Bethesda and DOOM Fans Rejoice! DOOM and DOOM II have been given a recent update that not only adds 60FPS support for the first-time ever but also gives the game full Add-On support for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS! This means games can now download new levels for the game including John Romero’s SIGIL!
These little small things like these are the reasons why I support Bethesda and iD Software so much. They are constantly trying to do more for there fans and make their games (even the classic ones) a better experience for all fans. Below is the full-detailed list of what updates are coming to DOOM and DOOM II:
Add-On Support – Add-ons can be downloaded for free from the main menu for both DOOM (1993) and DOOM II. We’re launching with an initial batch of Add-ons, but we’ll be in touch with players soon for suggestions on the best WADs to include in the future.
60 FPS Support – For the first time, DOOM (1993) and DOOM II now have native 60 FPS support on all platforms, up from the original games’ 35 FPS.
Quick Saves – While paused in DOOM (1993) or DOOM II, simply press R/R1/RB to save your current position. Should players need to load up that spot again during play, they’ll just need to head back to the pause screen and press L/L1/LB.
Quality-of-Life Adjustments – DOOM (1993) and DOOM II have been decked out with an arsenal of new options and quality-of-life adjustments, including a Quick Weapon Select feature, improved Level Select function, added Aspect Ratio and Brightness options, a new split-screen HUD and more.
