id will be launching the DOOM free Update 2 on 29 July which is tomorrow, and there’s plenty for DOOM players to look forward to.
In this latest update, two new multiplayer modes are being added. Exodus is the new capture the flag mode with constantly moving bases and flags. Sector is the objective-based capture-and-hold mode where players hold zones to win points.
SnapMap updates include customisable weapon wheel functionality, jump pads with logic to set distance, speed and direction. There’s also 30 brand-new Hell-themed modules, an expanded weapon list, and a new playable demon – the Mancubus.
This weekend there will also be a double XP weekend to celebrate QuakeCon.
