Nintendo has announced that Doom for the Nintendo Switch will be released on November 10. In celebration of this announcement, Bethesda has also released a new video with the game’s creative director, Hugo Martin, and executive producer, Marty Stratton, as they discuss the features and modes that’ll be included in the game.
Bethesda had previously said that the Switch version of Doom would come with the game’s Arcade mode, along with all of the DLC content, and features from the original single-player campaign. Sadly, due to technical constraints, the much-loved SnapMap level editor won’t be making the move to the Switch. Bethesda has confirmed that the physical release of Doom won’t come with the multiplayer mode on the cartridge, and that players will need to download this mode separately. So, you may want to get a Micro SD card ready.
In Doom, players take on the role of a nameless marine who has to fight his way through hordes of demons that have escaped from the depths of hell. This series reboot moves away from the slower survival horror approach of Doom 3, and returns to the faster twitch-based pacing of the series roots. Doom also introduces platforming elements, the ability to upgrade your character, and fancy executions called glory kills.
Doom is out on the Nintendo Switch on November 10. It’s previously been released on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
