Rip and Tear Again When Doom for the Nintendo Switch Comes Out This November

Rip and Tear Again When Doom for the Nintendo Switch Comes Out This November

id Software has a new video that outlines what to expect with the Nintendo Switch version of Doom.

Today, id Software announced that Doom for the Nintendo Switch will launch on November 10.

In a new video from the studio, id's Creative Director Hugo Martin and Executive Producer Marty Stratton outlined exactly what players can expect from the Switch version of Doom. This includes the complete single-player mode, all the difficulty modes with an ultra-nightmare difficulty, and the score-attack arcade mode.

Multiplayer will also be available, but will be a separate, free download for players who purchase Doom on the physical cartridge.

Doom for the Switch was announced for the Nintendo Switch alongside Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus which will arrive later in 2018 for the Nintendo hybrid system.

We previously previewed Doom on the Switch and were impressed by how close to the other console versions the Switch version of the game felt, albeit with slightly less accurate controls (on the joycons) and some graphical tearing during a particularly stressful part of the game.
