Bethesda’s first three Doom games are available on the Nintendo Switch today. In order to play the titles, players will have to do something they never worried about with the originals: connect to the internet and log in to their Bethesda accounts.
Bethesda didn’t mention the login issue when the team announced that all three games were headed to the Switch at the annual QuakeCon convention today, but ResetEra forum administrator Nibel confirmed the news on Twitter:
Looks like DOOM 1+2 require you to login into your Bethesda account before you can play
After your initial login, you can play it offline as well
DOOM 3 requires you to login into your BNet account “to access certain features and/or content” pic.twitter.com/OOYcUEaRi5
