Doom Eternal release date on PC, Switch, PS4, and Xbox One

Here's when players can expect Doom Eternal to release for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Google Stadia.


After E3 2019, buzz for Doom Eternal is white hot. The latest FPS release from id Software appears faster, smoother, and more brutal than ever, showcasing all the power made available through the id Tech 7 engine. Since loads of new gameplay footage was revealed at E3, players could naturally assume that the game is pretty close to release, and they would be right. Read on to learn the release date of Doom Eternal for all platforms.

Doom Eternal release date | PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Google Stadia

The Doom Eternal release date was originally set for November 22, 2019. However, Bethesda recently announced that it would be pushing the release date back to March 2020. When Doom Eternal releases, it will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC first. The developers are also still planning to release Doom Eternal on Nintendo Switch, however that release date is unknown at this time and will come after the initial release in March of 2020. 

It's a good thing, too, because the game frankly looks fantastic. The new gameplay footage shown off at E3 2019 was the deepest dive we've seen yet, and it all looked terrifically visceral. You don't have to take our word for it, of course — check out the new gameplay footage in the video embed featured above.

What's new in the upcoming release? Lots, it seems. There is a continued emphasis on aggressive action, with the stoic demon slayer making use of the usual sorts of rockets and bullets in addition to bladed weapons and a sort of grappling hook. Doom Eternal will also feature many new enemy types, as well as some being brought back from games that released before the Doom 2016 reboot.

Doom Eternal will also feature multiplayer modes. One is rather aptly named Battlemode, and it pits one player as the Doom Slayer against two player-controlled demons with special powers. The other mode is called Invasion, and it's an asymmetrical affair where players drop into others' single-player games while assuming the role of a random demon. How's that for a head trip: After mowing through hordes of AI enemies, you notice that one particularly tough baddie seems to be moving differently, perhaps playing mind games with you. It's enough to make anyone second-guess themselves.

Doom Eternal will release in March 2020, and unless you primarily play games on a mobile phone, it's safe to say the newest id Software release will be made available on the platform of your choice.
