DOOM Eternal was recently announced for the Nintendo Switch which certainly pleased a lot of fans who were uncertain whether the game would arrive on the system. Polygon caught up with ID Software’s Marty Stratton and Hugo Martin who reconfirmed that DOOM Eternal will feature a traditional multiplayer mode.
“The Invasion stuff is just kind of one of the ways that we’re going to make the Doom experience social,” Doom Eternal game director Marty Stratton told Polygon in an interview at QuakeCon today. “But we’re not really going deep into that. We are working on a PvP component. It is new. It’s not an extension of what we did last time. So it’s new. It is something we’re developing internally, which we didn’t do last time. I think players are gonna really enjoy it.”
“It’s very Doom,” creative director Hugo Martin added. “It’s very good.”
