Id Software’s DOOM Reboot Dated For May 15th Release

Doom Alpha

Today Bethesda and id Software finally revealed the release date for their long in development reboot of the classic DOOM. The game will hit the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on May 15th in Europe (and presumably May 12th in North America) the two companies announced in a press release this afternoon.

Alongside confirmation of the games’ release date was the announcement of a limited collector’s edition of DOOM featuring a limited edition Revenant, steel collector’s game case and in-game skins * emblems. If you’re looking to put a physical piece of DOOM on your shelf full of games it’ll set you back about $119.99 USD, no price has yet to be confirmed for Canada.

Here is how Bethesda described the collector’s edition of doom in their release:

“The limited DOOM collector’s edition, created in conjunction with TriForce, includes an exclusive, fully-realized 12” tall collector’s statue of one of the game’s most iconic demons: the Revenant. Modelled from actual in-game 3D files and striking in appearance, the demonic Revenant stands on an LED-lit base with internal, slow-spinning turbine from the UAC facility on Mars. The DOOM collector’s edition also includes a copy of the game packaged in an exclusive, battle-worthy metal case.

The development process behind the latest version of DOOM has been quite long, with mentions of the game dating back all the way to 2009. It looks like after several false starts the world will finally get to frag some hellspawn on current generation consoles this May.

Bethesda has also released a new trailer focusing on the game’s single player campaign. You can check it out below.
