Bethesda adds quick saves, 60 FPS, more to Doom, Doom 2

Bethesda has updated Doom and Doom 2, adding add-on support, 60 frames-per-second (FPS) support, quick save functionality and more.

Here’s a detailed look at what’s been added thanks to a Bethesda press release:

  • Add-On Support: Add-ons can be downloaded for free from the main menu for both Doom (1993) and Doom 2. We’re launching with an initial batch of Add-ons, but we’ll be in touch with players soon for suggestions on the best WADs to include in the future.
  • 60 FPS Support: For the first time, Doom (1993) and Doom 2 now have native 60 FPS support on all platforms, up from the original games’ 35 FPS.
  • Quick Saves: While paused in Doom (1993) and Doom 2, simply press R/R1/RB to save your current position. Should players need to load up that spot again during play, they’ll just need to head back to the pause screen and press L/L1/LB.
  • Quality-of-Life Adjustments: Doom (1993) and Doom 2 have been decked out with an arsenal of new options and quality-of-life adjustments, including a Quick Weapon Select feature, improved Level Select function, added Aspect Ratio and Brightness options, a new split-screen HUD and more.

Of note, John Romero’s Sigil is available as one of those aforementioned megaWADs.

Full patch notes are available here.

Both Doom and Doom 2 are available on Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4, Switch, iOS and Android devices.
