DOOM Eternal is set to be one of the biggest, baddest, brutalest(?) games coming to Switch this year, but even the mighty DOOM Slayer can't say no to the cuddly cuteness of a unicorn.
That's right, the upcoming sequel to 2016's DOOM will allow you to use special in-game skins to customise your character as you please. When the game launches on other platforms on 20th March, players will be able to claim the 'DOOMicorn Slayer Master Collection' by linking their Bethesda account to their Twitch Prime account, which will grant them access all of this:
- ‘DOOMicorn’ Slayer Skin
- ‘Purple Pony’ Skin Variant
- ‘Night-mare’ Skin Variant
- ‘Magic Meadow’ Base Podium
- ‘For Those Who Dare to Dream!’ Maxed-Out Podium
- ‘Clip Clop’ Stance Animation
- ‘Haymaker’ Intro Animation
- ‘Horsing Around’ Victory Animation
- ‘Love Conquers All’ Player Icon
- ‘Super Sparkle Slayer’ Nameplate & Title
Now, it's worth noting that the trailer above doesn't include the Switch logo, although we're confident this is relating to the 20th March release date for all of the items (thanks to the game's delay). Therefore, we'd imagine Switch owners will also be allowed access to all of these goodies later down the line.
After all, there has to be an Isabelle exclusive costume for the Switch version, right? If you're reading, Bethesda, we'll only ask for 10% of the royalties!
Will you be strutting your stuff as the DOOMicorn? Let us know with a comment below.

Fabulous! You're killing it darling!
This actually a pretty sweet deal. It is a shame I don't use Twitch, or have an active Bethesda account. I already have too many accounts as it is.
Anyone in their PR department that can Google "Doom" should know about the plethora of top notch Isabelle & Doom Slayer memes. It would be such a waste not to have some sort of official representation in game.
DOOM Slayer is best pon... Just kidding, Fluttershy is still best pony, yay. :3 Question is, what cutie mark DS has on his flank. A BFG?
Kinda pointless in a first person shooter, where you mostly just see your hands.
@EvilRegal It's Isabell or the animal crossing logo.
Uhm...weird. I am not sure how I feel about this.
I will keep the standard skin, thanks.
Makes sense for a first person shooter, I'm not against it but I don't see the point
Ah, I guess this is where all the micro-transactions will creep in?
@Dezzy I assume it has multiplayer? Or at the very least third person scenes.
Twilight Sparkle-themed outfit pls
No, but seriously, this game just looks better every time I see it.
Hell hath no fury like a unicorn scorned.
It's...cool, but, for once, I would love to see a unicorn design that's noble and legendary, not sparkly and rainbow-like. ON EDIT: I noticed there are skin variants...so there's still hope. Sort of. lol
I'll stick to the original Doom outfit, thank you very much. I just want to play the game.
Yuck, thank god its not included is base game. Ironic skins are the worst
However that doot skeleton 👍
Would love some coop on this game. Nothing better than slaying demons with your best bud. Also would love to kill some demons with Samus. Let the bodies hit the floor!
Some of them, like the classic marine suit, are nice. That unicorn nonsense though....No, thanks.
None of these Twitch Prime skins have ever worked for me. Tried getting them on Apex and customer service is non-existent.
@KingBowser86 - Yep, that’s the singular. As a group, we refer to them as The Uniscorned.
@mesome713 There is a co-op of sorts just not one where you can slay demons.
I am not digging this joke skin. Doom games have been known for having a sense of humor, whether it be the decapitated heads of a bunny/John Romero or hidden enemies ready to pounce players over a power-up. This is just kinda unimaginative in comparison since skins like this have been done countless times.
I'm just hoping that both DOOM Eternal and AC:NH make at least one reference to one another in-game.
Should make all the Fortnite kids happy at least.
Desperately trying to attract the Fortnite audience I see
Screw My Little Doomguy, i only care about,
Shut up and take my money! I’ve always dreamed of becoming a unicorn so this DLC clinches it! -throws money at the screen-
@Silly_G It's possible Doom Eternal would but I don't see New Horizons returning the favor unless there is someone in the localization team at N.O.A. that loves Doom.
@Pete41608 : Derrrr. Lol
@Elvie I'd sooner think we'll get Doomguy in Smash than any Doom reference in AC.
@Dezzy I agree it’s ridiculous. It’s not like Doom has pioneered multiplayer since the 90’s, or gave birth directly and indirectly to fps’ in which creating and swapping custom skins became an integral part of gaming culture 20 years before Fortnite, or anything like that. Who would even want to play Doom multiplayer? What are the devs even smoking?
While I think this is super cool and will be getting the game, let’s be honest, it’s an FPS. We’re only going to see our forearms and hands. (Not counting cutscenes)
Unless they implement a melee finishing move like in Destiny where you do it in 3rd person view none of us are going to see our customized suit the entire time.
@CTmatic agreed. Just like in real life. This is why I don’t bother wearing clothes. When do I even see myself anyway? like 5 minutes in the morning and then in the evening. And people spend so much money on fine clothes, the fools lol
There really should be Isabelle costume at some point.
@Dezzy cutscenes in this are gonna be in third person, so it's for that.
@ryancraddock "brutalist" refers to brutalism, a style of architecture; what you were looking for is "brutalest" as in a corruption of "most brutal".
The OG outfit looks awesome.
Personally speaking, all this fluff and guff in the new games that takes them further and further away from the original Doom is what makes me dislike them more and more--and that's not even taking into account this new customisation stuff.
Get rid of all the crap (the expanded and convoluted and less impacting as a result story, the almost God like "Doom Slayer", the terribly proportioned relative to the size of the planet Slayer base floating above the planet, some of the meh new demon designs, the blade on his arm, the grappling hook, the flame thrower as a shoulder mount, the level designs that look like a Mario platformer but set in Hell or whatever, the extremely forced always full paced all guns blazing gamplay only design, the silly Doom Slayer vs Demons as the only multi-player mode, and new some of these silly skins that make the game seem more like Fortnite than Doom, etc), get back closer to the original Doom, and I'd be much happier as a long time Doom fan.
These new Doom games are just not for me.
Shrugs, looks as silly as every other super hero outfit. I mean half of the super heroes are either in black like they are attending a funeral, look like a color wheel threw up on them, or look like they escaped from some themed S&M party. So hey if you want to look like unicorn, go ahead, makes just as much sense as wearing underwear over tights like most male superheroes like to do.
The levels are going to have lots of mirrors in order to enjoy a skin in a FPS
I refused to play otherwise. I was like "no way I'm playing a game without a unicorn outfit, sorry". So glad for this announcement.
I don't know if doomslayer would dress up...
