Doom Beta coming in 2016 but a lucky few will be invited to participate in this Fall’s Alpha


QuakeCon is the place to be this weekend. But don’t worry if you couldn’t make it down to Dallas, Bethesda is using their annual game convention to deliver some news on all their upcoming releases.

Bad news for Doom fans who were hoping to get their hands on the Multiplayer Beta before the end of the year, Bethesda has confirmed it’ll take place in 2016. However, they will also be holding a special Alpha Test later this Fall… and you may already be invited.

According to the Bethesda Blog, participants for the Alpha Test will be randomly selected from the list of players who have already registered their Doom Beta code. If you recall, everyone who pre-ordered Wolfenstein: The New Order before its release last year received a Beta invite. If you haven’t already done so, make sure you visit and redeem the Beta code included in the box to gain a chance at entering the Alpha.

Doom will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One next Spring. Hopefully, we’ll get another look at the game during this weekend’s QuakeCon.
