id Software’s new shooter arrives May 13 for Xbox one, PlayStation 4, and PC; preorder bonuses also announced.
Bethesda announced today that id Software’s long-in-development new Doom game will launch globally on May 13. It will arrive on that date for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A new trailer was also released today.
You won’t have to wait that long to play the game, as a beta will be held before launch. However, there is no word yet on when this will begin. Asked to provide an update on the beta, a Bethesda representative told GameSpot that details will be announced at a later date.
The publisher also has announced a Doom collector’s edition, the centerpiece of which is a 12″ statue of one of the game’s baddest demons: the Revenant. The figure was made by TriForce, which used actual game files from id Software to nail the creature’s look. The beast stands on an LED-lit base and should frighten anyone who comes by your desk.
Doom’s collector’s edition, which will sell for $120, also comes with a copy of the game in a metal case.
Bethesda also today announced preorder bonuses for Doom. Everyone who preorders the shooter gets the Demon Multiplayer Pack. This comes with a demon armor set, which itself features three skin variations, six paint colors, and three id Software patterns to put on your armor and weapons. It also packs in six “Hack Modules,” consumable items that can be used in game to give you an edge in the arena.
It’s been a long time coming for Doom. Following a failed first attempt at designing a Call of Duty-inspired Doom reboot, Bethesda restarted the project with more of a traditional concept at its core.
