Doom Eternal, the devastating first-person shooter developed by Bethesda, is heading to Nintendo Switch. Bethesda and Nintendo have both announced that Doom Eternal will be available on Switch on December 8th.
While most of the fans are skeptical about the game flow and performance on a handheld device, Bethesda has assured that the game will be running without any problem. According to Bethesda’s official article regarding the release, the game will be available to download starting at midnight. The game’s file size will be 18.8 GB large and will be exclusively available as a digital download.
Regarding DLCs and expansions, this practice is likely to continue in the future with Bethesda launching DLCs and extra content for Doom Eternal. Bethesda has also discovered that the Ancient Gods: Part One will arrive at Nintendo Switch later.
Furthermore, they’ve also exposed all of the known issues occurring on the handheld console, which players should be aware of.
- Issue: Players in the Recent Players menu appear to be removed from the list of boosters without any player input
Resolution: A known issue with the Boosters menu results in more than 3 Boosters appearing when replacing Boosters. The replaced Boosters are removed when returning to the menu later. This will be resolved in a future patch.
- Issue: The equipment launcher appears pink while using flame belch and taking a photo in Photo Mode
Resolution: A known issue that occurs when using photo mode and the Onslaught power-up or cheats code causes the equipment launcher to appear this way
- Issue: The Slayer falls through the bottom of the West cannon elevator when reaching the top in ARC Complex
Resolution: This has been observed when the Slayer is standing in a particular position on the edge of the elevator. Standing in the center of the elevator resolves this issue.
To escort the announcement properly, as a celebratory move, Nintendo has published a Doom Eternal trailer.
