The newest iteration of DOOM is a technical marvel. Whether you’re playing on PC or your favorite game console, the game runs incredibly. Steady frame rates and fast gameplay is partially why the re-imagining is so great.
Whenit was announced for Nintendo’s recently released hybrid console, the Nintendo Switch, one of the many questions raised was “how well would it run?” According to a Rolling Stone, it won’t run as exceptional as its console counterparts, but will still feature a smooth experience.
DOOM will run at a “solid” and “consistent” thirty frames per second with “outstanding visuals.” Here is the full quote that was given:
“The game and rendering technology underlying Doom is extremely scalable. In bringing Doom to Switch, we targeted outstanding visuals at a solid 30 fps and by maintaining a consistent 30 fps, the experience remains consistently fluid and smooth. We’ve been thrilled with the feedback that Doom is among the very best looking and performing games on Switch.”
Additionally, Bethesda confirmed that DOOM‘s single player modes — campaign and arcade — will “fit on a 16GB cartridge.” The multiplayer mode will be a separate download after you purchase the game — requiring 9GB of space.
The incredibly violent demon shooter originally released last year on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, garnering favorable reviews. The game has seen multiple updates, one of which aptly named Update 6.66 which unlocked all the game’s DLC to its user base. The Switch version was announced during September’s Nintendo Direct.
DOOM for Nintendo Switch will release on November 10, 2017. If you’re interested in the port, you can check out our preview coverage as well as some gameplay. You can also check out our review of the PC and console versions to see what we thought.
