DOOM has sold one million copies on Steam

DOOM was released almost three months ago and according to SteamSpy’s data, id Software’s first-person shooter has sold one million copies on Valve’s distribution service, Steam.


To its credit, DOOM is a fantastic action FPS that pays tribute to its classic predecessors. id Software has managed to create an amazing first-person shooter that also looks and runs great.

As we wrote in our PC Performance Analysis:

“DOOM is one of the most optimized PC games of 2016. The game looks beautiful, features one hell of options to tweak, comes with spectacular built-in performance metrics, sports proper on-screen keyboard indicators, and runs superbly on the PC platform”

Moreover, DOOM showcased the benefits of Vulkan. Thanks to it, a lot of scenes run better, even on NVIDIA’s hardware (as those scenes were limited by the increased number of draw calls).

In fact, we witnessed a 60fps performance boost in some scenes while testing Vulkan.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
