Sony Playstation 5 :

In a live broadcast via Bethesda’s Twitch channel, the director of Doom Eternal, Hugo Martin, claims to have thought a lot about include a female lead in the saga, but if you do, you will have to affect gameplay in different ways and offer a different kind of aggressiveness to the male Doom Slayer.

“I’ve thought about this. I think if we did, I would want it to be lethal. I think it’s interesting. how could Glory Kills and weapons impact he might have, “says Martin when asked about the issue by viewers of the broadcast. He adds that the combat system would be equally aggressive, “but a different kind of aggressiveness”.

Martin adds: “I really try hard to have an impact on gameplay in a meaningful way. I’ve definitely thought about it a lot, actually! “” In terms of tone, when it comes to designing the action, you think: ‘If the Slayer is a Ferrari, what would a female Slayer be?’ What would a medieval Slayer be? ‘How could it affect things and what kind of analogies could you draw from it to influence the experience?’ It will definitely be cool. “

At the moment, these ideas have not materialized in any of the games in the series, although as they remember from VGC, in the id Software universe we have seen a Slayer before. In Quake a marine named Crash appears, who according to her biography of Quake 3, was the military instructor of the protagonist of Doom.
