Players will be able to enjoy the game’s single player campaign or jump into the online BATTLEMODE. Here, players can engage in 2v1 battles; one Slayer fights against two of their friends who have taken on the role of demons. See who can come out on top in a best-of-five round match.

DOOM Eternal‘s Switch port has been handled by Panic Button, the team responsible for bringing other Bethesda titles to the console. Panic Button also ported 2016’s DOOM, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Wolfenstein: Youngblood to Switch, so you know it’s been in good hands.
