During Bethesda’s E3 2016 press conference, game developer id Software reveals its plans for a premium DLC pack and free summer updates for its first-person shooter DOOM.
Those fans looking to extend their single-player campaign experiences in the highly revered DOOM will be able to do so in a short amount of time, for id Software’s first piece of premium DLC for the shooter is called Unto the Evil, and it is due out next month. For those who may have missed Bethesda’s E3 2016 showcase, the Executive Producer for id Software, Marty Stratton, revealed that the add-on package will contain three new maps—Offering, Cataclysm, and Ritual—and will also incorporate a newly playable demon called The Harvester.
Interestingly enough, id Software is not only content to bring fresh maps to DOOM, but it also wants to deck players out with new gear, equipment items, taunts, and even more. However, developers have yet to divulge all of the details involving exactly what kind of objects and moves fans will be able to wield once the expansion becomes available.
Not to mention, as seen in the footage below, DOOM‘s Executive Producer explains that developers will be supporting the first-person shooter’s level building feature called SnapMap with free updates this summer, such as new construction modules, props, weapons, and items. Furthermore, map creators will be able to utilize freshly implemented logic options and functionalities in order to create “true single-player experiences.”
As begun with DOOM‘s recent multiplayer update and improvements, id Software also announced a lot of free additions coming to the mode, with one being a capture the flag variant known as Hexodus, and a hold mode called Sector. Also, there will be three free-for-all modes coming in the summer, and of course, classic death match to boot.
With all of these features and more planned for DOOM‘s multiplayer and solo experience, it seems as if id Software is intent on earning the rave reviews it received prior to its launch all over again. Plus, we ought to see even more materials revealed later this year once the studio hosts the game at its forthcoming QuakeCon event.
