Today at QuakeCon... DOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!

This week was busy enough, but now it's gone to hell.

Listings have appeared on the European eShop for the first three Doom games, all of which will launch today. Doom and Doom II will be €4.99/£3.99, while Doom 3 is priced at €9.99/£7.99.

Listings haven't appeared in North America yet, but the annual QuakeCon (referred to as DoomCon this year due to Doom Eternal) is this weekend.

UPDATE: North American pricing is $4.99/$6.49 for I and II, and $9.99/$12.99 for III. The games as launched were configured to require a Bethesda.net login despite having no online connectivity otherwise, but Bethesda has confirmed that this was intended to be optional and patches are forthcoming.

All three are available on the North American eShop.

I call BS on them claiming it is supposed to be optional to have a Bethseda.net account, I think they are backtracking after they got massive backlash on it (and rightfully so).

A shame they don't have online multiplayer, so I'll probably pass for now.

I'll eventually pick one up as I have no copy of the original, but will wait for a really good sale. At 4.99 I wouldn't be surprised if it drops to $1-$2 during a future sale.

apparently if you switch your Switch to airplane mode then you can get around the need to log in.
