Patch takes Doom to 4K resolution on consoles


Bethesda Softworks has released a patch which allows Doom to run in 4K resolution on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. 

Announcing the upscaling move in a blogpost on its website, the publisher said: “When Doom launched in 2016, id Software focused on mixing cutting-edge graphics with relentless, fast-paced gameplay for users on all platforms. Now id is pushing the game’s graphics even further with the release of a new 4K Update.”

The update went live on March 29 – just in time for Easter, somewhat ironically, since the game’s depiction of hell will now be rendered in even more gory glory than before.
