Bethesda is happy to announce that Doom will be coming out for Nintendo Switch on 10 November.

In the developer video released today, creative director Hugo Martin and executive producer Marty Stratton discuss the many features that players will experience in Doom on Nintendo Switch.

These features include a singleplayer campaign, an Arcade Mode and various multiplayer modes. The two also go into further depth about working with developer Panic Button to ensure Doom on Nintendo Switch feels "as fast, brutal, and true to the experience gamers have loved on other platforms" says the press release.

The singleplayer campaign will contain all the difficulty modes your black heart desires. Please hold your questions until the end of the presentation, thank you. Yes, the Ultra Nightmare Mode will be included, you bunch of masochists. The Ultra Nightmare Mode lets you play the game "using only one life" says the game's executive producer Marty Stratton.

You'll be able to re-play all the levels using all the upgraded weapons in the Arcade Mode.

Doom is not the first title that pops into your head when someone asks about a narrative heavy game but its story can be explored by those who are interested. If you want to shoot some demon's face off and not worry about its biography that's fine too.

The multiplayer will include 12 modes and all the DLC content. There's Team Death Match, some capture modes and a mode where you play a version of a twisted handball match and your ball is someone's eye(ball). Everything your mother always told you not to do. There are around 18 maps for you to run around in.

Doom was developed for the Switch by id Software in conjunction with Panic Button, which was founded in 2007 by industry veterans. Panic Button are registered developers for Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony, Apple, and Android. Check out the video above this article for more info. As far as the frame rate goes, they say you'll be getting 30 FPS.
