Finally here: Doom Eternal from Bethesda. Fans have to wait a long time and even have to accept a postponement, now the latest offshoot from the popular first-person shooter series is officially available. Since March 20th, players have been shooting their way through hordes of demons in a rush - and they seem to be doing it en masse. The current Steam Charts show how successful Doom Eternal has started: Over 100.000 players simultaneously cavorted in the virtual worlds at peak times. 

"Finally, Bethesda!" Fans must have thought when Doom Eternal was released on March 20th. After the release date was postponed by several months to 2020, players could hardly wait to immerse themselves in the visually pretty world.

Doom Eternal: Version for Nintendo Switch follows

The successor to the Doom reboot from 2016 has been well received by gamers so far. Doom Eternal's player numbers speak for themselves: with up to just over 100.000 fans playing at the same time on Steam, the successor clearly overtakes its predecessor.

Even if the statistics of the "simultaneously active players" do not provide any direct information about the sales, the signal is clear: Doom Eternal starts extremely successfully.

Not without reason: the first person shooter looks excellent - but not outstanding - offers a lot of content and a terrific thunderstorm of effects. Non-stop action was the formula for success of the 2016 reboot; Doom Eternal starts there and basically offers a similar concept, but sometimes looks overloaded. There is plenty of action, but not only - and that is exactly the biggest difference to the predecessor. 

The slightly different orientation is partly a matter of taste, but that doesn't make the successor Doom Eternal significantly worse. It cracks every second - and that pushes the entertainment factor enormously. The "service" has also improved: visual aids support the player to slide through demon crowds like a warm knife through butter.

In any case, the flow of the game is there, the pace is high. The "Doomguy" is a kind of Sonic on Speed. The "Glory Kill" finishers are particularly impressive when opponents are dismantled into their individual parts, or better yet, sawed up. Overall, thanks in part to a multitude of macro-level decisions, Doom Eternal doesn't present itself as a dull shooting orgy at all, even if it is one in the end.

Doom Eternal is certainly one of the game highlights of 2020 despite minor weaknesses. The wait was definitely worth it for fans. Doom Eternal is available for PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4 at Google Stadia. For Nintendo Switch, Bethesda's first-person shooter will be released later this year.
