Some long requested features added to the game at last.
Bethesda has released the first update for the Nintendo Switch version of DOOM since the game launched back in November, and it adds a lot of features that users have been requesting for a while now. The headlining feature is the addition of gyroscopic controls for motion assisted aiming, which should enable far faster shooting in a very fast paced game than traditional dual analog would allow for. Interestingly enough, this is not even a feature that the PS4 version of the game offers (even though the DualShock 4 also has gyroscopes built in).
A new party system has also been added to the game’s multiplayer mode, which should make it easier for players to find each other; this will come as a great help, since the Nintendo Switch’s native online functionality is not really the best. The icon for the game on the Switch home screen has also been updated- given how much Switch owners care about that sort of thing, I am sure they will appreciate that.
You can check out the full patch notes below. DOOM is available on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
