The next episode of Discovery Channel's MythBusters — the show in which rumors, urban legends and myths are tested with a scientific approach — will explore an aspect of video games that most first-person shooter fans take for granted. The question the show will attempt to answer is: "Is it possible for someone to lug around a half-dozen guns, grenades, a chainsaw and a bunch of health packs, while also fending off demons from Hell (or their closest equivalent)?

 

"Using id Software's Doom games — specifically Doom 3 BFG Edition — as a template, MythBusters' Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman will do their best to bust myths about first-person shooters. In a video posted to Bethesda Softworks' YouTube channel, the publisher says that id Software creative director Tim Willits will aid Savage and Hyneman in their Doom experiment. Bethesda says Willits will help their research team "recreate a Doom level in real life."

 

The Doom episode of MythBusters airs this Saturday, Jan. 31 at 9 p.m. ET on Discovery. Perhaps Bethesda will use the show to give us an update on Doom 4, which we last heard about at QuakeCon this past July, or at least the latest on the promised Doom 4 beta.
