What you need to know

  • Doom 64 is now available on Xbox One.
  • The game is a port of the original Nintendo 64 title.
  • It runs at 1440p on Xbox One S and 4K on Xbox One X.
  • You can purchase it for $5 through the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab).

Doom 64 is a first-person shooter that originally launched on the Nintendo 64 in 1997. The title didn't garner the best reviews at launch because reviewers felt that it didn't do enough to differentiate it from the original. Now it's available on Xbox One and it's full of surprises.

Accroding to Digital Foundry, as reported by MSPoweruser, Doom 64 runs at 1440p resolution on Xbox One S and 4K on Xbox One X.

Yes, that's not a typo. Since the Xbox One S supports 4K resolution — even though the hardware can't render most games at 4K — Doom 64 is an exception. Nightdive Studios pushed the Xbox One S to its limits it seems.

In Windows Central's review, I wrote, "Overall, Doom 64 is a memorable game that one can look fondly at years later. It's a great addition to Doom Eternal, and if you finish the campaign of the upcoming shooter, you should give this one a go. However, don't expect modernized controls or other improvements. It's the same game with the same quirks."

  • What about the OG Xbox One? It's pretty close to the One S in terms of power. Does it also run at 1440p or just 1080p?
  • 23 year old game runs exceeding well on modern day hardware, shocks literally no one.
