Doom On Switch Finally Has A Release Date

Tuesday, 17 Oct, 2017

There was no date given back then, but today it was announced: Doom is coming to the Nintendo Switch on November 11. They're the folks behind ports of games like Octodad: Dadliest Catch and Disney Infinity, with recent Switch projects being Astro Duel Deluxe and Rocket League.

Doom contains the full campaign and suite of multiplayer maps, as well as post-release updates and DLC.

Thankfully, publisher Bethesda shared more information on Doom's Switch version a few weeks ago, filling us in on visual quality and other performance details. "They basically took that and ran with it. and really tailored the tech for that hardware without watering anything down".

The Nintendo Switch version of Doom has been given a release date, and there's not long to wait. "Most of the technical sites that evaluated it talked about how scaleable it was and how many options we gave players".

"We knew we had a very scalable engine, if you look at the analysis that was done of id tech 6", Stratton said. "We wouldn't put it in people's hands if we weren't proud of it and we didn't think it was the best possible representation of Doom".

Doom for Nintendo Switch already will hit this holiday season, while Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus launches in 2018. Doom was revealed during the Nintendo Direct on September 13. Doom also introduces platforming elements, the ability to upgrade your character, and fancy executions called glory kills.

Doom initially launched a year ago on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, before being revealed for Switch last month during a Nintendo Direct.
