Doom Eternal Gets A New Look With These Free Render Modes

Added to the game today, additional render modes will let you alter Doom Eternal's presentation significantly.


Doom Eternal makes demon slaying look better than it ever has, with brightly-colored effects soaking the detailed warzones you wage battle in. Today, you can toss that all aside to make the entry look a lot more like the game that started it all.

As part of a free update, iD Software has added a handful of render modes to Doom Eternal that let you have fun with its visual presentation. One warps the screen into the dimly lit green of past handheld consoles, while another pixelates the action to replicate the look of the original Doom back in the '90s.

Now Playing: Doom Eternal Video Review

If you're not looking for something retro, you can choose from more traditional modes such as Black and White, a more muted Cinematic mode, and a very serious-looking Gritty mode. Every mode works in the game's photo mode too, so you can share your favorite chainsaw kills with the flair they deserve.

Doom Eternal launched earlier this year and will be getting additional story DLC in the future. Its story, however, was one of the weaker aspects of an otherwise fantastic shooter. In our Doom Eternal review, critic Phil Hornshaw wrote, "Its combat is just as quick and chaotic, but requires you to constantly analyze everything that's happening in order to come out victorious. Once you get the hang of the rhythm of Doom Eternal, it'll make you feel like a demon-slaying savant."
