The game is a real challenge but lots of fun and now we see that it has been a huge hit for Bethesda.



March 25, 2020 — (ROCKVILLE, MD) – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company,

doubling the launch revenue of DOOM (2016). DOOM Eternal was the best-selling game
on Steam for the week and immediately soared to over 100,000 concurrent players on
the platform.

The successful launch of DOOM Eternal mirrors its global critical acclaim. To date
DOOM Eternal has earned Metacritic scores of 90/89/87 on PC/Xbox/PS4 and a 96%
Critics Recommended rating on OpenCritic — with many calling it a clear
game-of-the-year contender and one the best first-person shooter campaigns in the
history of the genre.

• “A ripping, tearing masterpiece” – The Sixth Axis

Eternal, received high praise too. Digital Foundry, a leading technology reviewer,
provided a detailed and lengthy analysis of the idTech engine, concluding:

• “idTech 7 is incredible”

• “The game is fast, optimal and beautiful – and one of the most impressive looking
titles I’ve ever played”

“We want to thank our millions of fans for their enthusiastic support of this
amazing title,” said Ron Seger, SVP of Global Sales at Bethesda Softworks. “Despite
thousands of retail stores closing, we are pleased so many fans have been able to
enjoy DOOM Eternal.”
