DOOM Second Update Launching Tomorrow Includes Two New Multiplayer Modes, Multiplayer DLC Coming Next Week
Earlier this month, id Software released a new DOOM update which added Vulkan support to the PC version of the game. However the team is hardly done with new updates, as another one will hit the game on all formats introducing some brand new features.
The new DOOM update will introduce two brand new multiplayer modes called Exodus and Sector. Alongside the new modes, the update will include new capabilities for SnapMap and more.
This week on July 29, we look forward to releasing Free Update 2, which includes two new multiplayer game modes. Exodus is a one-flag capture-the-flag mode with an added twist of constantly moving bases and flags. Sector is an objective-based capture-and-hold mode where players compete to take control of zones and then hold them to score points. Both modes can be played on any existing or future maps. This update also adds some tremendous tools and fun new capabilities for SnapMap fans, including: customizable weapon wheel functionality – so players can carry and select multiple weapons, just like the campaign; jump pads with logic to set distance, speed and direction; 30 brand-new Hell-themed modules; an expanded weapon list; a new playable demon – the Mancubus – as well as a laundry list of improvements to the Community HUB, editor and logic capabilities. Check back here early next week for a detailed list of additions and changes. These new modes and all of the SnapMap content and updates are free to all players.
The DOOM news don't end here. Today it's also been confirmed the game's first multiplayer DLC pack, called Unto the Evil, will be released next week. It will include three new multiplayer maps, a new playable demon called The Harvester a new wepaon and more.
DOOM is now available in all regions on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The new update will launch tomorrow on all formats and in all regions.
