The upcoming reboot of the classic shooter Doom, in which you play a guy on Mars fighting demons who escape through a portal from Hell, isn’t just going to be about blasting the devil’s minions with a shotgun. It’ll also be about blasting other players with a shotgun.
Developer id Software dropped a new trailer on us today that reveals one particularly interesting aspect about multiplayer Doom: you’ll be able to transform into a demon and rip other players into little pieces. So that’s awesome.
There’s a closed “beta” test coming up for the game at the end of the month that will give a few lucky players an early look at how multiplayer will play. If you pre-ordered Wolfenstein: The New Order, another game from Doom publisher Bethesda, you should be all set to get into it. There’s more info on the Doom website.
For the rest of us, we’ll have to wait until May 13 to finally become the hulking unholy terror we’ve always dreamed of being.
