DOOM Eternal Update 1.01 Confirmed
In more interesting news, Billy Khan, the game’s lead engine programmer, has confirmed that DOOM Eternal will run at a blisteringly smooth 60fps on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro. Now that’s pretty impressive, right?
DOOM Eternal is scheduled for release on March 20 for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One, with a Nintendo Switch version arriving at a later date.
Recently, id Software revealed that it has been squeezing as much as possible out of the game engine for PS4 and Xbox One, saying console gamers have ‘something really special to look forward to.’ The studio also reckons it’s the ‘best game‘ they’ve ever made.
One of the new additions to the shooter sequel is the multiplayer-based Battlemode, which sees one player as the DOOM Slayer going up against two iconic demons.
Last year, the development team behind the highly anticipated title confirmed that its tech is scalable to next-generation systems, indicating the company is more than ready to embrace the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett.
