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 has announced that it will be updating Doom and Doom II for Switch with a new round of improvements. In-game lighting and audio will now more closely match the originals. Additionally, performance will be improved.

Bethesda will have more information about these patches in the future. We’ll let you know when more details are available.

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 updated the re-releases of Doom and Doom II on Switch. Once the patch is installed, players will be able to skip the Bethesda.net login. It also removes the disconnect notification during gameplay.

Bethesda isn’t done with updates, as it also says it is “working on a more permanent fix to further reduce the visibility of the optional login.” We’ll let you know when that’s available.

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:

Yesterday, Bethesda brought three classic Doom games to Switch. Doom, Doom II, and Doom 3 can all be found on the eShop. These launches were great news for fans, but it didn’t come without a bit of controversy.

In order to play the classic Doom games, players have been required to log in to a Bethesda.net account. It’s far from the worst thing in the world, but some viewed it as an inconvenience while others simply weren’t interested in signing up. Thankfully, a fix is on the way.

Rounding out today’s Doom footage is a look at Doom II running on Switch. Take a look at the gameplay in the video below.
