The newest iteration of Id Software’s demon shooter Doom is almost upon us. Doom — the first entry in the classic series since 2004’s Doom 3 — is scheduled to launch on May 13th. For those with itchy trigger fingers and an incurable impatience, there’s a balm coming next week in the form of a four-day open beta test.
The open beta, which will run from April 15th through the 18th, won’t feature the story campaign but instead will give testers two multiplayer maps to dominate. Any and all are welcome to try out a team deathmatch and a moving king-of-the-hill mode to see how this version of Doom handles.
Following its launch, Doom has three DLC packs in the making which can be purchased individually or via season pass. The first DLC will include a trio of new maps, a playable demon, a different weapon, and all sorts of other goodies.
