During the QuakeCon 2019 keynote, Bethesda revealed the re-release of the original Doom (1993) as well as Doom 2 and Doom 3 and they are all now available on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Further, Doom (1993) and Doom 2 is available on both iOS and Android devices.
It is, of course, the year of Doom as Bethesda and id Software are celebrating 25 years of the legendary FPS franchise. The games aren’t free, however, so you will need to fork out some cash to step into the boots of the Doom Slayer once more and rip demons apart with your over-the-top weapons.
On PS4, for example, the original Doom will set you back R89, while on Nintendo Switch it will set you back R73 and on Android devices, it will cost you R79.99. It is the same price for Doom 2, while Doom 3 is a bit more expensive on consoles. With that being said, this is a great way for many gamers to experience the classic Doom titles for the first time, especially for those who haven’t been gaming for decades. Below, you can learn a bit more about the classic Doom titles.
First released in 1993, DOOM introduced millions of gamers to the fast-paced, white-knuckle, demon-slaying action the franchise is known for. The game also includes the expansion, Episode IV: Thy Flesh Consumed, and the console versions will allow players to duke it out in split-screen 4-player deathmatch, as well as split-screen co-op.
This beloved sequel to the groundbreaking DOOM gave players the brutal Super Shotgun to bear against deadlier demons, and the infamous boss, the Icon of Sin. The re-release of DOOM II includes The Master Levels for DOOM II (20 additional levels), and the console versions will allow users to play split-screen 4-player deathmatch, as well as split-screen co-op.
In this critically acclaimed action-horror re-telling of the original DOOM, players must battle their way through a demon-infested facility before entering the abyss to battle Hell’s mightiest warrior – and put an end to the invasion. DOOM 3 also includes the Resurrection of Evil and The Lost Missions expansion packs.
