Following last weekend’s closed beta weekend Bethesda has announced the date for the DOOM open beta.
The open beta will run from 15-18 April and is open to all trigger-happy shooter fans. Players will be able to simply login and start playing the team Deathmatch and Warpath modes on the Heatwave and Infernal maps.
Bethesda has also revealed some of the DLC details with three premium DLC packs planned after launch. The first DLC will launch this summer and add three new maps, one new weapon, one new playable demon, one new armour set, one new piece of equipment, new hack modules and taunts, and more customisation colours and patterns to make crazy looking gear.
There will be free updates for DOOM which will include new content for their SnapMap editing tool and new game modes.
Each DLC pack will cost $14.99 / £11.99 / Euro 14.99 and there is the Season Pass which includes the lot for $39.99 / £29.99 / Euro 39.99.
