DOOM Sacrifices SnapMap and Multiplayer for a Switch Release

DOOM- Nintendo Switch vs PS4 Comparison Screenshot

Doom will come to the console before the end of 2017 and will include all current multiplayer DLC in a day-one update, while Wolfenstein has a somewhat "open" release date of 2018. Thanks To publisher Bethesda.

The last but probably biggest announcement from the Nintendo Direct event was that Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus would be coming to Switch. The title sold thousands of copies on PC, PS4 and Xbox One consoles.

Doom originally launched on PS4 and Xbox One in 2016 and perhaps was a bit unlucky to have launched in that year as it had to compete with some other incredible shooters such as Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 amongst others. With the Switch being able to support such a massive game like Skyrim, that opens the door to other developers, like Rockstar Games, to step in and shake things up if they were to release a game like Grand Theft Auto or Red Dead Redemption for the handheld-hybrid console. Yet the game stood on its own two feet and was praised by fans and critics alike for its all guns blazing gameplay, and its incredible soundtrack.

Both games use id Tech 6 and apparently, the engine in question can also run on a technically not so powerful hardware such as Nintendo. Wolfenstein II, meanwhile, will debut on those three systems on October 27.

For more news on when Doom and Wolfenstein 2 will be coming to the Switch stay tuned. The surprise wasn't due to DOOM's ultra-violence (how quickly some gamers forget the existence of Nintendo console exclusives such as MadWorld, Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem, and Doom 64).
