I was just wondering whether they would add a 120 fps mode on next-gen consoles for Doom Eternal. This is some encouraging news!

I mean ESO still runs like garbage on high end systems, so I don't see next gen managing it all that well either. I've managed to run MMO's like WoW and FFXIV better than ESO.

Shame too, since I find ESO to be a genuinely good game other than the abysmal performance I get on my PC, whereas WoW and FFXIV run silky smooth...

Aye, I've always found myself actually preferring ESO's combat over the other two, while I am a lore nut for both WoW and ESO, but ESo has the prettier looking worlds (save for some of WoW's recent expac zones).

The main issue is that ESO was designed around 2 core CPu's and CPU speed over cores, which is what makes it a shoddy game, performance wise. But yeah, the other two run way better than ESO, but it sucks, because ESO has some nice vistas and combat to go with it. I wish Zenimax would actually put some money into an engine facelift, much like SE did with FFXIV.

It was only a matter of time until they confirm this for Doom Eternal. Made no sense not to given the DLC plans.
