DOOM Eternal Is Coming To Nintendo Switch

Share

At E3 2018, Bethesda revealed Doom Eternal. Wait, really? After all the ripping and...? Yep, Id isn't being shy about its Dark Souls inspiration here, literally sharing the same term for letting other players come charging into your world with the lone goal of killing you to death. Players can even team up as demons to form a Slayer hunting party.

Bethesda said today that there are twice as many demons as there were the last time, and a number of the enemies from DOOM 2 are being updated for this game. Doom may be known for its intense firefights and sprawling level designs, but I have a lot of fond memories of blasting through the original game with my sister.

And, oh, the ways you can slaughter them! We also got a look a Phobos, which isn't quite as disgusting, as it hasn't been completely overtaken by demons yet. Pro Tip: demons don't like it when you blow bits off of them, so you should shoot at them until they die.

Unleash the overwhelming power of the DOOM Slayer.

As expected, DOOM Eternal runs at 60 fps and is looking better than ever, with graphical fidelity that exceeds anything the franchise has done before. Destroy every demon in your path with an upgraded array of guns and mods, including the Super Shotgun's new Meat Hook attachment to pull yourself point blank with the faces of hell.

The first part of the demo was set in an Earth city area overrun with demons, and presented a more colourful, neon environment than was seen in the first game.

One feature that the game will offer, though unsure if it will happen in the Switch version yet, is that you can invade the game of other DOOM Eternal players, but they can also invade yours.
