DOOM – Open beta and post-launch content

Bethesda announces that DOOM’s open beta will run from April 15 (04:00 AM) through April 18 (06:00 AM). No code will be required to get started with the open beta. Players will be able to simply log into their platform of choice and download the beta to access Team Deathmatch and Warpath on the Heatwave and Infernal maps.

These maps and modes are just a small part of what players will be able to experience when the game releases on May 13 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. In some recent videos we’ve already gone over maps, modes and power-ups of DOOM’s multiplayer. However, DOOM support doesn’t end when the game launches. For the rest of the year we hope to provide free content updates for both SnapMap and multiplayer.

The DOOM community has always been known for creating a lot of its own content and we want to encourage that further with SnapMap, an innovative new component of DOOM made to make creating, sharing and playing a fast and easy experience. In addition, id also plans new content updates for SnapMap, including map modules; props and objects; additional features and functionality; AI improvements and more. The multiplayer will also receive content updates in the form of game modes. Both SnapMap and multiplayer updates will be free.

In addition to the planned free support and content updates, three premium multiplayer DLC packs will also be released after launch. These offer a number of new maps, hack modules, playable demons, weapons and more. The first DLC will be available this summer and will give access to the following:
• Three new maps
• One new weapon
• One new playable demon
• One new armor
• One new piece of gear
• New hack modules and provocations
• New colors and patterns

Each DLC pack costs €14.99, but they are also available together via the Season Pass for €39.99. Contact your favorite retailer to pre-order the DOOM Season Pass.
