Players can now register for the Doom Alpha happening this weekend for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. According to tweets by developer Bethesda, keys are being given on a first come first serve basis so you better hurry if you want one. You can sign up for the Alpha here.
The new Doom game hasn’t recieved too much hype as of right now, and Bethesda is currently keeping any footage of the Alpha strictly under wraps. Any player that participates will have to agree to an NDA. Doom is one of those franchises that hasn’t been good for a long time, but on the other hand it hasn’t been made for a long time either so maybe that will balance it out. It’s hard for a franchise that codified many of our now standard things in gaming to not appear generic, and I don’t know if this new Doom will succeed in actually being interesting. Still, if shooters are your thing Doom is still a pretty big deal, so go out there and shoot some demons. Just be sure not to tell anyone too much about it, lest the lawyers come and get you.
