Doom Eternal Will Run at 30 FPS on Nintendo Switch

During the QuakeCon 2018, Bethesda showed some gameplay for Doom Eternal and even announced the Nintendo Switch version of the game.

In an interview with Eurogamer, Doom Eternal’s executive producer Marty Stratton confirmed that the game will be running at 30 FPS on Nintendo’s console.

We don’t run at 60 on Switch. Doom 2016 didn’t run at 60 on Switch, it ran at 30, and really it was no sacrifice to the experience. Yeah – that’s always the goal. The engine has an interesting way of flexing. It flexes around 60 fps. Sometimes game engines flex around other metrics but for us we try to set the line at always trying to maintain 60.

The Nintendo Switch version of Doom Eternal is in development by Panic Button studio that has previously worked on porting Doom and Wolfenstein 2. There is currently no release date announced.
