You can learn a bit more about Doom Eternal below. Bethesda has passed along a fact sheet as well as screenshots / art.

Doom Eternal is coming to Switch, Bethesda announced at QuakeCon today. Panic Button will be working on this version of the game, as was the case with the previous entry in the series.

Here’s a rundown of information shared during today’s presentation:

One of the big features Psyonix has been working on for Rocket League is cross-platform parties. Players can register an in-game ID comprised of a name and a unique code, add friends from other platforms by entering their ID into a new in-game friends list, and party with friends online.

The functionality will be added under the name RocketID. However, fans will have to wait a bit longer for its arrival, as it’s now planned for September.

Rocket League’s latest patch notes have gone live. On Switch, all players can download version 1.0.9 (also known as version 1.49).

Today’s update includes the addition of the Zephyr Crate. A number of bug fixes have also been implemented.

With major changes headed to Rocket League this summer, including Rocket Pass and the progression system, Psyonix has shared details regarding the drop rates in Rocket League’s Crates and Keys system.

Earlier today, Panic Button held a lengthy Reddit AMA. The studio discussed its Switch ports, working with the system, porting process, its relationship with Nintendo, future project, and a whole lot more.

Here’s a summary of the notable points: 

Digital Extremes surprised everyone last weekend by announcing Warframe for Switch. Panic Button, who has significant porting experience with the platform, is bringing this one over.

When Warframe does come to Switch, it won’t support cross-platform play. This isn’t just a Switch thing, as it’s the case on other platforms as well. However, Digital Extremes isn’t ruling out the feature entirely for the future.

Aside from Nintendo, Panic Button might be one of the companies that knows the most about Switch’s hardware and what’s it’s capable of. The team has converted some high-profile games for the platform, including Doom, Wolfenstein II, and Rocket League. We also found out yesterday that the company is making a port of Warframe.

In an interview with USgamer, Panic Button general manager Adam Creighton expressed optimism when speaking about Switch’s future. He told the site:

The free-to-play cooperative online action game Warframe is coming to Switch, Digital Extremes announced at TennoCon today. Panic Button, who previously ported Doom, Wolfenstein II, and Rocket League to Nintendo’s console, is working on the release.

Here’s the full announcement and trailer:
