Bethesda Softworks today announced that DOOM will be available worldwide on Friday, May 13, 2016 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 , 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 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ whether youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 SnapMapÃ¢â€žÂ¢ 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 Ã¢â‚¬Å“an absolute blast.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Bethesda also revealed plans to release a premium collectorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s edition of DOOM that will be available across the globe through participating retailers. The limited DOOM collectorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s edition, created in conjunction with TriForce, includes an exclusive, fully-realized 12Ã¢â‚¬Â tall collectorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s statue of one of the gameÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s most iconic demons: the Revenant. Modeled 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 collectorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s edition also includes a copy of the game packaged in an exclusive, battle-worthy metal case.
The DOOM collectorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s edition is available for pre-order through participating retailers and is priced at $119.99 (US), Ã¢â€šÂ¬129.99 (Europe), and Ã‚Â£99.99 (UK). Players pre-ordering the DOOM collectorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s edition or the standard edition of the game will receive the Demon Multiplayer Pack which contains a unique demon armor set with three skin variations, six metallic paint colors and three idÃ‚Â® logo patterns that can be applied to weapons and armor, plus a set of six Hack Modules Ã¢â‚¬â€œ one-time consumable items that can give you an edge in a multiplayer match.
