“When DOOM launched, id Software focused on mixing cutting-edge graphics with relentless, fast-paced gameplay for users on all platforms. Thanks to a brand-new game update arriving on March 29, id is pushing the game’s graphics even further with the release of a new 4K resolution update. At long last, you’ll be able to witness the power of the DOOM Slayer in stunning 4K on both PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X platforms.

The DOOM franchise is iconic ever since it made its first debut back in 1993. Since then, it has continued to be cult classic among gamers everywhere. Now that the latest title is out, even for the Nintendo Switch, it’s time for console players to enjoy that which their PC brethren have been enjoying all along: 4K. If only we could get another game announcement …
