Doom Eternal on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Linux, Mac and Linux, PS4 Pro and PSVR coming in 2018
Doom Eternal is the latest in a long line of high-profile games coming to consoles, but the title has never made the jump to PC or Linux, with Microsoft’s new hardware-accelerated title coming later in 2018.
Devolver Digital, publisher of the classic PC shooter Doom and the original Doom 3, is partnering with developer Red Barrels to bring the title to consoles in 2018, with the PC version coming at a later date.
“This is a great opportunity for Devolver Digital to create a console exclusive title for Doom,” said Scott Green, VP of marketing and digital distribution for Red Barrel.
“We look forward to releasing Doom on consoles in the very near future, and we are very excited to get this title to the fans who are waiting for this to come to PC.”
Developers Red Barrel and Devolver will be responsible for the Doom-inspired visuals, audio and gameplay, with Red Barrel managing the story, art direction and audio production.
Doom Eternal will be playable on consoles with both Doom 2 and Doom 3’s engine, meaning that the game will be able to run on all platforms, including Xbox One and PC.
Devolver is currently developing a PC port of the title, and will likely make the game available for purchase once the title is fully playable.
Doom Forever will come to the PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation VR and Xbox One in 2018 along with the PS4 and Xbox 360 versions.
