Doom Eternal delayed until 2020 and you can’t play as a demon at launch
09 October, 2019, 17:56
As such, anticipation was high for Eternal's impending launch next month, which id Software understood when acknowledging that many fans will be "disappointed" by news of the delay. Sad news, but if delaying the title by a few months means a better game, the wait is worth it.
Invasion Mode, which lets you enter another player's game as a playable demon, will be added to Doom Eternal shortly after launch.
A sequel to the 2016 first-person shooter reboot of the Doom series, Doom Eternal shifts the action from Earth to Mars, just like Doom II: Hell on Earth.
There will be plenty of enemies and weapons at the Doom Slayer's disposal, including a Meat Hook accessory for the Super Shotgun-it slingshots the player towards and enemy and also functions as a grappling hook for navigating the environment.
Doom Eternal won't be hitting its November 22 release date, unfortunately. The Nintendo Swich version does not yet have a release date.
One of the most anticipated games of 2019 will now have to be one of the most anticipated games of 2020.
Doom Eternal will now be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia on March 20, 2020. Id Software will also throw in the DOOM 64 re-release as a pre-order bonus for DOOM Eternal on all platforms.
