To upgrade Doom Eternal from the Xbox One to the Xbox Series X|S, simply start up your Xbox and Microsoft’s Smart Delivery System will automatically update the game once the upgrade becomes available. For those of you with the physical copy of Doom Eternal, the disc will need to be inserted into the Xbox Series X to receive the upgrade and will still be required to play.

To upgrade Doom Eternal on the Playstation 5, download the Doom Eternal free upgrade from the Playstation Store once it becomes available. If you own the physical copy of the game on the Playstation 4, you’ll be required to insert the disc to receive the upgrade and play.

Doom Eternal was originally released for the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC formats in March 2020. Bethesda revealed that the game doubled the launch revenue of the previous entry, the Doom reboot from 2016. The game was also the best-selling game on Steam during the first week of its launch, with over 100,000 concurrent players during its peak.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
