The update will be available exclusively for owners of Husqvarna Automower® NERA models. You can sign up now to play from 9 April to 9 September 2024.  

When the first-person shooter game DOOM was released in 1993, it changed the gaming landscape forever. The intense atmosphere, 3D realism (for the time), the growls from demons approaching around the corner and the pulse-pounding experience made DOOM a cultural phenomenon.  

The game’s legacy remains undiminished. And now, for the first time in history, it’s possible to mow down demons on your own Husqvarna robotic lawn mower.

How to register  

The software update will be made available for download via the Husqvarna Automower® Connect App, exclusively for Husqvarna Automower® NERA models. Owners of these robotic lawnmower models can sign up for the software update here already now:  

Following registration, and once the software update is released for download on 9 April, 2024, it may take up to a week before the game is playable on the robotic lawnmower. A tip to get the software update downloaded as fast as possible is to enable Wi-Fi on the robotic lawnmower and to ensure good coverage at the charging station.  

Sign-up closes on 26 August 2024. On September 9, 2024, a software update will remove  DOOM from the robotic lawn mowers. 

Please note that this gaming experience is for adults only. Kids must not interact with this product and/or our mowers.

Yes, you will receive an automatic confirmation message if your registration is successful.

If your registration was not successful, you should have received an error message. If your registration was successful, the robotic lawnmower must be connected to the charging station and the connectivity of the robotic lawnmower at the charging must be good, for the update to appear in the app. 

How fast the software update appears as a notification in the Husqvarna Automower® Connect App largely depends on the robotic lawnmower’s connectivity at the charging station (the mower needs to sit in the charging station). Enabling Wi-Fi on the robotic lawnmower and ensuring coverage at the charging station is a good way to ensure the update is received as soon as possible. 

Playing DOOM (1993) on Husqvarna Automower® NERA robotic lawnmowers was a great success at DreamHack Winter 2023, which took place in Sweden November 24-26, 2023. DreamHack, famous for the Bring Your Own Computer (BYOC) LAN party, is one of the largest networks of digital culture and entertainment festivals in the world. At the event in Sweden, Husqvarna arranged a DOOM (1993) Lawn party, probably the first multiplayer competition of the game on a non-gaming device. Qualifications were done using Single Player Time Trial, and the semi-finals and the finals were held on the main stage in the legendary Deathmatch Mode.  

DOOM is only playable on Husqvarna Automower® NERA models during a limited time period from April 9, 2024 until September 9, 2024.
