If you kept track of the E3 conference back in June, you learned Bethesda announced the next game in the Doom series, Doom Eternal, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. However, on Aug. 10, the official Doom Twitter account confirmed that the gory shooter is also set for a Nintendo Switch release.
The developers stated during E3 that Doom Eternal would be the sequel to Doom’s reboot, which was released back in 2016, and they revealed a teaser trailer for it. Not much to go on, but we do have more news for Doom fans.
Bethesda released a gameplay trailer for Doom Eternal during ZeniMax Media’s QuakeCon convention last weekend, which ran Aug. 9 – 12. The publisher also made a couple of announcements during the event.
You can see the Doom Slayer, a post-apocalyptic-looking version of Halo’s Master Chief, arming himself to the teeth before setting out to fight the demons who have overtaken the world. The gameplay also shows Doom Eternal will be keeping the blood-soaked gameplay of its predecessor, which should keep fans happy.

Bethesda confirmed the game could be pre-ordered even now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Check out the gameplay trailer from QuakeCon below if you haven’t had the chance to view it.
