The DOOM Multiplayer Open Beta Will Start Soon

DOOM recently went through a closed beta phase that lasted from March 31 to April 3, and since the game’s official launch date of May 13 is rapidly approaching, id Software is making preparations for the game’s open beta, which is actually going to kick off on April 15 and will last until April 17. During this open beta phase, everyone will be able to try out DOOM’s multiplayer in the form of Team Deathmatch and Warpath modes on two maps named Heatwave and Infernal.

Bethesda has also stated that id Software plans to implement a series of content updates for SnapMap after the game’s release. These updates would include new map modules, objects and props, as well as new features and functionality improvements, editing tool enhancements and AI enhancements. DOOM’s multiplayer will also receive content updates such as new game modes, which should prove interesting. Apparently, the aforementioned  SnapMap and multiplayer updates will be completely free to use, which is definitely a big plus. From what I’ve seen so far, DOOM is shaping up as a very promising title, although some users have criticized the game’s multiplayer mode for losing its original DOOM feel and identity. However, we’ll just have to wait for the official release in order to form a proper opinion.
