The annual QuakeCon event hosted in Dallas, Texas kicked off this weekend and publisher Bethesda already has a treat for those who are fans of the Doom series. With the succeeding Doom Eternal dropping this coming November, players who might have been behind on the original titles that forged the series’ notoriety can now enjoy them on the current wave of consoles.
During the event’s livestreamed presentation, Bethesda shared that Doom, Doom II, and Doom 3 will all be heading Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Android, iOS, and Nintendo Switch. Developer Panic Button, known for their ports of Doom (2016) and Wolfenstein: The New Colossus for Switch, have returned to bring the original three to modern hardware.
The listed games have gone live following the announcement with the first two titles listed at $4.99, and the third installment listed for $3.99. Bethesda explains that players will have to log into their Bethesda account to access the game after purchasing the respected title. However, following the announcement fans sprinted to purchasing the new titles and were instantly faced with problems when attempting to enter in their account information.
The situation began to be a real issue as players were unable to play the game they purchased as long as they cannot enter in their Bethesda account. In response to the problem, Bethesda announced that they are working on resolving the issue, clarifying that the log in for the Slayers Club should be optional and not restricting users from playing the titles.
Update on our new classic DOOM releases:
The BethesdaNet login requirement was included for the Slayers Club, to reward members for playing the classic DOOM games.
The login should be optional, and we are working on changing the requirement to optional now.
