Doom Gets Motion Controls On Switch

Doom Gets Motion Controls On Switch

Bethesda has patched in motion controls for Doom on Nintendo Switch.

In addition to motion controls, Bethesda also detailed that it has added a new party system for the game's multiplayer mode to allow players to group up more easily and find matches together.

The implementation of motion controls in DOOM comes as a surprise considering Bethesda has made zero mention of it despite fans requesting it ever since the game launched last November.

The latest update regarding motion aiming allows the player to use the built-in gyroscope of the Joy-Con along with traditional aiming using the controller's analog stick. If you have played Splatoon before on the Nintendo Switch, then you will likely be familiar with the feel and performance of the controls (albeit in a first-person perspective versus third-person).

Fans begun to notice the quietly-implemented feature earlier today upon booting version 1.1 of the game on Nintendo Switch. It also includes CPU optimizations and increases the resolution in certain areas of the game, so Doom on Switch might look better than it did before the patch.

There are no patch notes available yet, but id Software had previously promised that this update would fix the game's widely reported audio issues, among other things.
