Twenty-seven years is a good age for any franchise. When it comes to such mammoths of gaming as Doom, you don’t even know what to expect at this point. But no one was expecting this: the original Doom (1993) and Doom 2 just received some massive updates.
First of all, both updates of the original Doom and Doom 2 are out now in the Bethesda.net Launcher. Also, you can run them at 60 FPS on all platforms. A big list of add-ons can be downloaded for free right from the main menu, including projects like SIGIL (John Romero’s official continuation of the first Doom) and a lot of fan-made WADs.
Sound exciting? But there’s even more: such small and big improvements as a reworked Quicksave functionality, Quick Weapon Select (along with a Weapon Carousel), Level Select, and more are finally added. Add bug fixes to this list and look: we’re having tons of cool and crazy improvements for games that came out almost 30 years ago.
So nice to see something like this! The Doom fan base should be very happy about these updates.
