Doom open beta to kick off this weekend

Doom’s closed beta was just a couple of weeks ago, but already developer Bethesda are opening up their new game to the masses. An open beta will begin later this week (April 15th) and its going to last two days. Fragging will be plentiful as all players will be welcomed in, with nothing but an age gate to prevent you from seeing the new masterpiece from the creators of Skyrim.

We even have a new trailer just for the open beta, and watching it should give you some idea of what you can expect in the gameplay. Basically a lot of blood death, and healthy pick ups, oh and a few demons and some chain saws.

Perhaps disappointing to those in the closed beta, this new open beta will not feature any new content but will feature all of the same contnet. Here is what we know so far:

Maps: Heatwave and Infernal
Game Modes: 6v6 Team Deathmatch and Warpath
Demon: Revenant
Weapons: Rocket Launcher, Plasma Rifle, Super Shotgun, Vortex Rifle, Static Rifle, Heavy Assault Rifle, and Lightning Gun
Power Weapons: Gauss Cannon
Equipment: Frag Grenade, Personal Teleporter, Siphon Grenade

Our own Rae Michelle got herself in to the closed beta and not too kind words to say about it  calling it “hellishly bad” and “at odds with itself” in her review of its beta content. Hopefully another weekend with it will give her a better feeling for what is to come. Untill then make sure to keep your chainsaws running and your rocket launchers loaded! See you in Hell.
