You are not exactly going to be firing up Doom Eternal on your Chromebook then… (though maybe Stadia, GeForce Now and co. might have something to say about that).

It looks good too. Or at least, it will if your PC is up to scratch. Take a look at some of the goriest moments from our hands on below…
