Open to all, DOOM’s Open Beta will run from April 15-18, 2016. Players will be able to access Team Deathmatch and Warpath on the Heatwave and Infernal maps.

Multiplayer will also receive content updates in the form of new game modes. Both of these SnapMap and multiplayer updates will be free to use and play.”
Finally, there will be three premium multiplayer DLC packs released after launch, which offer new maps, hack modules, playable demons and weapons.
