July 26, the first three parts of Doom were released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Ninetndo Switch. As it turned out, you need to create a Bethesda.net account for the game. The first two parts can be played without access to the Internet – just log in to your Bethesda.net account only once. However, Doom 3 requires a constant connection to access “certain features and / or content”.
At the same time, there are no online components in the first and second Doom. Bethesda’s decision caused bewilderment among the players, and they began to add a message about the need to connect to screenshots and videos from different games.

Bethesda itself later explained that the requirement to connect an account was related to the Slayers Club, the official Doom fan club.
