Earlier this week, Bethesda announced that they would be bringing the original Doom trilogy to modern day consoles. The trilogy includes the original Doom (1993), Doom II, and Doom 3. Well, it seems there is more classic Doom on the way. The Pan European Game Information Rating (PEGI) recently leaked PC and PS4 ratings for Doom 64.
The rating lists the game for PS4 and PC but surprisingly not for the Xbox or Nintendo Switch. Seeing as the leak comes from PEGI, it may be valid. The group also does not rate games long before they are released, which suggests that the port for the game is coming soon.
If you are unfamiliar with Doom 64, it was released for the Nintendo 64 all the way back in 1997, and was produced by Midway Games. The title is regarded as the sequel to Doom II as it takes place after the events of that game. It received mediocre reviews and didn’t sell well, but it has grown on some fans over the years.
Since there is some nostalgia for the game, there’s no reason that Bethesda wouldn’t cash in on a re-release. They could even package the port with the upcoming Doom Eternal. Let’s hope that this port won’t need a Bethesda account. There was recent controversy concerning the ports of the old Doom games where Bethesda forced players to login with a Bethesda account to play the titles. The publisher has said that they will be patching out that feature soon.
It seems that people can’t get enough of Doom and Bethesda will keep feeding it to players. As for fans of the newer Doom titles, they won’t have to wait long for a new title as Doom Eternal launches on 22 November for PS4, Xbox One, Stadia, and Nintendo Switch.
