The biggest title to be announced for Nintendo Switch this year is none other than Doom Eternal. It is the sequel to Doom that was released in 2016 for the PC and consoles and came to the Nintendo Switch on November 2017. We got a scare earlier today when there was an announcement that Doom Eternal has been cancelled for the Switch.
However, don’t panic yet because Bethesda just confirmed that Doom Eternal is on the path to a digital-only release. Yes, it is a bit disappointing not to receive the physical copy but at least we get the digital version of the game. Those who pre-ordered Doom Eternal in its physical copy will receive a full refund so make sure to contact your retailer about this.
Doom Eternal’s story starts some time after the events of its predecessor as you continue your mission as the Doom Slayer to destroy the army of Hell and save humanity. The game also launched a new DLC with a new story called The Ancient Gods which is equally fascinating to the main story.
Initially, the Nintendo Switch was supposed to get Doom Eternal on March 20th of this year but the game got delayed. According to the Daily Gaming Report, Marty Stratton (one of the main developers of the game) has confirmed that Doom Eternal’s release date for the Switch will be revealed soon. He also added that it will be just as good as its predecessor.
We are excited to get confirmation from Bethesda that Doom Eternal is still alive and well for the Nintendo Switch. It shouldn’t be long until a release date is revealed to us. Also, based on Marty’s statement, it seems that Doom Eternal will run similarly as Doom ran on the Nintendo Switch.
We can expect it to be running at 30 frames per second with resolution at or below 720p. Doom which is already available on the Nintendo Switch runs pretty decently and we didn’t notice any problems with it when we played it, so we expect the upcoming Doom Eternal to run very well.
