With a month just after launch, Bethesda has announced more online content to Doom's multiplayer components.




Presented by executive of id software Marty Stratton, the gameplay video (above) showed off some of the newest additions that will be added to Doom's Snapmap. With new visuals (including hell visual themes), props, and the ability to create single-player campaigns, these features will be released as free update within the coming months. 

In addition to Snapmap update, two new game modes will be added to Doom's online multiplayer. The first mode 'Exodus' will be a one-flag CTF mode, with the second mode 'Sector' focusing on a multizone capture-and-hold type of gameplay. Later this summer, Doom will also be updating their multiplayer with three additional free-for-all modes. These new modes will be free, and playable on both existing and future maps.

Along with the free updates, Bethesda will also be releasing first premium DLC pack, Unto The Evil, later next month. This pack will feature new a playable demon (Harvester), three new multiplayer maps (Offering, Cataclysm and Ritual), new guns, and new ways to customize your marine (new armor sets, taunts, colors and etc.).


Doom is currently available on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. If you haven't played Doom already, be sure to check out the limited time free demo that Bethesda is now offering on behalf of E3 week. In addition to the demo, be sure to check out Perry Ruhlands review.
