We’re excited to announce a new update deploying now for our re-releases of DOOM (1993) and DOOM II, adding a host of new features on all platforms. Just a few of these goodies include 60 FPS support, Quick Save functionality and curated Add-ons. That’s right, we’re adding MEGAWADS!
With this update, you can now download and play additional game content for both DOOM (1993) and DOOM II! Add-on content includes a curated list of community-made episodes and megawads for DOOM and DOOM II, including SIGIL!
Add-ons can be downloaded free from the main menu for both DOOM and DOOM II. We’re launching with an initial batch of Add-ons, but we’ll be in touch with all you Slayers soon for suggestions on the best WADs to include in the future! For more deets, check out our Add-ons FAQ here.
60 FPS Support
For the first time, DOOM (1993) and DOOM II now have native 60 FPS support on all platforms, up from the original games’ 35 FPS. Enjoy that silky-smooth framerate and run circles around those Barons!
We’re adding the ultimate tool for any Marine practicing speedruns or surviving DOOM’s Nightmare! difficulty: Quick Saves. While paused in DOOM or DOOM II, simply press R/R1/RB to save your current position. Should you need to load up that spot again during play, just head back to the pause screen and press L/L1/LB!
And so much more!
That’s not all! The re-releases of DOOM (1993) and DOOM II have been decked out with an arsenal of new options and quality-of-life adjustments, including a Quick Weapon Select feature, improved Level Select function, added Aspect Ratio and Brightness options, a new split-screen HUD and more!
