DOOM (1993) didn’t just revolutionize gaming – it pushed the boundaries of technology itself. Since then, id Software has maintained its penchant for evolving tech, with DOOM Eternal debuting a whole new engine built for a whole new era of gaming: id Tech 7.

In conjunction with IGN First, id’s lead engine programmer Billy Khan got a chance to talk about id Tech 7. Learn more about how id Tech has evolved since the release of DOOM (2016), what current-day players can expect, and even what to look forward to as the upcoming generation of GPUs and consoles looms closer.

Don’t forget to keep it locked to the Slayers Club for more awesome DOOM content! DOOM Eternal launches March 20 for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Google Stadia.
