The classic Doom title and its two sequels originally had a rough go when they were released on Nintendo Switch and users began encountering login issues when they tried to access their Bethesda.net accounts. The bug has since been fixed by Bethesda and it is now releasing an update that improves Doom and Doom II, as well as adds bonuses for players who link their Slayers Club accounts in the Doom titles on Switch.
Unfortunately, the ported Doom titles were originally ill-received due to the login issues. They have since been improved, however, due to updates from Bethesda. Moreover, they are sufficient ports and, with Doom Eternal's release approaching, Bethesda is providing more updates to the ported games.

It is great to see that Bethesda is taking the time to enhance the Doom experience for Switch owners. Likely, this is partly in anticipation for Doom Eternal. General player experience is also a likely factor in Bethesda's decision to add in these improvements.
Anyone with a Slayers Club account can link it in-game to earn different outfits. The outfits can be seen above in Doom's Twitter post. Linking accounts in the first Doom gives players the Indigo Doom Marine Skin & Doom (1993) Nameplate. Meanwhile, linking accounts in Doom II provides players with the Bronze Doom Marine Skin & Doom II Nameplate. Finally, linking accounts in Doom 3 grants players the Red Doom Marine Skin & Doom 3 Nameplate.
While the outfits aren't necessarily enough to convince players without a Slayers Club account to sign up, they are neat and a great addition if you already have an account.
Doom Eternal will launch November 22nd, 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and the upcoming Google Stadia, so go ahead and claim these skins right now if you want more options when it comes to customizing your Marine.
