DOOM will ship with nine multiplayer maps set on Mars and in Hell

Multiplayer fans will get to play on nine maps in the upcoming reboot of the DOOM first person shooter series for the Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4. Developer id Software and publisher Bethesda Softworks showed off all nine maps in a new trailer for the game.

Here's what players can expect from DOOM's multiplayer levels:

  • Excavation. A modest-sized UAC mining outpost. Watch out for the rock grinder!
  • Infernal. A mid-sized Hell map with both interior and exterior elements. Lots of platforms and chasms, along with teleporters.
  • Chasm. This massive map takes you deep below the polar ice caps of Mars. A great place to play Freeze Tag.
  • Disposal. This smaller map is the main waste processing facility for the UAC research and residential complexes. Unsurprisingly, it's full of radioactive slime.
  • Helix. This is where they experiment on demons and develop advanced weaponry. Which, naturally, makes it perfect for a quick round of Clan Arena.
  • Perdition. Disjointed and sadistic, this ancient arena is populated by the agonized moans of unfortunate souls who have suffered within its realm.
  • Sacrilegious. Set within a fracture of Hell, this map offers clear lines of sight. Move fast… or die faster.
  • Heatwave. An industrial UAC facility with glistening halls that will soon be slicked with human (and demon) blood.
  • Beneath. Before being beamed to Earth, the energies of Hell are harnessed in this symmetrical and cavernous location.

Bethesda adds that some of the maps will have some classic first-person shooter features like teleporters, jump pads, radioactive slime and, yes, lava. The closed multiplayer beta test for DOOM will feature two of these levels, Heatwave and Infernal, when it is run from March 31 to April 3. The full game comes out on May 13, with the Xbox One version available to pre-order from the Microsoft Store for $59.99.
