DOOM – Next update will bring new Photo Mode, Classic DOOM weapon placement & Snapmap features

Bethesda has announced some of the key features that will be included in the next update for DOOM. According to the publisher, DOOM’s next update will include several improvements and will introduce a new Photo Mode, as well as a Classic DOOM weapon placement/view model option.

Here are the key features of the next update for DOOM:

  • Added Photo Mode for taking in-game screenshots
  • Added Classic DOOM weapon placement/view model option (1st person view option)
  • Added new Snapmap features (including skybox windows) and AI pathing and logic fixes.
  • Fixed various bugs including players accidentally triggering Dev Mode and Trophy/Achievement bugs (IDKFA, Every Nook and Cranny).

In addition, id Software has released an update for DOOM that brings a number of multiplayer improvements.

This latest update (that was released yesterday) includes rebalancing of some multiplayer weapons based on players’ feedback: the Chaingun, Rocket Launcher, and Combat Shotgun. Moreover, this update reduces the wait time between matches to 60 seconds.

Last but not least, via this update, both Clan Arena and Freeze Tag will now require the winning team to complete 5 rounds in order to win the match.
