Bethesda Login No Longer Required to Play Classic DOOM Games on Console

Bethesda has made good on their promise, and its classic DOOM games can now be played without a Bethesda.net login.

Old school DOOM fans were elated when Bethesda announced at QuakeCon 2019 the first three original DOOM games were now available for PlayStation 4 (and other consoles). Their excitement quickly soured when they discovered the games required a Bethesda.net login to access some features or even the whole game itself.

Even worse, if the connection to the Bethesda account was lost, players would have a disconnect notification warning at best or get kicked entirely at worst. Suffice to say, players were an unhappy lot.

As of August 15, 2019, their woes are over as Bethesda has sent out a glorious patch for DOOM and DOOM II.

However, please note that this is a temporary Band-Aid for the problem.

But whenever this permanent fix releases into the wild, we will let you know! In the meantime, enjoy your hassle-free offline romps through hell.

DOOM, DOOM II, and DOOM 3 are available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch. Have you tried the classic DOOM titles? Let us know what you think of them in the comments!
