DOOM and DOOM II New Update Adds Gyro Aiming and More

DOOM and DOOM II are among the best classic first-person shooters ever released, and today they have become even better on Nintendo Switch, thanks to a new update.

With the new update, it is possible to play both games using gyro controls, providing new depth to an experience that already has plenty of it.

Gyro Aim, enabled by default, allows you to look left and right by either turning the controller, or rolling the controller left or right. This allows for an additional amount of precision by enabling fine corrections to turning in order to track moving enemies, while still using the right analog stick for large turning movements. Gyro Aim can be set to either use the controller’s yaw, or pitch, or disabled entirely, along with a separate sensitivity slider. Please note: On the PC version, Gyro Aiming is only supported when using a DualShock 4 controller.

The new DOOM and DOOM II update also bring plenty of other tweaks and fixes. You can check out the full update notes on the Bethesda Official Website.

DOOM and DOOM II are a good way to spend some time taking down demons while waiting for DOOM Eternal, the new entry in the series released earlier this year on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The Switch version has yet to receive a final release date, but the developer feels confident about this version of the game, which will offer the same exciting FPS action of the other releases.

DOOM and DOOM II are now available on Nintendo Switch as well as on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iOS and Android.
