The Release Date for ‘Doom Eternal’ for the Switch is Coming Soon
When ‘Doom Eternal’, the sequel to ‘Doom (2016)’, was announced at E3 2018, many fans were wondering if it would make its way towards the Nintendo Switch. Seeing as the 2016 ‘Doom’ released on the Switch, it would make sense for ‘Doom Eternal’ to be there too. With much excitement, Bethesda revealed that ‘Doom Eternal’ would indeed come to the Switch. However, the release date would be delayed from its original date of March 20, 2020.
Luckily, after months of waiting, it seems like fans of the series will finally get a release date for the anticipated first-person shooter’s arrival on the Switch.
Marty Stratton, one of the main developers of ‘Doom Eternal’, confirmed during an interview with Gamereactor that the Switch release date for the game will soon be revealed. On top of that, he also said that it will be “every bit as good as Doom 2016 was”. This implies that they will most likely run the same way. While some might find this disappointing, many will be excited if ‘Doom Eternal’ runs the same way on the Switch as it’s predecessor.
Will it run well?
It depends on what you find acceptable. ‘Doom (2016)’ was capped at 30 frames per second and the resolution was usually below 720p. However, the game is fully portable on the Switch. If you’re looking for 1080p 60fps, you’d be better off buying it on the PC. Although, if you want to play the game on the go and you don’t mind 30fps (the same frame-rate as The Last of Us Part 2 on the original PS4), then you will definitely find value in the Switch port of ‘Doom Eternal’. Regardless if you enjoy it, it’s always nice to see 3rd party triple-A games coming to the Switch.
