Doom Eternal

Animal Crossing: New Horizons isn’t the only big game launching on March 20. Doom Eternal, which was originally scheduled for last November, is now due out alongside Nintendo’s juggernaut title.

Doom Eternal director Hugo Martin only had positive things to say about that during an interview with GameSpot. Martin only wants other games and studios to do well, and he’s personally “excited” to play the new Animal Crossing in a couple of months.

When Doom Eternal was announced, the original goal was to have the Switch version out alongside all other versions. Unfortunately, that will no longer be happening.

A delay for Doom Eternal was announced last year. Whereas it was originally slated for November, the initial release will now take place in March instead. However, we still don’t actually have an exact date for the Switch version.

In a recent interview, id Software’s Marty Stratton commented on the Switch delay. Stratton also said that it’ll be launching “a bit later” on Nintendo’s console, though did not provide a more specific window.

Several sites have released a substantial amount of Doom Eternal gameplay. We’ve taken the time to compile all of the relevant videos and they are available to view below. Make sure to check them all out for every bit of gory, demon slaying action to come in Doom Eternal.

While most of these previews are taken from the PC and Xbox versions of Doom Eternal, this will give a glimpse of what to expect in the Switch version coming later. 

Bethesda and id Software just published a new trailer for Doom Eternal. Take a look at the game’s latest video below.

Bethesda has readied a new Doom Eternal trailer promoting the fact that fans can pre-order the game (with goodies) and that a Deluxe Edition is available. Check out the video below.

Hello, my spookies and cuties! This week on NEP, we have a special guest: Jonas Kaerlev of Gears For Breakfast, creators of A Hat In Time. Oni Dino and Galen chat with him about love for 3D platformers, game design philosophies, and a ton of underrated gems spanning across genres in gaming. In particular Jonas shares how they used their own branch of Unreal 3 on Switch, the necessity of trying new things in game development, and how they overcame Switch’s limitations and created an amazing experience without any big compromises.

We then cover Doom Eternal’s delay news and all the new details we’ve yet to discuss with Luigi’s Mansion 3. Gooigi is still gross. Partner mechanic should’ve been Daisy. We stand by that.

If you’re enjoying NEP, please consider giving us a 5 star review on Apple Podcasts, aka new iTunes. It’s incredibly helpful in getting us exposed to new listeners through algorithms, so we would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you for listening!

Bethesda and id Software have shared some significant news about Doom Eternal today. The major headline is that the game is delayed, and will no longer launch in November as originally scheduled.

The initial release for Doom Eternal is now set for March 20, 2020. However, the Switch version is now said to be coming later, and no new date has been announced.

In other news, Doom 64 will now be a pre-order bonus for Doom Eternal. Additionally, Invasion Mode will be made available “shortly after launch”.

Best Buy has revealed a new pre-order bonus for Doom Eternal. If you reserve the game, you’ll receive the steelbook pictured above.

Note that the steelbook seems to be for something like a CD or Blu-ray rather than a Switch game cartridge. With that in mind, it has a metal exterior and has artwork on the exterior and interior.

You can pre-order Doom Eternal on Best Buy here. Those that reserve the game will also be given $10 in Best Buy credit.

Bethesda and id Software have readied a new trailer for Doom Eternal. Below, you can get a look at Doom Hunter, one of the game’s “new and most formidable enemies.”

Bethesda has published a new Doom Eternal video showcasing the game’s Battlemode multiplayer mode.

Here’s some information as to what’s planned for the feature:
