DOOM, DOOM II, and DOOM 3 are Back

Posted on July 27, 2019 by Paul Thurrott in Android, Games, iOS, Xbox One with 13 Comments

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the first DOOM, Bethesda Game Studios has re-released DOOM, DOOM II, and DOOM 3 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. The first two DOOM games have also been re-released on Android, and iOS.

“Whether you’re breaking in the [DOOM Guy’s] boots for the first time or a longtime veteran looking for a nostalgia overload, there’s no better time to experience DOOM’s legacy and prepare for the next generation of pure demon-slaying action when DOOM Eternal launches November 22,” Bethesda notes in a brief announcement about the re-releases.

(As a long-time DOOM fan, I also don’t appreciate the history rewriting in which “the DOOM Guy” has been retroactively renamed to “the Marine.” It’s about as offensive as claiming that the most recent DOOM game is in any way a fitting modernization to this beloved classic.)

The good news? DOOM and DOOM II are just $5 apiece and DOOM 3 is $10, regardless of platform. Here are the most relevant links:
