Earlier today, live on stage at Bethesda's E3 Press Conference, details were revealed about how players will be spending their time in Doom's multiplayer when the it launches sometime during Autumn in New Zealand next year (Spring in North America) on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
Three modes make up the built-in multiplayer options; Domination, Freeze tag, and Clan Arena. Few other details were revealed about the modes themselves, but during a demonstration video, footage was shown of the fast paced action and gore-filled violence displayed in the single-player portion of the game. The demonstration also showed a very special power-up that appears to be unique to the game's multiplayer.
During the footage you see a player controlled space marine run over a glowing power-up floating in the map, which then transformed the player into a demon. In this state, the marine appeared to be able to use a jet pack, hurl fireballs, and viciously attack with their claws.
Only one map was shown off during the conference, a UAC (Union Aerospace Corporation) facility. No word as to whether maps will be set in Hell, but we will keep you informed should we discover more regarding the multiplayer levels.
Interestingly, no mention was made regarding the Doom Beta that was included with copies of Wolfenstein: The New Order last year. Doom is set to launch on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC sometime in New Zealand's Autumn 2016 (Spring 2016 in North America), so we expect to hear more regarding the Beta in the coming weeks and months as we draw closer to the release.
