the fused demonic flesh and UAC metal.
While playing the game you were also presented with a choice, which was whether or not to send a message back to Earth for a rescue. Of course the whole point of that was so the demons could get to Earth, which is where the new Doom game is supposed to be set.

It's fun to speculate.

Yeah, I meant first impressions. I like how he goes thru the game controls and setup before getting into the gameplay.

Poor Doom you are all writing it off before it's even seen...

Doom3 wasn't all that bad, I'm sure they will learn from their mistakes and take Doom back to it's original style just like Doom.

It never had a real chance because they didn't license it to external developers.
