"Happy that we announced FPS unlock officially - code team been working hard on eradicating that for #PCMASTERRACE <3," id Software's Tiago Sousa wrote on Twitter, confirming that the studio's new OpenGL/Vulkan-powered id Tech 6 game engine will enable frame rate unlocking on all the games it powers, including DOOM.

id Software originally planned to hit 1080p 60FPS across all platforms, and based on this new announcement, it looks like the team was able to hit their goal. As far as a technical perspective, early DOOM benchmarks saw AMD's Radeon cards smash NVIDIA's GTX lineup in 1080p, 1440p and 4K.

DOOM is slated to launch on May 13 across PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Be sure to check out the game's multiplayer customization options for a better look at what online PVP has to offer, and keep a look out for our official DOOM open multiplayer beta impressions.
