DOOM Will Run at Same Resolution and Frame Rate on All Platforms

Id Software has announced that its new not-quite-a-sequel but not-quite-a-reboot DOOM announced that the forthcoming first-person shooter will run at 1080p and 60fps on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

“We want players to wonder how DOOM and idTech 6 [game engine] games can be so visually stunning at 60 frames-per-second at 1080p on all platforms, when other titles cannot even achieve a similar look at 30 frames-per-second,” Lead Project Programmer Billy Khan told the Bethesda blog. “Our goal is to be the best-looking game at 1080p at 60fps.”

Presumably, as far as the PC release is concerned, the 1080p/60fps standard will be its minimum default, with more powerful systems able to support higher resolutions and frame rates.

“idTech 6 allows the artists and designers to quickly decorate the world with fine details,” Khan explained. “idTech 6’s physically based renderer and dynamic lighting system allows our artists to make our characters and environments more realistic and stunning than ever before.”

“Many on our tech team worked at Crytek before, so we’ve known and worked with each other for some time,” Lead Renderer Programmer Tiago Sousa added. “It’s been an interesting and productive venture, learning about idTech foundations and researching where and how we will take it to new levels.”

DOOM is set for release on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on 13th May.
