Pulling sweet kickflips might not be what you naturally associate with the Doom franchise, so it's initially somewhat surprising to hear a member of the development team describe the upcoming DOOM's arenas as "like skate parks".

No you won't be challenging a demon to a skate-off. What executive producer Marty Stratton means is that the game encourages constant momentum, and gives players plenty of wide open space and options for vertical movement.

Several in-engine screens of the initial concept for Doom 4 were leaked last month, and I don't think I was alone in thinking they looked precisely naff-all like the demon-blasting shooter series we know and love.

Bethesda certainly agreed with me. Marketing VP Pete Hines has been talking to Polygon about the canned project, and his assertion that it felt like Call of Duty “with a Doom skin on it” doesn't surprise me in the least.

Screens leaked from original version of Id Software's Doom 4

Before Id Software had a bit of a rethink and went for a very familiar-looking Doom 4 (okay, technically it's supposed to be called DOOM), replete with skeletons wearing miniguns on their shoulders, there was another, very different version of the game in the works at the studio.

Some screenshots of that initial project have surfaced on fansite Doomworld, and I think hardcore fans of the series might just be glad this version didn't work out.
