Henderson’s comment about a “medieval inspired doom world” has caught the attention of many, hinting at a possible thematic shift for the iconic first-person shooter series. The mention of ‘Year Zero,’ ‘The Dark Ages,’ and ‘medieval inspired’ has led to discussions about the possibility of exploring the Doomslayer’s origins in a prequel set in medieval times.

A Multiplatform Release

In addition to the rumored title and setting, reports suggest that ‘DOOM: The Dark Ages’ will be a “multiplatform” release.
