More information about the latest DOOM entry has been revealed, courtesy of the development team over at id Software.

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.

In addition, the game will receive a decent amount of post-launch content in the form of free content updates across SnapMap and multiplayer. According to the development team:

“[SnapMap is an…] innovative new component of DOOM designed to make creating, sharing and playing new game experiences fast and easy. On top of being able to access and play new modes and maps created by fellow gamers, id plans to offer content updates for SnapMap, including map modules; props and objects; additional features and functionality; AI enhancements; editing tool enhancements and more. 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.

DOOM will launch on May 13, 2016 for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
