Originally due to launch in November 2019, Doom Eternal has finally, at long last, arrived for everyone to play (except Switch owners). To celebrate the release that’s been a long time coming, developers Hugo Martin (game director) and Marty Stratton (executive producer) released a nice video message, thanking the developers for their hard work and more.
“On behalf of everyone at id Software, Bethesda, and everyone who’s worked so hard on this game, we want to take this opportunity to say thanks,” Stratton said. Martin added, “So many great people put in so much work to make this day possible, and we really just want to thank everyone involved.”

Doom Eternal was delayed from November to March to give the team at id Software more time to polish the game, and their efforts appeared to have paid off. Doom Eternal is picking up great review scores across the board, including an 8/10 from GameSpot in our review in progress.
Doom Eternal is out now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but Switch owners will have to wait a while longer, as Bethesda has yet to confirm a release date for the Switch edition.
Doom Eternal shares a release date with a very different game, Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The games could not be any more different, as one is about slaying demons in the most heinous and bloody ways possible, while the other is a cute life-simulation game from Nintendo that has, we’re pretty sure, no blood and gore.
