Bethesda have today confirmed a May 13th, 2016 release date for DOOM on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. As well as announcing a release date for the highly anticipated reboot, Bethesda have also revealed details for the Premium Collectors Edition and released a new campaign trailer for the franchises latest offering.
Developed by id Software, the studio lauded for pioneering the first-person shooter genre and invented multiplayer Deathmatch, DOOM is jam packed with gorgeously horrific and relentless demons, impossibly destructive guns, and quick, fluid movement. DOOM provides the foundation for gory and intense, first-person combat, whether you’re obliterating demon hordes through the depths of Hell in the single-player campaign, or competing against your friends in numerous multiplayer modes. Players can also expand their gameplay experience using DOOM’s SnapMap game editor to easily create, play, and share your content with the world.
Bethesda also today revealed plans to release a premium collector’s edition of DOOM. The limited DOOM collector’s edition, which is created in conjunction with TriForce, includes an exclusive, 12 inch tall collector’s statue of one of the game’s most iconic demons: the Revenant. Modeled from actual in-game 3D files and striking in appearance, the demonic Revenant stands on an LED-lit base with internal, slow-spinning turbine from the UAC facility on Mars. The DOOM collector’s edition also includes a copy of the game packaged in an exclusive, battle-worthy metal case.
The DOOM collector’s edition is available for pre-order through participating retailers and is priced at $119.99 (US), €129.99 (Europe), and £99.99 (UK). Players pre-ordering the DOOM collector’s edition or the standard edition of the game will receive the Demon Multiplayer Pack which contains a unique demon armour set with three skin variations, six metallic paint colours and three id logo patterns that can be applied to weapons and armour, plus a set of six Hack Modules – one-time consumable items that can give you an edge in a multiplayer match.
