Doom – Release Date Announced + Trailer and CE
Bethesda revealed the new entry in the franchise at their E3 briefing last year and it was quite impressive. The single-player and multiplayer demo was one of the most memorable E3 experiences I’ve had. I remember sitting there on the balcony at the Grammy Awards theater in LA at the Bethesda’s conference in anticipation and excitement of seeing the first gameplay reveal for one of my favorite FPS games.
Today Bethesda has released a new trailer along with the biggest and most important news for the game, which is the release date. Bethesda also will be releasing a collectors edition that includes a figurine and a fancy looking limited edition packaging. Check out the trailer below to see new gameplay footage along with press release.
Here is the official press release down below
DOOM Available Worldwide May 13, 2016
“Bethesda Softworks, a ZeniMax Media company, today announced that DOOM will be available worldwide on Friday, May 13, 2016 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, and PC. DOOM, the iconic game that defined a genre and considered one of the most influential games ever made, returns as a brutally fun and challenging modern-day shooter experience.
DOOM is under development at id Software, the studio that pioneered the first-person shooter genre and invented multiplayer Deathmatch. Relentless demons, impossibly destructive guns, and fast, fluid movement provide the foundation for intense, first-person combat – whether you’re obliterating demon hordes through the depths of Hell in the single-player campaign, or competing against your friends in numerous multiplayer modes. Expand your gameplay experience using DOOM SnapMap game editor to easily create, play, and share your content with the world. DOOM garnered numerous E3 2015 awards and in a recent preview, Game Informer aptly described the gameplay as “an absolute blast.”
Bethesda also revealed plans to release a premium collector’s edition of DOOM that will be available across the globe through participating retailers. The limited DOOM collector’s edition, created in conjunction with TriForce, includes an exclusive, fully-realized 12” tall collector’s statue of one of the game’s most iconic demons: the Revenant. Modelled from actual in-game 3D files and striking in appearance, the demonic Revenant stands on an LED-lit base with internal, slow-spinning turbine from the UAC facility on Mars. The DOOM collector’s edition also includes a copy of the game packaged in an exclusive, battle-worthy metal case.
The DOOM collector’s edition is available for pre-order through participating retailers and is priced at $119.99 (US), €129.99 (Europe), and £99.99 (UK). Players pre-ordering the DOOM collector’s edition or the standard edition of the game will receive the Demon Multiplayer Pack which contains a unique demon armour set with three skin variations, six metallic paint colours and three id logo patterns that can be applied to weapons and armour, plus a set of six Hack Modules – one-time consumable items that can give you an edge in a multiplayer match.”
