Id Software is also working on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S upgrades along with general improvements.
The year is winding down for everyone and the games industry is no exception. Id Software, which released the stellar DOOM Eternal earlier this year, released an end of year letter for its community, thanking them for their support. It also talks about the challenges of remote development, The Ancient Gods – Part 1 expansion and recent Nintendo Switch port by Panic Button.
The studio also outlined its plans for next year. On top of PS5 and Xbox Series X/S upgrades for DOOM Eternal and bringing the expansions to Switch, there will also be “general additions and improvements made.” BattleMode will be receiving new maps and playable demons along with a “revamped” competitive structure. Invasion mode is also coming along and The Ancient Gods – Part 2 promises to deliver an “epic culmination” to the story that began in DOOM (2016).
DOOM Eternal is currently available for Xbox One, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia. You can check out our official review for the base game here. Though the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S upgrades are a ways off, the previous-gen versions are still playable on those consoles via backwards compatibility.
