Doom is receiving a multiplayer DLC in August 5, 2016
Doom is a first person shooter video game that has been released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC on May 13, 2016. Many Doom fans series were very happy to see this game being released and even if it is not as successful as the previous titles from the series, we can say that the game is still quite strong.
According to reports, all upcoming DLCs that will be released for Doom game will be focused on the multiplayer part of the game, but it will be handled in a way that it won’t split up friends.
Doom didn’t receive any DLC until now and a few months have already passed since the game was released. The first DLC that will be released for Doom is named Unto the Evil and it will be released in one week (August 5, 2016). This new DLC comes with new weapons and equipment, a new demon and three new multiplayers map, where you will be able to play with your friends.
However, not all players will want to purchase the DLC and usually if a friend of yours doesn’t have a DLC of a game, you will not be able to play together the new content that a DLC comes with. Well, the developer has come up with a great idea and it will allow you to invite your friends and play the three new maps with them without any problems. Doom has a new feature called “PartyPlay” and it will allow players who don’t own DLC content to play it without any problems, but only if the friend who they are in party with has purchased the DLC.
In other words, if a friend of yours already has the new “Unto the Evil” DLC for Doom, you will be able to join his/her party and play the three new multiplayer maps when the downloadable content is released.
Do you play Doom in multiplayer mode? Will you want the “PartyPlay” feature to be available in other multiplayer games?
