Need another way to play Doom? How about a lawn mower?

In the eternal quest to put Doom on literally everything ever, it is now possible to play Doom on a… lawn more?

There are truly a lot of ridiculous ways you can play Doom. Classics include things like fridges and calculators, but there are more obscure ways like the note taking app Notepad, a Lego brick, and possibly worst of all, given the current state of the social media website, Twitter. But, as revealed by electric gardening tools manufacturer Husqvarna earlier this week, there’s a new weird way to play Doom on the way, and it’s through the company’s Automower Nera line of lawn mowers. “Get ready to rip, shear, mow and tear as DOOM is back!” reads the description of the lawn mower’s update trailer.

“This April, we’re making the legendary game playable on our robotic mowers as a tribute to 30 years of mowing down demons. The update is available for the Husqvarna Automower Nera product range.” According to Husqvarna’s website, “the decision to release the game to product owners follows the amazing response DOOM x Husqvarna robotic lawnmowers had at the gaming event DreamHack Winter 2023.” It’s important to note though that this is only a temporary thing, as the update will only be available from April 9 to September 9. So if you’re one of the presumably small number of people that owns one of these lawn mowers and would actually want to play Doom on it, make sure you do so as soon as the update’s out.
