The new 'DOOM' game is insanely good and violent as hell -- and it's out now on Nintendo Switch

There’s a new “DOOM” game, folks. The first in over a decade!

Good news: It’s a crazy game! Better news: It’s out now! It arrived last May on Xbox One and PS4, but it just launched on Nintendo’s hot Switch console last week.

But that terrifying, screaming demon — which, yes, has some type of automatic rocket launcher attached to its back — is just the tip of the demon-filled iceberg. Here’s a taste of some of the absolutely ridiculous things you’re able to do in this new “DOOM” game:

You need to understand upfront that this post is full of GIFs depicting extreme violence.

Seriously, last chance.

What kind of game is 'DOOM'? The kind of game that STARTS with you using a dead body as a key.

And what's waiting for you beyond that locked door? About ten trillion demons. And they're ANGRY.

Thankfully, you've got a trusty shotgun -- a 'DOOM' staple that returns in the re-birth of 'DOOM.'

This is what this game is, in case there's any confusion: a re-imagining of the 'DOOM' franchise through the scope of modern game consoles.

The new 'DOOM,' like the old 'DOOM,' glories in violence. It's like a hyperviolent playground.

To the extent that you literally rip the horns off of demons and use them as weapons. It's a comical level of hyperviolence.

There's a serious amount of speed in the gameplay. You're running as fast as possible through a murderous gauntlet of angry demons. And how do you deal with that? By curb-stomping them.

And sawing them in half.

And, eventually, facing a massive demon that straight up isn't having it.

But you want even more, don't you? The full trailer for the Nintendo Switch version of 'DOOM' is below. Do yourself a favour and don't miss it! 'DOOM' was already available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and now it's available on Nintendo Switch.
