Doom will be 1080p 60FPS on console

When it comes to fast, twitch-based shooter, aiming for that sweet 60FPS doesn’t become a luxury, it becomes a requirement. Simply put, a shooter that depends on reflexes above anything else doesn’t feel right at anything lower, which is why franchises such as Call of Duty prioritised this above all else years ago. DOOM is now joining those ranks.

And it makes sense. DOOM is known for its franticly fast action, even in the lull it experienced with DOOM 3 and its more methodically slow pace. With iD Software soft rebooting the franchise that kicked off all other shooter franchises, they’ve gone back to what made DOOM the shooter no one could forget about. And that’s all about stringing together lightning fast, split-second shots with borderline uncontrollable movement speeds.

It’s simply not possible at anything lower than 60FPS to achieve that exhilarating sensation, which is why news of DOOM running at not only 60FPS, but 1080p across both consoles is just music to my ears. No arguments over which is the better version (that comes later when all the concessions to make this possible bubble to the surface), just DOOM running at its best on the hardware of your choice. The way it’s meant to be played.

Of course that’s just one of the many new features that DOOM will ship with in May. Along with the idTech 6 powering it, DOOM will introduce features like SnapMap, which will allow players on all platforms to create and share custom maps, games modes and more for anyone to enjoy. Along with that comes an array of multiplayer modes, many multiplayer weapons we haven’t even seen yet and the bloody brutality that they’re all bound to inflict on your foes.

You can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Sandy not good enough? Call me xXx_J0k3R_360degreeN0Sc0pe_xXx. Also, Geoff’s a bastard.

    Euw. I don’t want a “smooth expeRince”.

    • Commander Admiral Chief

      Then don’t shave him, sheesh

      • Pariah

        I need mind bleach now. Thanks.

        XD

        • Commander Admiral Chief

          Especially if you’ve seen Rince…

          • Pariah

            I have. XD

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            Right, carry on then

            😀

    • Hammersteyn

      Hahaha

    • Captain JJ the “saviour”

      Is it ever smooth?

  • Pieter Kruger

    WOW, is it true that you’ll be getting original Doom & Doom 2 free with Xbox One version? In that case BRING IT! ????????????

    • Hammersteyn

      It’s already free on PC

      • Pieter Kruger

        Nice, but you know I prefer my console over my PC, this might just be my next multiplayer shooter….????

        • Pariah

          In all honesty, I think this is everyone’s next multiplayer shooter. Or at least, it should be. Because this is the internet and we get to force our own opinions on everyone else.

          At least, that’s what’s supposed to happen.

          Right?

          Right?

  • Commander Admiral Chief
  • Pariah

    The original Doom had auto-aim, so you could say that the console Doom is going to be the most authentic experience of them all too.

    • Commander Admiral Chief

      xD

    • Commander Admiral Chief

      Actually, just vertical auto-aim

      • Pariah

        That’s a valid point. So in a nutshell, console gamers are still peasants?

        • Commander Admiral Chief

          😀

  • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

    Saying that you are pretty excited about DOOM, is like saying you can’t wait to taste how lightly dabbed in chilli sauce your next FIERY FLAMED BURGER FROM HELL WITH FRESH HABANERO CHILLIS should be, go on, say it…

    • Pariah

      Eh, I’m maybe a little excited about Doom. Can’t be sure though, will have to wait for reviews.

      😀

  • oVg

    A better frame rate than the $500 million Destiny? SOLD

  • oVg

    The last game that I played in 1080p/60fps is this beauty. No other photo realism comes close. ALSO, for the haters, it has more gameplay than Until Dawn. Cant wait to see what Heavy Rain looks and runs like.

    • oVg

      Not bad for a PS3 game

      • oVg

        This was my favourite scene.

  • Viking Of Science

    Finally, A game that may be properly optimized for Consoles.

    Hopefully if enough people play it, it’ll squash that whole “30fps is better for some games” fallacy.

    • Pieter Kruger

      “Cinematic Look” ROFL!

  • Ryanza

    id Tech 6!

    didn’t Rage have 60fps on older consoles. Can’t remember what resolution it played at.

    id Tech 5 was like super streaming for consoles to get that 60fps. Not surprised to hear Doom will be 60fps and 1080p

  • Jan Prins

    Doom. If this is not one of the top rated games in Church history, then I do not want to live on this planet any more.

    • Randy

      The most christian game this side of beezlebubs butthole (icon of sin)

  • Randy

    Doom isnt joining the 60fps ranks, it started it. I play call of duty, but people need stops sucking its dick.
