Whereas Doom’s previous beta required a fancy code to be part of, April 15th will see fans flood multiplayer arenas as they take part in Team Deatmatch and Warpath on Heatwave and Infernal maps. PS4, PC, and Xbox One owners can take part in the open beta for free, and those who were lucky enough to get in on the previous beta round are already singing the game’s praises.
Doom is set to be released in full on May 13th on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. However, Id have also announced a series of 3 DLC packs to become available after launch. While extra free multiplayer game modes will become available later in the year, the first of these multiplayer DLC packs will include three new maps, one new weapon, one new playable demon, new armour and equipment, new hacks and taunts, and enhanced customisation options.
Players can either opt for the full season pass which attains them every DLC as it is released, for $39.99 (£29.99), or each singular pack will cost $14.99 (£11.99).
