What you need to know
- Doom Eternal just launched on Xbox One, PC, and other platforms.
- The title is a first-person shooter with plenty of gore.
- The team delayed the game a few months ago to polish up the experience.
- You can purchase Doom Eternal for $60 on Amazon (opens in new tab).
Doom Eternal is a first-person shooter that continues the story of the reboot. It looks absolutely spectacular on Xbox One X and should provide plenty of single-player and multiplayer enjoyment. In addition to Xbox One, Doom Eternal should be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. It was also announced for Google Stadia a few months ago.
Doom 64 was a preorder bonus for Doom Eternal, but it's available separately on the Microsoft Store for $5. It's great to see that people don't have to buy a $60 game if they don't want to to get a $5 title. Doom 64 also looks great on Xbox One X and features crisp visuals and menus.
In Windows Central's Doom Eternal review, Jez Corden wrote, "Doom Eternal is a near-perfect follow up to 2016's sensational reboot of the legendary shooter franchise. The improvements that are good are really good, but some of the new stuff sadly doesn't land very well."
In Windows Central's Doom 64 review, I said, "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."
Relive the classic
Doom 64 is a port of the 1997 classic for modern machines. It features updated visuals, as well as a new level that ties directly into Doom Eternal.
Hell on Earth
Doom Eternal is the next frenetic iteration in the long-running franchise. Set for launch this month, the game aims to bring even more fast-paced action to consoles and PC with new enemies, story, multiplayer modes, and more.
The game was reviewed on an Xbox One X with a code provided by the publisher.

Good to know I'll soon be able to start looking for torrents... Still have some beef with Bethesda for denying my request on a refund for the atrocious Wolfenstein Youngblood on the technicality that my country does not have a law that would enforce them to comply with my request. If I can't get my money back your way then I'll be having you let me play your next game for free to compensate for that =)
I remember Doom 64, one of my favourite versions of Doom with an awesome ambient soundtrack by Aubrey Hodges who was the guy behind the soundtrack on the PlayStation version.
