DOOM Receiving Deathmatch, Private Matches, Arcade Mode in Free Updates
Stream scheduled for September 13th.
Id Software continues to update DOOM with new multiplayer modes with publisher Bethesda recently announcing the addition of private matches, Deathmatch and Arcade Mode in upcoming free updates. These features will be showcased in a stream on September 13th, 11 AM PT with id Software’s Marty Stratton and Hugo Martin on board, discussing the same.
As for the modes in general, Deathmatch is essentially free-for-all, thus allowing players to fight solo and without a steam. Private matches will allow players to set matches and tweak various settings like the time limit, score limit, power weapons, Demon Runes and more. As for Arcade Mode, it’s been described as “an upcoming competitive addition to the game’s critically acclaimed campaign mode.”
While Deathmatch and private matches arrive in Free Update 3 this month, Arcade Mode will arrive this Fall in a different free update. Thus far, DOOM has already received one paid DLC – Unto the Evil – and two new multiplayer modes along with SnapMap. What are your thoughts on it thus far? Let us know below.
