The new generation of consoles is still waiting for the big releases that will mark its first stage, but in what happens, the connection with the previous generation lends itself to some of its most important games having a version with visual and performance improvements. . Obviously, DOOM Eternal is one of those titles and although it is not yet known when the update will arrive for PS5 and Xbox Series X, there is much to get excited about.
ID SOFTWARE ALREADY THINKS ABOUT DOOM ETERNAL FOR THE NEXT-GEN
During an interview with Polygon , id Software Executive Producer Marty Stratton discussed DOOM Eternal coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X, which will happen with an update that, sadly, has no release date yet. However, there are things to celebrate and that is that id Software is already working on the update after launching Doom Eternal: The Ancient Gods – Part Two , and now the priority is to do its magic with Sony and Microsoft consoles.
According to Stratton, by having the hardware in hand, the development team is already thinking about what they can do with it: “Once we have the hardware in hand, it is really a kind of back and forth between the Tech team and creative team. Ray tracing is a great example. What does it mean for the visual style of the game? Is it going to change? How do we want it to change? It ranges from theoretical conversations and laying the groundwork and groundwork down to the actual decisions about how things look, as you play and make sure it still fits what the game really needs, what the players expect from the game, giving them options. “
In that sense, the id Software directive showed that the version of DOOM Eternal for PS5 and Xbox Series X will have various performance options, visual appearance and even controls to suit the needs of the players and bring them closer to what can be a PC experience.
DOOM Eternal is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
