Ah, Doom 64, the only Doom game that was not a port of the original Doom (or any of the other Doom games). Doom 64 was released exclusively for the Nintendo 64 way back in 1997, and it was developed by Midway as a sequel that takes place after Doom 2.
As quoted by John Linneman of Eurogamers Digital Foundry in a recent DF Retro…
Doom 64 is “one of the finest technological achievements for Nintendo 64″… “it takes full advantage of the N64 hardware, enabling effects and techniques never seen before in the Doom engine. It runs at 320×240 and, unlike other versions, operates at a rock solid, locked 30 frames per second”.
Why am I talking about Doom 64 all of a sudden? Well, the exclusive has just popped up on a PEGI age-rating for PlayStation 4 and PC. But saying that I expect it to come out for everything, this includes Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
Here is the tweet below!
