Doom Eternal current-gen upgrade now available, a bit whack on PS5

It's time to frag at 60FPS with ray-tracing.

The Doom Eternal current-gen upgrade is now available for PS5 and Xbox Series S & X, Bethesda has announced. While it’s smooth sailing for Xbox One players moving to Xbox Series S & X, players moving from PS4 to PS5 will have it tough.

Anyone who owns an Xbox One or PS4 version of the game will automatically be entitled to the free Xbox Series or PS5 version, but Bethesda has been quick to point out that PS4 game progression cannot carry over onto PS5.

“While online progression is preserved between PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles via the user’s Bethesda.net account, Doom Eternal campaign save data will not transfer between consoles,” Bethesda stated.

Save progress between Xbox One and Xbox Series S & X is fine, handled through Smart Delivery.

If you can live with replaying the campaign again on PS5, you’ll be able to take advantage of a variety of graphics modes. We’ve listed them all below alongside options for Xbox Series S & X.

Xbox Series S

  • Performance Mode running at 1080p/120 FPS (HDR 10, Variable Refresh Rate, Variable Rate Shading available)
  • Balanced Mode running at 1440p/60 FPS

Xbox Series X

  • Ray Tracing Mode running at 1800p/60 FPS (HDR 10, Variable Refresh Rate, Variable Rate Shading available)
  • Performance Mode running at 1800p/120 FPS (HDR 10, Variable Refresh Rate, Variable Rate Shading available)
  • Balanced Mode running at 4K/60 FPS (HDR 10, Variable Refresh Rate, Variable Rate Shading available)

PlayStation 5

  • Ray Tracing Mode running at 1800p/60 FPS (HDR 10, DualSense adaptive trigger support available)
  • Performance Mode running at 1584p/120 FPS (HDR 10, DualSense adaptive trigger support available)
  • Balanced Mode running at 4K/60 FPS (HDR 10, DualSense adaptive trigger support available)

Moreover, Doom Eternal has added a new Battlemode 2v1 gametype; cross-play is supported between console platforms.
