DOOM Open Beta Launching April 15th; DLC Announced

Bethesda has announced that the latest game in the long-running Doom franchise will be having an open beta run of its multiplayer modes. Starting at 12 AM EST on April 15th and running until 11:59 PM on April 17th, anyone on a PS4, Xbox One, or PC will be able to download and play the Deathmatch and  Warpath modes on two maps: Heatwave and Infernal.

In addition, Bethesda has discussed their DLC model for the upcoming game. Free content updates will come periodically to the game for the rest of the year, a now-standard practice for the genre, and three paid DLC packs will be released alongside these updates, each containing a variety of new game content, including maps and weapons.

The first DLC pack has been outlined as containing…

  • Three new maps
  • One new playable demon
  • One new weapon
  • New armor and equipment
  • New hack modules
  • New taunts and customization options

Each DLC pack will cost $14.99 USD, with a season pass that encompasses all three available for $39.99, letting you save five dollars. DOOM launches for good on May 19th.
