This not only allows users to aim more precisely by allowing them to tilt their consoles while aiming but also provides for a better and more interactive and immersive interface. This updated option of ‘motion aiming’, present in the menu, is quite similar to the motion controls in Splatoon 2.
Doom Nintendo Switch latest update has also added a new party system to Doom multiplayer. This shall allow players to team up with friends while playing the game and vanquishing foes. The third update to grace the game is a shiny new game icon that mimics the look of the classic game and matches the game’s box art.
Apart from these, increased average resolution in lower-resolution areas of the game, CPU optimization, and the addition of traditional Chinese language support are some of the improvements made in the updated version. Among fixes, the update has fixed an issue that resulted in a possible crash when using the BFG, fixed an issue that caused audio issues while playing and caused stretched textures to appear in multiplayer. It also fixed an issue where controls became unresponsive on the game menu and an issue where players may have incorrectly received a ban notice in multiplayer.
