Bethesda have announced a double dose of DOOM goodness today, with the first being that DOOM is going to get an open beta starting April 15 to April 18, no codes, no platform restrictions, just download it on your platform of choice and you are right to go. Players will get access to two game modes, Team Deathmatch and Warpath, on two maps Heatwave and Infernal.
But that is only one half the the new, in addition to that a Season Pass for multiplayer content was also announced. Post launch, three additional content packs will be released at $23.95 each or $59.95 for the season pass, with each pack delivering a number of new maps, hack modules, playable demons, weapons and more.
The first DLC will be available this winter and give you access to:
- Three new maps
- One new weapon
- One new playable demon
- One new armour set
- One new piece of equipment
- New hack modules and taunts
- New customization colours and patterns
But don't worry if you are not into paying for more maps, because DOOM is coming packed in with SnapMap, their user friendly tool which lets players create their own maps and modes, providing countless options for chaotic fun.
On top of being able to access and play new modes and maps created by fellow gamers, id plans to offer content updates for SnapMap, including map modules; props and objects; additional features and functionality; AI enhancements; editing tool enhancements and more. Multiplayer will also receive content updates in the form of new game modes. Both of these SnapMap and multiplayer updates will be free to use and play.
Be sure to look for DOOM when it releases on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on May 13th
