The team also announced that Invasion Mode, which allows players to enter the games of others as a playable demon, will come out as a free update a short period after launch. Note that DOOM 64 will be a pre-order bonus for DOOM Eternal on all platforms (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC), but will also release March 20, 2020 on all platforms. Finally, the Nintendo Switch version of DOOM Eternal will release after the other platforms.
