What if Doom Eternal didn’t just run into Doom Slayer, Doom Guy or the Marine, if you like, but he would also have a tender half? This idea is not just from the realm of fantasy. Development chief Hugo Martin revealed in the stream on the official Twitch studio of the id Software studio that the authors really thought a lot about this idea.
According to Martin, such a novelty would have to have a really meaningful effect on the result, so that it is not just a cosmetic matter.
At the same time, he added that if it happened, he would like to make it so that such a change really affects the gameplay and is not just a reskin of an existing character. According to him, it would be interesting what impact such a transformation would have on glory kills and the way of fighting in general.
According to Martin, such a novelty would have to have a really meaningful effect on the result, so that it is not just a cosmetic matter. As Video Games Chronicle rightly points out, this would not be a complete revolution. The Marine in a skirt has already appeared next to Doom Guy in the 1999 game Quake III Arena.
This shoe called Crash he will even welcome you to the tutorial and the other bots will talk about him / her as Doom Girl, Doom Lady, Doomette or Shiny-Butt. There is even a short story behind this character. Crash was to be the original Marine’s instructor. So actually higher batches, here you have…
I don’t know if fans of “marines in skirts” would accept it or not, but I actually have a pretty good idea how to test this idea relatively safely with my developers. Doom Girl could easily come as a playable character in the multiplayer mode Battlemode, where you could try out how the reworked gameplay could work based on her own fighting style.
