This just in. The Dark Lord, which we know as The Creator of all beings in the DOOM Universe. Is not the actual TRUE God. There's still an entity beyond him, one that we will probably explore in the next DOOM game. Time to wake up The Slayer again. pic.twitter.com/UN8gutcjOf— MidnightTheSpartan (@MrMidnai) March 26, 2021
This is the worst way you can set something like this up, through a stream and not somewhere from the game itself.
“Oh no, that isn’t the true God, this is the true God!” ... Until they introduce a next deity of some kind. Feels like the lore’s getting redundant at this point. The fact they had the mysterious voice that yells “Nooo!” after beating Khan Makyr changed to Dark Lord and then changed back to mysterious voice already broke some of the immersion for me, and now this power creep.
If the next game’s just more of the same I feel it’ll start to get stale fast. They need to keep it fresh somehow. This all just feels like quick damage control after the community’s mixed response to TAG part 2’s ending.
Hm... After looking at the vague answers given on stream, seems like some people are just looking too much into things while coping with their disappointment from TAG part 2. Sounds like the Dark Lord is still intended to be Lucifer which makes sense, even if there’s a being beyond him which of course there is. How would there be another game otherwise? Still, am content with this being the last one for awhile.
