Go to Hell in DOOM's Launch Trailer; System Specifications Revealed

It's nearly time. Time to go back to Mars, back to Hell, and take on a horde of demons. That's right, DOOM is a week away, and its launch trailer helps prepare you for what to expect in id Software's long-awaited re-entry to the series. DOOM promises a brutal single player campaign and fast-paced multiplayer action, but hopefully it's far faster than the recent beta. That didn't really feel like DOOM, not just in its speed, but in the fact you couldn't pick up weapons or tweak any settings. About a week after the beta ended, id Software made a post on Bethesda.net detailing every graphical option we can modify, which is apparently all of them, and how there's an uncapped framerate and 21:9 monitor support. It also apparently has another mode that's more like classic DOOM multiplayer, but we'll just have to see when the game arrives next week.

If you're curious what kind of system you need to run DOOM, well, you're in luck, as id Software have revealed those details. Check them out below.

Minimum:

  • Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit versions); Intel Core i5-2400/AMD FX-8320 or better;
  • 8 GB RAM; 55 GB free HDD space; NVIDIA GTX 670 2GB/AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB or better
  • Contains a single disc. Download of additional files from Steam (total amount 45 GB) is required to run the game.
  • Requires Steam activation and broadband internet connection for Multiplayer and SnapMap.

Recommended:

  • Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit versions); Intel Core i7-3770/AMD FX-8350 or better;
  • 8 GB RAM; 55 GB free HDD space; NVIDIA GTX 970 4GB/AMD Radeon R9 290 4GB or better
  • Contains a single disc. Download of additional files from Steam (total amount 45 GB) is required to run the game.
  • Requires Steam activation and broadband internet connection for Multiplayer and SnapMap.

All in all, not too bad, except for the hard drive size and a fairly recent system. It's a big download even if you buy the disc copy, so be sure to factor that in. Luckily, pre-loading begins on Steam on May 11 for those getting the digital copy, while physical copies have to wait. Pre-loading on the PS4 begins on May 11, as well, while XBO pre-loading is available right now. At least 50GB of space is required to begin the download on either console. 

DOOM is back, at least from the single player side of things, if the launch trailer and recent single player stream is anything to go by. It's almost time to Fight Like Hell once again, with high-powered guns, huge demons, and incredibly fast gameplay awaiting us. DOOM arrives on Friday, May 13, for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
