Doom open beta coming next week, DLC also announced

Bethesda has announced an open beta for Doom that will begin on April 15 for PS4, Xbox One & PC.

The beta period will end on April 18, but you won’t need a code or anything to jump in and play over the weekend.

Players will be able to try out Team Deathmatch and Warpath on the game’s Heatwave and Inferno maps, as well as a slew of weapons and abilities.

“These maps and modes are just a fraction of what players will experience when the game launches May 13,” Bethesda said in a statement.

  • One new weapon
  • One new playable demon
  • One new armour set
  • One new piece of equipment
  • New hack modules and taunts
  • New customization colours and patterns

Doom is set to launch on May 13 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
