The director on Doom Eternal recently talked up the game on a recent livestream and while discussing the game teased the idea of a female slayer.
“I’ve thought about it,” game director Hugo Martin said (via VGC) when asked on having a female slayer. “I think if we did it, I’d want it to be lethal. I think it’s interesting how it would impact the Glory Kills and the weapons that she would have.”
He added, “The fighting style [would] certainly [be] all aggression, absolutely, but a different type of aggression. I would really strive to have it impact the gameplay in a way that was meaningful. I’ve definitely put a lot of thought into that, actually!”
“Tonally, when it comes to designing the action, you think about, ‘if The Slayer is a Ferrari, then what would a female Slayer be?,” Martin said. “What would a Medieval slayer be?’ How would that effect things and what sort of analogies would you draw from that to allow it to influence the experience? It definitely would be cool.”
Doom Eternal is available on Windows PC (via Bethesda, and Steam), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, Nintendo Switch, and coming soon to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. In case you missed it, you can find our review here (we recommend it!)
