Switch Announcement Trailer of DOOM and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.
This one was unexpected. Good for those that only own a Switch ☺
This was a nice surprise to see. ;)
Switch is for real, feel it's going to be the best Nintendo platform since the SNES.
I mean, cool for anyone who doesn't own it already on something else, but it being portable is not enough for me to buy it again.
@NewMonday, I mean, it's already looking like it will get better third party support than the Wii U. On top of that in the first nine months alone it's got Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Fire Emblem Warriors, Snipperclips, Mario + Rabbids, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms, Splatoon 2, Pokken Tournament Deluxe, plus an exclusive Bomberman and some great exclusive indie games. It's already got one of the best first year line-ups of any game console and there's some big games already confirmed, such as Fire Emblem, No More Heroes, Pokemon, Pikmin 4, and Metroid Prime 4. Nintendo's really turned it around this gen.
My family owns a PS4 and I'll still be getting this for Switch instead. It's good no matter which way one spins it, honestly; it's not the first time I've seen people asking for one of these two games. The multiplayer of Doom has me particularly interested; I'm hoping Nintendo sorts out their in-game chat problems before it drops.
Doom is an excellent game, definitely a worthwhile purchase.
Nintendo + Multiplayer....yeah I do not see the in game chat being sorted. They blew two generations and couldn't fix the issue. Splatoon is a great game and their solution there was no solution.
@Morgan I know. I don't like the chat solution of Splatoon either so I'm not holding my breath for chat in Doom. But who knows? The dev behind Doom might step in and make it happen. Also, while it doesn't make it a better solution than regular chat by any stretch, the phone option recently got an update so you can run it while other apps are going, or while your phone is in sleep mode, so that's something I guess...
Whatever suits you. I am happy with the PlayStation version of Doom and Wolfenstein.
I own all of them and I'm switch version all the way too
Or for those that want AAA FPS games on the go!!
Good for gamers period. I have a PS4, but I'm getting the Switch versions.
Are you mainly a portable gamer?
He must be. Otherwise there is no reason for someone to opt for a Switch version over a PS4 version.
@Unreal Not true. If you don't really care about the graphics, then there's no real reason for someone to opt for the PS4 version over the Switch version, even if you only ever play it docked.[barring issues with chat in multi, that is] Either one is just as fine a choice as the other, it just depends on how you look at it.
Actually not really (I play portably 30% of the time). For those moments where I need to take my gaming on the go, the switch is perfect. Also, when the TV isn't free I can play portably. Honestly, I just prefer gaming on the Switch. I don't care much about graphics, and the Switch has made gaming fun for me and my friends again. Before you ask, no I'm not a Nintendo fanboy. I've skipped several of their consoles because I didn't like their approach.
I don't ONLY own a Switch and it was a great announcement for me. Portable DOOM along with Home Console DOOM is a lot more attractive than just HOME console DOOM.
I have allready finished doom on pc but i may actually enjoy the switch version more. Gameplay gonna be more fun imho and i can play them anywhere.
I own a PS4 as well. I loved The New Order. But I'll be getting the Switch version of Wolfie Ii, if the gameplay isn't compromised. Portability is a big bonus for me.
or for those who want options
Not really, people could want this just for the portable availability.
Bethesda is showing Nintendo even more love
DOOM 2016 is one of my fav games this gen, will definitely double dip.
same here... the idea of being able to play it on the go is very attractive..
Playing Doom on the go with a small screen and worse graphics seems like an exercise in frustration, but more power to you.
This is good and unexpected. I'm curious on how inferior the graphics will look compared to its more powerful competitors.
You can see the graphics in the trailer.
Only for Doom and it looks great without very noticable differences from the other platforms at first glance. Seeing the product released and compared to the other platforms is a different case than seeing a few seconds clip. But the Switch seems to produce really great graphics so far compared to what others here on N4G were anticipating if third party games were to release on switch.
@stupidusername the Switch may be underpowered but the switch version of Doom doesn't look bad compare to the PS4 version
Excellent, salt for my fries. Keep it coming.
What salt? It's a fact that ps4 and xbox one are capable of producing better graphics, and I''m wondering how noticable that difference in power will be. So far Doom on Switch looks awesome, and the difference is far far less than a lot of people were anticipating. I've not played it yet so I'm tempted to buy the Switch version as I love having my games handeld.
@stupidusername - I think it's because your original statement made it seem like the Switch version will look ugly. From what we saw it looks solid. Obviously the graphics will be compromised in handheld mode since it can only do 720p. But on a screen that size you wouldn't even notice the extra detail. We don't expect the Switch version to match the PS4/XB1 versions toe-to-toe. The sheer fact that the game is possible without doing massive downgrading shows that the Switch isn't as bad as we thought.
@Neonridr - It would probably look better if I didn´t use the word "inferior". At the same time I think many are overly defensive and tend to jump the gun.
Thought the same. From what we saw of Doom and what we've seen from Fifa 18 it seems that the Switch versions will be downgraded quite a bit, but that is fully expected. I guess the question will be id u want the game handeld or with better graphics if u own several consoles.
from what we saw of Doom? What makes you think that it's downgraded quite a bit? They even showed some comparison shots (in another article) and literally the only thing was less depth of field and slighly lower resolution textures. But the game still looked and felt like Doom.
N4G: The Switch won't have and can't run AAA games! Bethesda: we'll release Doom and Wolfenstein 2 on the Switch. N4G: Downgrade!!!!1!!!!1!!!! Lmao. It looks like these N4G "expert" are wrong again.
They got exposed. Like they still won't learn. Here the list: 1. Switch is going to be dead on arrival 2. Switch won't get major third party 3. Just a bunch of ports and wii u ports 4. Switch owners are buying third party games, a lot of third party and indie games are selling better on Switch that all other system. 5. They claim Switch owners are just thirsty 6. They also claim Switch games are selling because not much to choose from 7. Now Switch get about almost a dozen AAA Third Party Western game. 8. They backtrack and say oh it's a downgrade after claiming it wouldn't be able to run on it the Switch
Why do I get compared to N4G's Nintendo haters by just wondering how Switch will fare graphics wise? I got a Switch myself and I'm curious to see how the third party games hold up as I've also got a PS4 to buy third party games for. I thought about buying Fifa18 on Switch but the Switch version doesn't have the story mode and the graphics were reduced significantly. I'm hoping future third party games like Doom and Wolfenstein 2 on Switch will have the same content as it does on other platforms and that the graphics won't be downgraded too much.
@stupidusername - to be honest, who expects a "story" mode in a sports game? Such a strange thing to have. I mean imagine just being able to pop out your switch while you are sitting at a cafe, waiting for a bus, doing whatever you might do during the day, and play a quick game? I get that the PS4 and XB1 versions have frostbite and ooooohs and aaaaaahs pour from the skies. But when is a sports game about 4K graphics or whatever? It's not like the Switch version will look ugly in any way, shape or form.
Pretfy reasonable question, funny how everyone gets triggered by the word inferior. I'm wondering the same thing, but it will still probably look good enough to be worth owning.
inferior implies negativity. You could say different, or modified.
No need to be that pc about a video game lol
I've not played doom yet or wolfenstein so this is great. Doom has decent online multilayer mode as well? Which is good for the Switch! Bethesda proving you can get current generation games on Switch with a bit of love and effort!!!
I played online a few times. It's pretty cool.
I was thinking Switch Needs a gritty mature online FPS and this is Perfect one!!! Activision can shove COD up their a$$!!! watch them come crawling with a COD game soon though when the installed Base grows lol.
Personally havent played the online for Doom (not my thing) but the single player alone is extremely good so I'd recommend it for that alone.
I played the demo on my XB1 an it blew me away just haven't bought it yet. I'll wait for the Switch version. The idea of dominating people in Starbucks online is getting better by the minute!!
I wish all remakes were as good as doom, it is a fantastic game. Personally I will not double dip as I own it on pc, but if not it would be a day 1 purchase.
I too own it for PC, but I'm willing to re-buy it if the price is right. $39.99 should do the trick.
Yeah Bethesda has pretty much put the last nail in the coffin on the argument that the Switch is too weak to play ps4 and xbox level games. Drop a games resolution to 720 and it becomes much more managable, and 720 looks amazing on a 7in screen
I'd rather play a fast paced FPS like Doom on a 65 inch screen but that's just me.
@nyctophilia13 So dock the bitch and take a seat.
Totally unexpected, can't wait to get both!
Wolfenstein 2 is gonna be awesome
Yeah I really didn't expect an upcoming game on that level to be announced, pretty dope.
Cool for switch owners. Doom looks to be fairly downgraded though... Maybe just the video.
Of course, it is downgraded but still impressive this is on a portable device. Thanks to Switch supporting Vulkan. I've been saying it a while API matters and Switch has a fantastic API.
Substantially downgraded. The games aren't particularly demanding to begin with either.
I know you must have had a hard time typing that without your fingers burning. First of all just from the vid I'm not seeing a "significant" downgrade, I don't think you know what that word means. Doom is often heralded as a visual masterpiece nor sure where your getting that their not "demanding", the salt is getting crazy at this point.
lol.. now Doom and Wolfenstein aren't demanding... jesus do you guys get tired from dragging the chains along?
It's not a huge downgrade. There is some side by side comparisons. The Switch has a little less texture detail, more shallow depth of field and the lighting isn;t as good but it still looks good. And LOL Doom has some of the best visuals this gen ESP on AMD systems.
Here's the deal. Doom REALLY shines because of the silky 60fps along with the graphics/artstyle. Sitting still, it's not super impressive EXCEPT when you start zooming in and EVERTHING keeps insane detail close up. Both of these aspects will be compromised on switch.
Oooooooh damn...two big third party titles coming to Switch.
OH DAMN DOOM ON THE GOOOOOOOOOOO, Im actually cool with this :)
This is awesome news for Nintendo fans. More great AAA games making it over to the Switch.
Great news for Switch owners. Doom is my personal favorite FPS ever made. It's truly in a league of it's own. Gameplay, presentation, soundtrack, level design, snapmap, high speed combat & awesome enemies make Doom my 2016 GOTY. Really hope Bethesda puts out a high quality port & Switch owners reciprocate with solid sales numbers. Same goes for Wolfenstein 2, haven't played it yet obviously but after New Order & The Old Blood I expect nothing but awesomeness! Don't f**k this up Bethesda! And if the ports are great Switch owners please show some love to some kick ass 3rd party software.
The Switch is Dooooomed!!!!
