'Doom Eternal' (ALL) For Nintendo Switch Goes Digital Only

by Adam Pavlacka on Nov. 19, 2020 @ 8:18 p.m. PST

It's Hell on Earth and only one person can repel the demonic invasion. The DOOM Slayer is back to unleash his fury upon the legions of Hell with a host of powerful new abilities, weapons and fearsome demons to put them to work on.

Experience the ultimate combination of speed and power as you rip-and-tear your way across dimensions with the next leap in push-forward, first-person combat.  As the DOOM Slayer, return to take your vengeance against the forces of Hell.

Powered by idTech 7 and set to an all-new pulse-pounding soundtrack composed by Mick Gordon, DOOM Eternal puts you in control of the unstoppable DOOM Slayer as you blow apart new and classic demons with powerful weapons in unbelievable and never-before-seen worlds.

Earlier today we received reports that GameStop was calling customers who had pre-ordered Doom Eternal on the Nintendo Switch and informing them that pre-orders were cancelled. The physical version of Doom Eternal for Switch was also removed from Amazon and Best Buy listings.

We reached out to Bethesda who confirmed that the physical version of Doom Eternal for the Switch has been removed from the release calendar. The digital version is still on track for release.

"While DOOM Eternal is 100% on track for an imminent digital-only release on Nintendo Switch, the absence of a physical release at retail resulted in cancelled pre-orders. Affected customers will receive full refunds and should contact their preferred retailer for more information. Stay tuned for much more information coming later this month," said the Bethesda spokesperson.

Key Features: 

  • Slayer 2.0: Unleash the overwhelming power of the DOOM Slayer. With updated armor and an arsenal of new and improved equipment, including a shoulder-mounted cannon with flamethrower, extendable blade, and a new dash ability, you’re faster and deadlier than ever. Destroy every demon in your path with an upgraded array of guns and mods, including the Super Shotgun’s new Meat Hook attachment to pull yourself point blank with the faces of hell. 
  • Rip More, Tear More: Obliterate more demons than ever before, each with their own attacks and abilities. Fan-favorite classics such as the Pain Elemental, Archvile, and Arachnotron make their return, while a horde of totally-new demons join the roster including the DOOM Hunter and corrupted Marauders.  DOOM Eternal’s “destructible demons” system takes your power fantasy to new levels by ensuring that every trigger pull has never felt better.
  • All-new Invasion: As the Slayer, allow real players to invade your campaign as demons for a dramatic and unpredictable twist anytime you’re playing the campaign. Or join the ranks of the damned yourself as you become a demon and invade a friend or other player’s campaign.  Invade others either by yourself or with another player, as part of a hunting party, to give the Slayer a true taste of Hell.
  • We’re Not on Mars Anymore: Rip and tear across epic, never-before-seen worlds. Witness the tumbling skyscrapers of Hell on Earth; battle through an invasion of the mammoth BFG 10,000 on Phobos; and discover the ancient secrets of the DOOM universe. With idTech7, every environment is brought to life in unprecedented detail.

Doom Eternal is currently available for Xbox One, PS4, PC, with a Nintendo Switch to follow at a later date as well as Xbox Series X and PS5 as a free upgrade for current-gen owners when those versions are available.
