The latest Doom, by Bethesda and id Software, will gain a new Deathmatch mode, Private Matches and an arcade mode later this year. This information arrives from the official Bethesda site — detailing how the new features will work.
Fans of the new iteration of Doom will have some stuff to look forward to later this year. According to the official bethesda.net modes like Deathmatch, Private Matches and Arcade Mode will be evident, as noted below…
“Deathmatch, Private Matches, and Arcade Mode are coming to DOOM, and we’re ready to give you a first-look! Tune in for live gameplay of these three upcoming features on September 13 at 11am PT, hosted by Xbox and featuring id Software’s Marty Stratton and Hugo Martin.”
In addition to the September 13th live stream that will reveal new content, and then some, the blog details what these modes are all about and how they will operate — although it doesn’t take much to figure out what Deathmatch and Private Matches are.
Deathmatch brings free-for-all mayhem to DOOM’s fast-paced multiplayer, and arrives as part of Free Update 3 this month. Private Matches are also coming in that update, allowing you and your friends to create private multiplayer matches where you determine the maps and modes.
The blog post also reveals how settings and adjustments will play in the upcoming update. Additionally, this spans across score limits, demon power-ups, power weapons and timer options. Information regarding the new Arcade Mode also arrives in the post, too:
You’ll also be able to adjust settings like the time limit, score limit, or turning demons and power weapon off or on. Plus, we’ll be showing a sneak peek of Arcade Mode, an upcoming competitive addition to the game’s critically-acclaimed campaign mode, set to arrive in a future free update this fall.
All of the above can be seen in a new trailer that runs through the modes, courtesy of Bethesda Softworks channel.
Lastly, id Software’s Marty Stratton and Hugo Martin will be informing fans about the new update via a live-stream on September 13th, at 11am PT on the official Xbox Twitch channel.
