DOOM 64 Port Announced For PC, PlayStation 4, And Xbox One
Back in 2016, developer id Software brought the DOOM franchise back to the forefront of the gaming industry with a brand new entry in the series that proved that Doomguy’s still got it after all these years. With the upcoming DOOM Eternal, the studio is poised once again to take the gaming world by storm with what is being considered internally as the best thing the developer has ever done. Now, while we still have a bit of a wait left before the sequel arrives, it has also been announced that DOOM 64 is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
id Software recently took to Twitter to announce that DOOM Eternal has been delayed into next year, with the updated release date now lining up with what used to be the official release date for the Nintendo Switch version of the game, which has also been pushed out. In addition to the announcement of the delay, the developer also provided a few updates for the game. On top of a new Invasion Mode (think Dark Souls PvP except you’re a demon), those that pre-order DOOM Eternal will also be getting DOOM 64 for free. This pre-order bonus is available on all platforms. The tweet can be seen below:

DOOM 64 releases for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on March 20, 2020. DOOM Eternal will also release on the same day for every console save for Nintendo Switch, which currently has no release date.
