Check out some old school Deathmatch that's coming in the new DOOM game

Developer id Software and publisher Bethesda Softworks have released a brief trailer showing off old school Deathmatch multiplayer footage in the new DOOM game. The mode will be added as a free update for the revamped first-person shooter later in September.

Bethesda plans to host a livestream to show off more of the new-old DOOM Deathmatch mode on Sept. 13 at 2 p.m. Eastern time on the Twitch Xbox channel. It will also show off some other upcoming free features for Doom:

Private Matches are also coming in that update, allowing you and your friends to create private multiplayer matches where you determine the maps and modes. You'll also be able to adjust settings like the time limit, score limit, or turning demons and power weapon off or on. Plus, you'll see a sneak peek of Arcade Mode, an upcoming competitive addition to the game's critically acclaimed campaign mode, set to arrive in a future free update this fall.

If you tune in to the Twitch livestream, you might also win signed copies of DOOM for Xbox One, or even a custom DOOM UAC Xbox One console. You can buy DOOM right now for Microsoft's console for $34.88 (opens in new tab) at Amazon.

  • From that, I can't tell what makes it different than the Team Deathmatch we have now. Is it just free-for-all?
  • Deathmatch(yes, known as free-for-all now) is all that was in the original doom yet it was the game mode missing in the new doom.
  • Give us some classic deathmatch maps from past games, E1M1, Map01, Map07 or some of the Dwango maps if possible
