Available only as a digital download – no physical edition is being produced or planned – the game will take up 18.8GB of storage space on Switch. It will be available on the eShop from midnight Eastern Time.This release is essentially the same version as released on PC and console earlier this year, including the 2v1 Battlemode multiplayer suite as well as the main single player campaign. While those remain unchanged, the Switch version does support gyroscopic motion controls.
DLC for Doom Eternal – The Ancients Gods: Part 1 – is already available on PC and console, but will arrive later on Switch.
Early purchasers up to December 22 will get a digital download code for Doom 64 and the ‘Rip & Tear’ content pack, which contains skins and a remixed version of the Cultist Base Master campaign level.
