Design your HUD the way you want it!

A fresh batch of Doom Eternal gameplay footage has arrived and one of the things that many don't like is the HUD. Luckily, id Software added a ton of customisation options so you can create the HUD that perfectly suits you.

Doom Eternal is one of the most anticipated games of the year and as we approach the release date, which is currently set for March 2020, fresh gameplay footage has been coming from content creators, streamers and gaming websites.

Today, another batch of gameplay videos has been released and it is safe to say that Doom Eternal looks better, faster and more brutal than ever before. However, despite the positives, many excited fans are not happy with one particular feature. It's the UI design or more precisely the HUD. 

Many feel that the HUD is way too colourful and that it does no fit the Doom theme at all. Luckily, id Software confirmed earlier that players will get to customise the HUD elements and these options will be pretty extensive. As you can see from the image above, you will be able to turn off every HUD element, change the colour of all elements and style some of them.

On top of this, you will be able to turn off Glory Kill highlights, change weapon pose for a classic Doom feel and remove on-screen tips. Also, as you progress through the game, you will unlock different menu backgrounds, which can be changed in the settings. 

It is safe to say that id Software put a lot of effort in allowing players to customise the UI to their liking, which is pretty important especially since the UI design is nowhere near the one from 2016's Doom.

You can check out the full customisation options with a detailed description over at Twitter .
