With Bethesda announcing over the weekend at QuakeCon that DOOM (1993), DOOM II (1994), and DOOM 3 (2004) are now available across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. With iOs and Android getting versions of the first two games.
With DOOM celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year, and DOOM Eternal set to launch in November - everything is coming up DOOM.
DOOM First released in 1993, DOOM introduced millions of gamers to the fast-paced, white-knuckle, demon-slaying action the franchise is known for. The game also includes the expansion, Episode IV: Thy Flesh Consumed, and the console versions will allow players to duke it out in split-screen 4-player deathmatch, as well as split-screen co-op.
DOOM II This beloved sequel to the groundbreaking DOOM gave players the brutal Super Shotgun to bear against deadlier demons, and the infamous boss, the Icon of Sin. The re-release of DOOM II includes The Master Levels for DOOM II (20 additional levels), and the console versions will allow users to play split-screen 4-player deathmatch, as well as split-screen co-op.
DOOM 3 In this critically acclaimed action-horror re-telling of the original DOOM, players must battle their way through a demon-infested facility before entering the abyss to battle Hell's mightiest warrior - and put an end to the invasion. DOOM 3 also includes the Resurrection of Evil and The Lost Missions expansion packs.
As per above split-screen deathmatch and co-op is included across all versions - in addition to stuff like The Master Levels. Very cool.
It's worth noting that there was some controversy surrounding the Nintendo Switch releases, as it required an online log-in in order to play. Bethesda has noted that this was in reference to the Slayer's Club integration - and will become optional in an update. Which makes sense, as on-the-go classic DOOM on the Switch kind of needs to be offline.
According to reports these re-releases are remakes in Unity that support higher resolutions and aspect ratios. And they're all available digitally.
