STOP THE INVASION
As the lone DOOM Marine, you’ve been activated to do one thing – stop the fierce and powerful demons from overwhelming the Union Aerospace Corporation’s massive research facility on Mars. Take control of impossibly destructive guns and use fast, fluid movement to obliterate countless twisted demons.
A RELENTLESS CAMPAIGN
Experience the full single-player campaign and beat back raging swarms of enemies with an arsenal of futuristic and iconic guns. Get up close and personal with the advanced melee system as you knock down, slash, stomp, crush and blow apart demons in creative and ruthless ways.
LOCK AND LOAD
Test your mettle in the merciless and unforgiving Ultra-Nightmare difficulty mode where death is permanent, or take on Arcade Mode, a streamlined version of the single-player campaign with a classic score attack twist. Race against the clock to compete for the high score, and earn points for defeating enemies, picking up health, armour and score-boosting items.
DOMINATE YOUR OPPONENTS
DOOM’s signature arena-style combat returns with a mix of multiplayer modes, from classics like Team Deathmatch and Domination, to the fast and frenetic Soul Harvest and Freeze Tag modes. Annihilate your enemies online using a blend of skill, powerful weapons, vertical movement, and unique power-ups that can transform you into a demon.
Gain access to all previously-released multiplayer DLC content. Wield deadly weapons, transform into different demons, customise your marine with unique armour, and fight it out on additional multiplayer maps.
Survive the demon onslaught anytime, anywhere in DOOM, an award-winning first-person shooter on Nintendo Switch.

DOOM - Nintendo Switch Announcement Trailer
Doom for Nintendo Switch is a straightforward port that runs well and looks pretty good. Which ultimately, is everything it needed to be. Even though it's a little fuzzy, smashing through a legion of demons with a fun set of weapons and upgrades feels great, and especially when you throw in arcade mode and the much-improved multiplayer arena battles, this is the best mature-themed shooter you can currently get on the Switch.
