Originally having launched in 1993 on a floppy disk, DOOM has exceeded all expectations and has served as one of the longest-running first-person franchises with numerous sequels, spin-off titles, films, comics, and has become a centerpiece in the pop culture lexicon. Now, it’s time to celebrate 25 years of DOOM.
After 25 years since its release, DOOM has become one of the most beloved first-person shooter franchises in the gaming industry. Serving as one of the grandfathers of the genre, DOOM has continued ripping and tearing through twenty-five years of Hell’s forces, seeing some of its most beloved mods, gibs, guns, and has even managed to obtain some of the most passionate fans over the years “on this side of Phobos” (as stated to us by Bethesda).
Whether it’s new fans having joined the fanbase with the release of DOOM (2016) or fans having wreaked havoc on the Icon of Sin in DOOM II in 1994, fans around the world remain some of the most beloved of them all and continue to rip and tear with BFGs and Chainsaws alike as they prepare for the latest adventure in DOOM Eternal when it launches in 2019.
As fans prepare to celebrate the 25th anniversary of DOOM today, Bethesda has revealed a new and exclusive Zombie DOOM Slayer skin for DOOM Eternal when it launches for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in 2019.
