Doom, Doom 2 For iOS Get Support For 60fps, Add-Ons, And More
Bethesda has announced new updates for both Doom and Doom II, bringing support for add-ons to iOS. It also means gamers can enjoy full 60fps gaming rather than the previous 35fps they were limited to.
While gamers will surely enjoy the unlocking of buttery smooth 60fps gaming, the addition of the new add-on support is arguably the biggest change here. Bethesda has made some add-ons available already, with John Romero’s SIGI the most notable.
Add-ons can now be downloaded and played from the main menu. We will continue to add content that is a mixture of official DOOM and DOOM 2 add-ons, as well as some of the best community episodes and megawads released for the original DOOM games. We’ve curated the initial list and will be asking you guys for your picks for best community made wads soon!
There are other improvements here, too. Bethesda says that gamers can now enjoy a stretched aspect ratio if they so wish. It stretches the display vertically to better mimic the original 4:3 aspect ratio of the game. There’s also a new ability to select levels and quick load and save are also part of this update.
There are tons more changes to look forward to from this update. Existing owners of Doom and Doom II can download the free updates now, while new gamers will have to pay $4.99 to get in on the action. And it’s well worth it, too.
