DOOM closed beta begins April 1 in Australia



Still got your copy of Wolfenstein The New Order kicking around from 2014? If not, you better hope you activated the serial number on the slip inside the case before you lost it/sold it off because redeeming it is how players gain access to the upcoming closed beta test of DOOM.

That’s right, today Bethesda announced that the DOOM multiplayer beta advertised on copies of The New Order will run from March 31 (April 1 Australian time) to April 3 (April 4). According to the test’s FAQ page, the beta will feature two maps, 6v6 Team Deathmatch and “Warpath” game modes, the Revenant demon type, a bunch of weapons including the Super Shotgun, Plasma Rifle, Vortex Rifle and Lightning Gun.

Along with the announcement, there’s also a new trailer DOOM’s multiplayer that shows off several more demon spawn types and a very classic arena shooters vibe.

The full version of DOOM is launching May 13 on PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
