Another venture into the maw of hell is fast approaching, but developer id Software is reining in expectations on one particular version of the game. Doom Eternal will still be launching on Google Stadia, but it won't deliver a "true" 4K stream.
In an update to Doom Eternal's launch features, Bethesda and id note that Doom Eternal will run at 1080p with 60 FPS on HD displays. However, for those with 4K monitors, Doom Eternal will up-sample to 2160p from 1800p at 60 FPS.
While Doom Eternal similarly up-samples on the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro, this is notable due to id's assurance that Doom Eternal would run at 4K on Google Stadia. Google's cloud gaming service has had a bit of a rough start to the year, and Doom Eternal was one of the platform's big gets. The ability to play in true 4K without a high-end gaming PC would have been a major boost to Stadia's catalog.
Doom Eternal, meanwhile, is looking like the ripping-and-tearing good time that Doom fans probably want. There's an added focus on rethinking multiplayer, and the gameplay we've seen so far looks pretty rad. While Stadia owners won't get the highest-end resolution options possible, they'll still get to play Doom Eternal when it launches on March 20, 2020.
Keep an eye out for Doom 64 as well, which re-launches for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch on the same day as Doom Eternal with a brand new chapter to play.
