Doom fans got a nice surprise on Friday after Bethesda suddenly released Doom, Doom II, and Doom 3 on PS4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch.
The release was officially confirmed later that day at QuakeCon 2019.

Doom (1993) and Doom II can be purchased for $4.99 and features split-screen co-op and PVP as well as all of their previous expansions. Doom 3 will run players $9.99 and comes with the Resurrection of Evil and The Lost Missions expansions.
These games are being reintroduced to modern consoles to celebrate Doom’s 25th anniversary alongside the upcoming Doom Eternal which was shown off at this year’s E3. That game is set to release later this year on November 22.
The games were originally listed, then removed as evidence of a blooper on Nintendo’s part. Shortly thereafter, the games were reintroduced to the eShop. Seems like someone at Nintendo is either a huge fan, or they just jumped the gun before QuakeCon could have their fun.
The games are also available now on PS4 and Xbox One, however, they’re more likely to feel at home on the hand-held hybrid and played on the go.
