Hell was a place no mortal was meant to experience. But to hell with that! DOOM 64 is launching 20th March, 2020 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC alongside DOOM Eternal as a pre-order bonus. Nintendo Switch players can purchase DOOM 64 on 20th March, or pre-order to receive the game for free when DOOM Eternal launches on the platform at a later date. The release marks the first time in 23 years that players can experience the cult classic on modern consoles.
The FREE DOOM 64 digital download is available with any past, present, or future pre-order of DOOM Eternal between now and its 20th March launch.
DOOM 64 – originally released on 31st March, 1997 for Nintendo 64 – is included in the pre-order of the base game as well as the Deluxe Edition as a part of the Rip and Tear Pack. The Rip and Tear Pack also includes the DOOT Revenant player skin, the Throwback Shotgun Weapon skin, and the Cultist Base Master Level, a remixed version of the campaign level “Cultist Base,” with new challenges and surprises.
With more than 30 action-packed levels, DOOM 64 is back and better than ever, giving newcomers and lifelong fans alike a new opportunity to rip and tear. And, with the additional bonuses included in the Rip and Tear Pack, you’ll be DOOTin’ your way through DOOM Eternal in hellish style on 20th March.
DOOM 64 might be getting a re-release like the recently released DOOM trilogy and will most probably release on all major platforms.
This information comes thanks to the game rating board, PEGI who have rated the game for PC and PS4. While this isn’t much to go off of, DOOM and DOOM II also got similar ratings for the PC and PS4 before being announced and released for almost every platform.
If you’re unfamiliar with DOOM 64, it’s what some consider the true successor to DOOM II as it continues the story right after that and features a pretty badass ending along with a host of new gameplay additions. DOOM 3 is a re-imagination of the original DOOM but with a more Horror-like focus.
Many fans think that DOOM 2016 picks up where DOOM 64 left-off and hopefully, this question will be answered in DOOM: Eternal which releases in a few months. Until then, let’s wait for DOOM 64 because it’s going to be an amazing trip down memory lane.
Quakecon 2019 was quite the event as they showed us more about DOOM Eternal however, they took everyone by surprise when they announced that the original DOOM trilogy would release for almost every major platform.
Now, DOOM is a game that runs on calculators, however now they’ve officially ported the entire original trilogy to the Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, Android and iOS.
This caught everyone by surprise, especially since they released it right after they announced it. Do keep in mind that these are Unity remakes and some of these titles require a one-time login with your Bethesda account.
However, it’s pretty good to see DOOM come to every platform, especially since it’s literally been known to run on almost everything.
