During the last year’s E3, Bethesda showcased the latest Doom game. Unsurprisingly, many fans were ecstatic over the game’s announcement. Since then, Bethesda has been actively working on latest Doom installment and according to the latest blog post by Bethesda, it seems that the Doom open beta is coming our way.

The first Doom game was released way back in 1993, quickly becoming the seminal first-person shooter with its fast-paced action and networked multiplayer support. Doom was a revolutionary game and therefore, it’s no surprise that many fans are excited for the latest Doom release.

Doom open beta to take place on April 15th

There was a closed Doom multiplayer test recently, but don’t fret if you didn’t get your chance to participate: Bethesda has plans for an open beta. Everybody is welcome to take part in open beta — in order to join, you only need to download the beta client and you’re good to go.

There won’t be any substantial differences between the open and closed beta. Just like in closed beta, you’ll have access to Team Deathmatch and Warpath game modes, and you’ll be able to play on the Heatwave and Infernal maps.

User created content was always a key aspect of Doom series, and the latest Doom game will also feature a map creator called SnapMap. Developers plan to update SnapMap regularly so we expect to see new objects and features added frequently. There are plans for future multiplayer updates as well, and both updates and SnapMap editor will be available to users for free.

In addition to free updates, there will be three DLC packs available after the game’s release. The first DLC will be available this summer and contain three new maps, one new weapon, and one playable demon. Additional content includes a new armor set and a new piece of equipment along  with new hack modules, taunts, and new customization colors and patterns. This DLC will cost$14.99, but you can purchase all three DLC for $39.99 using the Doom Season Pass.

The Doom open beta will take place from April 15 to April 17, and will be available on all major platforms. Regarding the full version of the game, the latest Doom installment will be available on May 13th.
