DOOM is having an Open Beta weekend starting Friday the 15th, with the brutal multiplayer mode open for all to play on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Previously only open to those that pre-ordered, purchased Wolfenstein: New Order or signed up for the Alpha, DOOM is opening its demonic gates for all to play for one glorious, bloodsoaked weekend. Players will be able to download the Beta and take part in Team Deathmatch and Wartpath matches on the Heatwave and Infernal Maps.
The previous Beta builds weren’t perfect (weapon balancing is a particular gripe), but it’s certainly fun to play, and offers a fantastic blast of old school run and gun action with no reloads, no health regeneration and no sprinting. This is no modern tactical first person shooter – it’s an unashamedly old school FPS with big guns, buckets of blood and adrenaline-fuelled run and gun combat.
