Wolfenstein: The New Order preorders come with Doom beta access

Wolfenstein: The New Order pre-orders come with Doom beta access

Wolfenstein: The New Order is out now; here’s our Wolfenstein: The New Order review.

Wolfenstein is available for preorder. But that fact is somewhat dwarfed by the fact that pre-ordering it will also secure you access to Doom. It’s not often that you hear next to nothing about a game until access to it appears alongside a pre-order for something entirely different. 

Note that it’s “Doom” and not “Doom 4”. Maybe it is actually Doom 4 but someone over at id or Bethesda decided that numbers had become passe. But there’s already a Doom sans number, so maybe they should have called Doom: The Doomliest or something to that effect.

So what’s the latest entry in the venerable series all about then? Who knows. The FAQ on the Wolfenstein site is extremely vague. “We will be providing more information on the specific content and duration of the beta test at a later time,” it says.

Last year was the 20 (gosh) year anniversary of the series, which would have been a serendipitous time to make an announcement, but at least we can now be sure it exists and it’s far enough along so that id are considering the beta phase.

Thankfully we know a lot more about Wolfenstein: The New Order, including that it’s coming out next month, March 20th in the US and 23rd for us Europeans. TIm hadfun with it when he played last year, drawing cocks on crates with lasers.
