Doom Eternal will be released on Nintendo Switch on Dec. 8, Nintendo and Bethesda Softworks announced Monday. Doom Eternal was released on PlayStation 4, Stadia, Windows PC, and Xbox One in March, with a Nintendo Switch release date expected later in the year.

“The wait is almost over,” Nintendo posted in a YouTube trailer Monday. “Get ready to conquer demons when Doom Eternal comes to Nintendo Switch on Dec. 8!” In an FAQ published on the Bethesda website, the company said the game will be digital-only, available through the Nintendo Switch eShop and through digital codes from other retailers.

Doom Eternal’s The Ancient Gods: Part One downloadable content will be released “at a later date.”

People who’ve already pre-ordered the game ahead of the release date may have had their pre-orders canceled, Bethesda said. The company said to “reach out to your retailer for instructions.”

Doom Eternal’s expected storage size on the Nintendo Switch is 18.8 GB, according to Bethesda.

We called Doom Eternal a worthy follow-up to 2016’s Doom and a shooter with “greater scope and clearer intent” in our review of the game.
