GameStop has broken up one of 2020’s major couples. Doom Slayer and Isabelle no longer share a release date, as the retailer has decided to start selling DOOM Eternal early. People can get physical copies on March 19, 2020.

GameStop announced the move late last night on March 18, 2020. To help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, the store decided to begin selling DOOM Eternal on March 19, 2020 in an attempt to have fewer people in stores at once. Previously, there might have been concerns about potential crowds who might have come in on March 20, 2020 for both this game and Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Here’s the announcement tweet.

Bethesda has also updated the Steam page for the game to answer some questions about PC copies. Some important notes are that people can immediately link their Slayer Club account to the game, Empowered Demons aren’t immediately available as an option, and Photo Mode is in beta on PCs. 

DOOM Eternal will be released on March 20, 2020 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, though people can get physical copies at GameStops on March 19, 2020. There is also a special Twitch Prime skin available for the game.
