DOOM is about to get a ton more content, and here's what's coming
The second free content update for DOOM is set to arrive on July 29, and a new trailer is here to show off all of the awesome new stuff coming to the game. In the video below, you can get a quick look at two new multiplayer game modes, Exodus and Sector, which bring a bit of capture-the-flag and base capture fun, respectively. The update also includes a number of new tools for SnapMap makers, including Hell modules and weapon wheel functionality.
The video also gives us a quick peek at the game's first batch of premium multiplayer DLC content, titled "Unto the Evil." The premium DLC pack will launch on August 5 for $15, and includes the following for DOOM multiplayer:
- Three new multiplayer maps: Offering, Cataclysm, and Ritual
- A new player-controlled demon: Harvester
- A new weapon: UAC EMG Pistol
- New equipment: Kinetic Mine
- New ways to customize your DOOM Marine, including additional armor sets, patterns, colors, and taunts
- New hack modules
All told, it looks DOOM multiplayer gamers have a lot to look forward to over the next week. And as a bonus, if you're planning to check out the free content launching on July 29, you'll also be able to take advantage of a double XP weekend running from noon ET on July 29 through noon ET on August 1.
