Become part of The Resistance in Wolfenstein II’s awesome Launch Trailer… Doom officially launches for the Switch on November 10

Captain America rather famously socked Adolf Hitler in the jaw back in the 1940s, but Wolfenstein’s BJ Blazkowicz has a more extreme reaction to finding Nazis on American soil in an alternate 1960s. And Blazkowicz’s love of heavy artillery is actually rather similar to Doomguy’s reaction to the forces of Hell on Mars, which will be available for Switch owners very soon.

You can find Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus‘s Launch Trailer and Doom‘s launch date on the Switch after the break. (more…)

Doom’s Update 6.66 includes improvements to multiplayer and makes all DLC free

In a callback to the franchise’s earliest days, Bethesda and id Software are calling Doom‘s new Update 6.66 the “Ultimate” way to play.

The biggest addition in Update 6.66 is that it’ll make Doom’s three downloadable expansions (Unto the Evil, Hell Followed, and Bloodfall) free for all players. But id Software has also revamped the way players will experience the game’s multiplayer modes, including a complete revision of the Multiplayer Progression System. The developer has also ditched the Hack Module System (and replaced it with multiplayer-specific Runes), redone the user interface, and made vast improvements to the SnapMap creation tool.

More details about the changes that Update 6.66 will bring to the game are available at Bethesda.net, as well as in the new trailer embedded above:

With this update, we’ve changed when and how players unlock additional guns, demons, equipment and all of the player and weapon customization options. Instead of relying on the current random unlock system, everything now unlocks through specific leveling requirements and/or in-game challenges. Now, if there’s a specific helmet you want, you can work toward unlocking it by focusing your play style on the related challenge. We’re confident new and veteran players alike will enjoy the control and predictability in this new multiplayer progression system.

If Doom is still on your digital wishlist, Bethesda and id Software have one last piece of good news… Doom will now be available to download through the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store, and Steam for just $14.99.
