The release date for Bethesda’s and id Software’s DOOM has finally been announced. While I wasn’t expecting it until the end of the year, the shocker is that it’s even soon. November 10th, 2017, to be exact.
Yeah, that soon.

Ever since the game was announced, we’ve seen both skepticism and some optimism surrounding the game. To be completely honest, I still didn’t see how the Nintendo Switch was even able to run the game. That all changed once I saw the game in action. And while it’s not par with the PS4/Xbox One/PC ports, the game manages to hold its own. Digital Foundry actually released a video regarding the performance and they were impressed with what they saw. The game ran better on the Switch, compared to a comparably equipped PC.
Switch owners can expect a consistent 30 frames per second experience, at 720p. In addition, the game will clock in at 16GB for the single-player campaign, on the cartridge. If you want access to the multiplayer portion, you’ll need to download an addition 9GB for that. Or if you go the digital route, you’ll need to download 25GB in one shot.
I’m curious on how well the game plays, so it looks like I’ll be diving back into DOOM when this releases. And that’s not a bad thing. You can never have too much DOOM. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Get ready to Rip and Tear all over again on November 10th, 2017.
