Today, we celebrate three decades of DOOM! Since 1993, id Software’s Hell-razing franchise sits firmly as not just a cornerstone of FPS excellence, but as one of gaming’s most influential franchises.

And we have YOU to thank! From late nights of Deathmatch and building WADs to following the series’ evolution across generations of hardware, the passion of the DOOM community keeps the franchise going as strong as the Slayer himself.


Join us later today, December 11, at 3:00pm ET on the official Bethesda Twitch channel for a Slayers Club Live stream! id Software’s own Game Director Hugo Martin and Executive Producer Marty Stratton will be celebrating 30 years of the DOOM franchise with a bevy of primo giveaways! 

Tune into the stream for a chance to win from a Super Gore Nest-sized pile of giveaways, including a DOOM-themed Noblechairs HERO Edition gaming chair, a statue, figurines, collectibles, peripherals and more! PLUS, the world premiere of a precious and unexpected piece of merchandise that's been missing from every DOOM fan's collection.
