DOOM PC Features Revealed – FOV Slider, Chromatic Aberration Option, Ultra-Wide Monitor Support

id Software has revealed the PC features for DOOM. According to the team, the PC version of DOOM will support ultra-wide monitors, will feature an uncapped framerate, will sport a FOV slider, and will offer an extensive amount of options.

As id Software claimed:

“PC gaming is in our DNA here at id. Just like so many of you, we also love to tinker with settings to get the exact experience we want – and every ounce of performance our systems can handle. We will be running an uncapped framerate on PC at launch, supporting ultra-wide 21:9 monitors, allowing wider FOV, and providing a wide variety of advanced settings that allows any PC connoisseur the opportunity to make intelligent tradeoffs between visual fidelity and performance.”

What’s also interesting is that in the coming weeks, id Software will reveal more about the idTech 6 engine architecture, its rendering pipeline, its customization tech and other initiatives it has underway to “broaden our minimum PC spec even further than our current expectations.”

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