After the recent announcement that Bethesda’s will be bringing Doom to the Nintendo Switch, Engadget got their hands on some new information on what the Switch version of Doom will be like.
The first big change that will be coming to this version of Doom is that there will be no map editing or ‘SnapMap’. The map editing feature originally allowed players to create custom maps and share them online. Although multiplayer will be a feature in the game, do not expect to edit and share maps when Doom hits on the Nintendo Switch.
Speaking of multiplayer, Bethesda also confirmed that multiplayer won’t be featured on the actual cartridge but must be downloaded separately, this is due to the storage restrictions on all physical copies of the game. Instead, for those who do buy the physical copy of the game, there will be a massive, free update available on day one which will include multiplayer.
If you do decide to download the game digitally from the Nintendo eShop, you will get all available content straight away. Some great news for Switch owners is that the game will ship with all available updates and DLC. This includes the DLC packs: ‘Unto The Evil’, ‘Hell Followed’ and ‘Bloodfall’.
Doom comes to the Nintendo Switch towards the end of this year; release date still to be confirmed.
