Doom, the seminal first person shooter series that brought players to hell and back, is going to make a return that will be a lip smacking opportunity for gamers to relive those good old days, except in far more intricate graphical details this time around. Doom 4, if it were to follow the numerical numbering in the game’s series, will simply be called “Doom”, and the existence of Doom Beta has just been revealed by Bethesda. In fact, the beta access will be included with Wolfenstein: The New Order pre-orders. Unfortunately for the masses, Bethesda has yet to drop details on when the beta might happen, and neither do we know which particular platform will the game be introduced on. The thing is, you will need to be at least 18 years of age in order to participate, so I guess that pretty much sum up just how potentially gory the game might be.
Last April, Bethesda did mention that an earlier version of Doom 4 had been scrapped, before the project was rebooted. Bethesda’s marketing executive, Pete Hines, shared at that time, “An earlier version of Doom 4 did not exhibit the quality and excitement that id and Bethesda intend to deliver and that Doom fans worldwide expect. As a result, id refocused its efforts on a new version of Doom 4 that promises to meet the very high expectations everyone has for this game and this franchise. When we’re ready to talk about the Doom 4 id is making, we will let folks know.”
Expect Wolfenstein: The New Order to hit the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC this coming May 20th.
