I wish game companies would take up after movies and affix a "2" when they release a new product of the same name.

I can guarantee this wont be the same game as the first one, so it should not have the same name.

It won't be. There's no mention of an app and there's a dedicated Invader player.

I haven't played the first one, but it seems to share a lot of similarities. Much like the video game it seems to share enough of the same DNA for the name to make sense.

Sadly there won't be app-driven solo mode (I love playing solo) and it seems like the discover-the-map-as-you-go mechanism of the old Doom is gone

Please add a new entry for it here on BGG! I want the app on my phone to show both versions of the game. I don't like that king of tokyo just updated the box cover for the new version. Now there is no way to see both versions if I get the other one. Please don't do that with DOOM!

Movies are actually really bad about that, too. See the new Ghostbusters movie's title, the Star Trek reboot, or how many movies have been called just "Godzilla".

It seems like a very clean and streamlined design. It also incorporates many of the mechanics used in another amazing oop game from FFG, Gears of War. Great news lately! What more can we ask for?

Oh good, I'm not the only one who saw a little bit of Gears in the design.

I wouldn't be surprised if they added this down the line if the game is successful. It really seems like Road to Legend has been a huge success for Descent and would make a lot of sense to port something similar over to Doom. The only problem I can see is they may not have the rights to create digital content for the Doom IP. The same problem they may have with creating an app for Imperial Assault.

That sound you hear is a million boardgamers running to eBay to try to sell their copy for big-$$$ before people get the news of a new edition.

Wow! This is completely unexpected but completely AWESOME!

With all these surprise second editions, here's hoping Gears of War: The Board Game gets a version 2 treatment

You guys do understand that this will be a very different game.I don't think it well effect the demand (if there was one) for the old one and the expansion too much..

It looks like better figures (although the old ones were good), better card art, worse maps, and very similar gameplay for the Invader (but losing the excelllent colour-coding system), but a new card-driven mechanic for the marines. And a 5th player.

On balance I think it's much like the Mare Nostrum reboot - great for players that don't own the original, but not something I'm giving up my 1e for...

It will probably be more streamlined in play, as that's the trend with FFG these days. I have preferred 1e over 2e of every reboot they have produced though (except TI3, and I prefer that to what those asking for 4e want to see).

from what you can read in the news, it seems that some of the mechanics found in Gears of War have been incorporated in this new version of Doom. Considering the first Doom was the birth of Descent, Descent 2E and Star Wars: Imperial Assault AND considering two of those games are still beeing supported by FFG, they needed to go a different direction.

it sounds like a mixture between Gears of War and the skirmish mode from Star Wars: Imperial Assault with a whole lot more hack & slay & killing. I'll definitely keep an eye on this.

Doesn't look like it, at least with this initial release:

" Each side of DOOM’s asymmetrical gameplay introduces an entirely unique way to play"

There will be 2 sides that play differently (i.e. Invader and Marine players).

This is very cool!

But, because I have the first version, painted, with the expansion, I just don't see myself getting this.

I'm having a hard enough time trying to get it to the table once I lost my DOOM playing partner years ago.

So excited! If I could preorder now I would. Between this, 7th Continent, and KD:M I'm at capacity for games I want to/need to spend money on and play.

I was yuuuuugely excited when I saw the news of this, but the details have me disinterested. The marines look nothing like the classic Doom marines, there's no expanding-as-you-go map, it looks like Imperial Assault skirmish mode with a heavy assist from GoW. I already have GoW, Imperial Assault, and a Doom boardgame that has minis that look like the classic games and plays more like the classic games. Pass.
