DOOM’s multiplayer will be receiving a free update soon that will add a deathmatch mode, as well private matches where players can tweak settings to their liking.
“Deathmatch brings free-for-all mayhem to DOOM’s fast-paced multiplayer, while Private Matches allow you and your friends to create private multiplayer matches where you select the maps and modes. You’ll also be able to adjust settings like the time limit, score limit, or turning demons and power weapon off or on.”
Bethesda uploaded a teaser trailer for the update along with a message that a livestream will be held on September 13th to showcase the new options coming. The stream will commence at 2:00 EST and will take place on its Twitch account.
DOOM released earlier this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Once released, it garnered an impressive 86 on Metacritic.
This news doesn’t particularly do much for me, as DOOM for me was all about the single player experience, the multiplayer was kinda meh.
