Doom is set for release this Friday and Amazon has announced that Prime members will be receiving their copies from Midnight on Thursday onwards.

“We’ll be taking orders for DOOM as soon as it appears in our app, from around 22:00 on Thursday, 12 May 2016 and will continue to take orders while stocks last. Orders placed by 23:45 on the night have the option to get their deliveries within the 00:00-02:00 delivery window, while delivery windows remain available,” said Jason Weston, Director of Amazon Prime Now in the UK.

You can even order snacks and drinks galore to be delivered with it, so that you won’t have to leave the house for days. Pizzas are even mentioned. No word on whether you can grab a couple of rolls of toilet paper.

If you can’t quite manage to stay awake until midnight, Amazon are also offering Friday morning slots starting at 8am.

“It’s been well over a decade since the last big DOOM release and we want to make sure local fans get their hands on the latest edition of the game in super quick time with our midnight deliveries so they can head into single and multiplayer battles with fellow DOOM fans across the globe as soon as the game is available.

“Gamers can also take advantage of the food and drink products available for delivery using Prime Now and receive their copy of the game with crisps, soft drinks and more to help them tackle the latest instalment of the iconic game.”

You can find out more details about eligible postcodes, where to get the app, and how to get money off the game over on the special page they’ve got set up for the launch.

Doom is out on Friday May 13 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
