Doom 64 Announcement Trailer — Coming March 2020

By Sean Carey,
After 22 years, the first-person shooter, Doom 64 — originally released on the Nintendo 64 — is making its way to modern consoles. Bethesda has released the official announcement trailer.


Doom Eternal was delayed until March next year, with developer id Software saying: "To make sure we're delivering the best experience — for Doom Eternal to live up to our standards of speed and polish — we've made the decision to extend our launch date by a few months." To compensate, all players that pre-order Doom Eternal will get Doom 64 for free.

Doom Eternal and Doom 64 both launch on Xbox One March 20, 2020.
DOOM Eternal (Base Game)
DOOM Eternal (Base Game)

As the DOOM Slayer, you return to find Earth has suffered a demonic invasion. Raze Hell and discover the Slayer’s origins and his enduring mission to rip and tear…until it is done. Experience the ultimate combination of speed and power as you battle your way across dimensions with the next leap in push-forward, first-person combat.

    Cool, though wish they'd fix the classic Doom ports, re-add in the classic online coop/vs and well the local coop is pretty bad.

    Cool! I've never played this one before and it looks like a totally different game!

    Sadly preordering is out of the question for me since Duke Nukem Forever, but I'll certainly pick this up when possible.

    I haven't played it either, but from reading the Wikipedia article it sounds like Doom 64 has much more original content than most Doom ports.

    Doom 64 was a great game. Nice that we get a port after all the years. Will buy it

    I'd love a new single player Quake in the veins of DOOM 2016/Eternal, following Ranger (quakeguy) after the events of the first one. Just imagine the first Quake with modern AAA graphics...

    Swapped it for Elite Dangerous as that's what I live these days. My 360 gamerpic is still Q4 for everyone and Q3 Arena Arcade for friends (the black Q.)
