Of course, we still don’t know when the beta actually is, but whatever. Baby steps, guys.
Bethesda has confirmed on its website that the upcoming beta for Doom will be on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC only. This is added to the short list of things that we do know about the Doom beta; other things include the fact that the only way to get into the beta is to pre-order the upcoming Wolfenstein: The New Order, which releases in May.
All versions of Wolfenstein, which launches on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC, will be eligible for the beta registration (with the Xbox 360 version standing in for the Xbox One version, and the PlayStation 3 version standing in for the PlayStation 4 version). A code will be included with the game, that needs to be redeemed for the registration to go into effect.
Bethesda also assures everyone that the digital versions will be supported towards this as well.
“We are working with Steam, Microsoft, and Sony to help ensure that persons pre-ordering digitally from Steam, Microsoft and Sony will receive access to the Doom beta,” they said.
“Other digital retailers’ processes and/or participation may vary. We suggest contacting your preferred retailer directly for additional information.”
Of course, possibly the most important thing- when this beta begins- is still a complete and total mystery, and Bethesda won’t say.
Trade secrecy, I tell you.
