DOOM’s first level is free this week, multiplayer DLC is coming


DOOM is the best shooter of the year so far. But don’t just take my word for it – Doom’s first level is free for everything to have a crack at for the next week.

What else could you want? More PC gaming news? Go on then.

Bethesda suggested the move was inspired by the DOOM franchises start in shareware, and as a result for one week only you’ll be able to play the first level for free on Steam, Xbox One and PS4 this week only

If you were waiting to see if DOOM was for you, now’s the time to wade in and have a go.

Those of you who are already devoted doomsayers, there’s good news and bad news. Good news: DLC! Bad news: it’s for the games slightly less popular multiplayer mode. DOOM is playable at Bethesda’s live event in VR tonight, alongside Fallout 4. Fallout 4 VR is coming to the Vive next year, and while there have been no similar announcements for DOOM, well… we can hope.
