FFG Take A Closer Look At Invader Gameplay In DOOM

All of the blood splattered gore of DOOM will soon be making its way to the tabletop from Fantasy Flight Games. So, they have now dived into some more of the gameplay features you’ll be experiencing when you don that power armour and fight  like hell…

One of the main things guiding the gameplay is how Operations are set up. These are the missions that you’ll be undertaking each time you get down to the tabletop.

In some cases this might be you trying to extract information from the facility, or simply to butcher your way through the hordes of Demons coming your way.

The Invader (player Hell’s minions) will be trying to frag your characters enough times to win. Diving in a hail of bullets is a great idea but make sure you have enough backup. The Invader also gets a choice of which Demons to spawn from certain locations meaning that you can change up your tactics if needed.

Initiative in the game is dictated by a shuffled deck of cards showing the different Marines and the Invader. This means you’ll not be sure when they are going to strike and the Invader can choose to activate Demons that are most beneficial to them at the time.

Will you be diving into DOOM?
