Bethesda unlocks ‘motion aiming’ for DOOM on the Switch
Hang on tight! It’s going to be a bloody mess.
Bethesda surprised most gamers back in November with the announcement of Doom, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. With a platform that does not perform with graphics-heavy games like other consoles, Nintendo was happy to welcome the games on board. Months later, Bethesda has announced that the development company has improved gameplay to show off the Nintendo Switch’s capabilities, specifically motion controls.
Once you install Doom or update the game, go to the main menu and choose the “motion aiming” option. This option allows gamers to aim by moving the right Joy-Con, similar to Splatoon 2 and other popular motion controlled games.
A new update is now available for #DOOM on #NintendoSwitch, which includes Motion Aiming and multiplayer party support! https://t.co/UmNUdWunLk pic.twitter.com/GnRIj7TVip

I am interested to see how Doom performs on the Switch considering how demanded a game like Doom is. Bethesda is known for their beautiful games, but the Switch has seemingly transformed into an “indie, on-the-go console.” It’s not a bad thing, and I would be happy and excited to see Bethesda and the Switch prove me wrong.
