It’s happening everyone. Alongside the new gameplay trailer for Wolfenstein: The New Order, Bethesda revealed the game’s release date as well as a bonus pre-order. So first things first, this new Wolfenstein title will hit platforms (Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC) on May 23rd.
The big surprise here is that by pre-ordering Wolfenstein: The New Order, players will be invited to access the DOOM beta the moment it becomes available. Yeap, you read that right. DOOM is happening and from the looks of it, it might be a remake or something like that.
According to Wolfenstein: The New Order’s FAQ page, the only announced beta phase for the new Doom title will be this one. The company hints at additional beta tests, although nothing is set on stone as of yet.
“Timing and availability of future beta programs for DOOM is to be determined. The only current way to ensure access is through pre-ordering Wolfenstein: The New Order. We will be providing more information on additional beta tests, if any, at a later time.”
So there you have it, DOOM is still alive. Question now is whether Bethesda will reveal anything at all during this year’s QuakeCon or not.
