Bethesda have today released another update for id Software's brutal shooter Doom Eternal. The update is a minor one, introducing Render Modes which add cinematic, old-school and retro console visual effects.

Doom Eternal just received another update on all platforms. This time, it's a minor one but with a neat addition named Render Modes. Those who played the first Doom game will probably remember this feature, which allows players to choose from several render modes and play the game in black and white, retro console, classic and other graphic modes.

The update includes black and white, dots, retro console, retro handheld (Gameboy) and VHS render modes to name a few. You can check out some gameplay with these modes applied over the game in the trailer above. Our favourite would have to be classic mode, which applies pixelated graphics, making Doom Eternal look like a game from the early '90s.

PC players would probably say that they already have a similar third-party feature available named ReShade, which can be used to drastically change the look of the game but console players are the ones that will certainly appreciate this update the most. 

All in all, it's a nice little addition to Doom Eternal, which recently revealed a huge stats breakdown, with all sorts of crazy numbers. You can check it out below:

Doom Eternal is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Google Stadia.
