We believe that DOOM Eternal was an enormous advancement over the past predecessors in many ways. Although people who were waiting for some “more of Doom 2016” could be disappointed. It still has the furious style of the previous segments, but it’s more “campy” than the last game.
Some of the truly amazing aspects of this new DOOM are the incredible looking graphics, gorgeous landscapes, and a complex story to leave you wondering.

Optimal PC Builds
Technically speaking DOOM Eternal has far from ordinary in-game graphics and visuals, which is good news to gamers. By looking at the system benchmarks provided above, we can see that some of the mid-spec PC builds will be able to run it smoothly, and with no issues, while still enjoying high texture settings.
Since the latest installment of DOOM is, let’s just say – not as demanding as more of the other releases this year, you can even manage to pull through with a budget PC build, which should provide the typical gamer with the basic specs to get the most out of the video-game.
Considering the fact that DOOM Eternal is not entirely in the field of competitive gaming, as the bigger part of the fan-base returns for the single-player experience, we believe that the performance of a high-end PC just for the sake of this game is simply not worth it.
Although if you’re a live-streamer, video maker, or simply a gamer seeking the 4K experience, a high-end build might still be needed.
