DOOM is now on all your favorite consoles, for some reason
It’s DOOM. On yet another device.
In an effort to add Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One to the ridiculous list of devices that play the original DOOM, including Roombas, a piano, and that graphing calculator you forgot you owned, Nerve has ported the 1993 id Software shooter and its sequels to modern consoles.
Well, what I really mean is Bethesda owns this project, because for some godforsaken reason you need a Bethesda account and internet access to play a game that’s been out for 26 years and ported to everything from your blender to literally the fucking UI inside of Pokemon GO. They are at least changing that in a coming update.
Beyond that, there was a debacle that’s since been covered up where the game said “trial version” in the bottom-right corner, suggesting that it was ported using an unlicensed copy of Unity. That’s a yikes from me.
But hey, at the end of the day it’s still the same old DOOM with woefully outdated graphics, infuriating hitboxes, and wickedly punishing health system. Now, there’s local multiplayer!
If you think that’s wild, watch a developer run Doom on a John Deere tractor.
