We're in the final home stretch for the release of DOOM Eternal, with Bethesda releasing the final system requirements for the game and adding in a monster new 'Ultra Nightmare' graphics mode. The previous PC requirements for DOOM Eternal only included the minimum and recommended specs, the new ones include a lot of changes and add in the new Ultra Nightmare requirements.

DOOM Eternal drops on March 20 and if you want to play it how the developers at id Software envisioned, then you're going to need quite the monster rig. id Software has added in a new 'Ultra Nightmare' requirements listing, where you'll need a PC as fast as the Devil himself to run it at either 4K 60FPS or 1440p 120FPS.

The developer recommends an Intel Core i9-9900K or AMD Ryzen 7 3700X processor (or better), 16GB of RAM, 50GB of HDD space, and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card.

DOOM Eternal is the first game to be powered by the next-gen id Tech 7 engine, with developer id Software deep diving into what makes the engine tick in a video with DOOM Eternal executive producer Marty Stratton, below:

In the video, Stratton explains: "The size of the world, the scope of the world, our levels are twice as big as they were in DOOM 2016. That was to really establish a sense of scale and epicness to DOOM Eternal. You know, one of the things that we established coming out of DOOM 2016 was that we really wanted to take players to places that they'd never seen before".
