Doom is finally getting its Xbox One X enhancement patch tomorrow, March 29. As a an added bonus, id Software also announced that a PS4 Pro update will also arrive tomorrow as well.
The Xbox One X enhancements were announced back in E3 2017, but no release date was ever given for the patch. The PS4 Pro support was also unannounced at the time, so perhaps in the middle of working on a set of Xbox One X enhancements id just decided to make a PS4 Pro update while they were at it.
The update for both Xbox One X and PS4 Pro will deliver a "4K resolution patch," which is expected to make an already visually impressive game look even better. No word yet on the exact specifics of this 4K resolution patch, but we will update the story as more details emerge. The original Doom was able to hit a near constant 60fps which helped bring to life its vision of hell on Mars. Perhaps our colleagues at Digital Foundry could help us fill in the blanks when the 4K resolution patch drops tomorrow.
Doom is considered one of the best games of 2016, reviving the Doom franchise with all the guts and glory the series was known for. Our Doom review awarded the game a 4.5/5, praising it as a "loud, gloriously gory, blisteringly fast, and thoroughly entertaining old school shooter."
Doom was later released on the Nintendo Switch with a pretty good port. While a 4K patch probably won't be making it to the Switch for obvious reasons, that particular version of Doom does have a pretty good motion control update that lets you use the Switch's gyroscope. So there's that.
