Doom Eternal was originally meant to release last November, but was announced to be delayed back in October.
The game is set for a steady rollout today, releasing at different times in different places. For reference, at the time of this article's release, the current time is 01:00 UTC on 20 March, so the game is already out in some places.
For PC users, on either Steam and Bethesda.net, there are a couple of different times that Doom Eternal will release. To put it simply, the game releases at different times (all given in UTC): 04:00 on 20 March for North America, 15:00 on 19 March for the Asia-Pacific region, and midnight on 20 March elsewhere. Timezone conversions can be found below.
- In North America, the game will unlock at 04:01 UTC on 20 March, which corresponds to 21:01 PDT on 19 March or 00:01 EDT on 20 March.
- In the Asia-Pacific region, the game unlocked at 15:01 UTC on 19 March, which corresponded to 00:01 JST, 02:01 AEDT, or 04:01 NZDT, all on 20 March – yes it's already out!
- Elsewhere, *Doom Eternal* was released at 00:01 UTC on 20 March.
That's not the end of the confusion, however. For consoles in North America, Doom Eternal releases at midnight EST (04:00 UTC) on 20 March, and for consoles elsewhere the game releases at midnight on 20 March in your current timezone.
For the Google Stadia, Doom Eternal unlocks at 04:00 on 20 March everywhere.
This is the first title in the Doom series since 2016's simply-titled Doom, and is a direct sequel to that title, set two years after the events of that game.
You can buy Doom Eternal today on Windows, Switch, PS4, Xbox One, or Google Stadia.
