DOOM: The Dark Ages Is Captain America By Way Of Circular Saw

Captain Doomerica

It’s a simple formula to take something that is already cool, and add a medieval twist to it – elevating the aforementioned thing to a new level of hyper-cool. Given that the rebooted DOOM series was already surfing on a wave of super-coolness, I can only imagine that the new reveal of DOOM: The Dark Ages has pushed that coolness to be heights. Beyond hyper-cool, this shit may well be bananas.

The newest entry into the story of the Doom Slayer is a prequel that will let players experience the origin story of the Doom Slayer’s rage – back when ol’ mate was a tool of the Heavens in the medieval war against Hell. Grab your Morningstar flail, suit up in your medieval best, and take a look at that chainsaw shield:

Oh lordy. For a series about shooting demons until they die, the recent series has done a pretty immaculate job of kitting out the Doom slayer with a range of nifty side options – and a shield that is a single ripcord pull away from being a mass decapitation device may just be the coolest thing ever. Add in the amazing ability to yeet the shield like Captain America, you have me wondering why on Earth we are even bothering with guns.

But then of course, you introduce a gun that appears to be a woodchipper that shreds skulls and blasts enemies with bone splinters. The creative juices of the DOOM team appears to be laced with the good stuff, because this is some good shit.

The only disappointing part of this reveal is that the date is slated for 2025, so we don’t get to rip and tear with the new toys anytime soon.
