DOOM First Update Will Include Photo Mode, New Snapmap Features, Multiplayer Update Coming Today
The new entry of the DOOM has been released a few weeks ago in all regions, and the game managed to become quite successful in a short amount of time. Despite the game's success, id Software is not yet done with DOOM, and a full-blown update will be released later this month, introducing a variety of new features and improvements.
Earlier today, publisher Bethesda confirmed that the first DOOM update will include plenty of new content, such as a Photo Mode for taking screenshots, a Classic DOOM weapon placements and view model option, new Snapmad features and more. Full patch notes will be made available at a later time.
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).
Those who are enjoying the DOOM's multiplayer portion will be able to enjoy some balance changes very soon, as a multiplayer focused update will be released later today. The update will be a server-side update, so players won't have to download anything.
In the meantime, today we are releasing a multiplayer improvement update for DOOM. This includes rebalancing of some multiplayer weapons based on your feedback: the Chaingun, Rocket Launcher, and Combat Shotgun. This update will also reduce the wait time between matches to 60 seconds. Last but not least, Clan Arena and Freeze Tag will now require the winning team to complete 5 rounds in order to win the match. The multiplayer improvement update will begin today at 10:30 ET —this is a server-side update, and will not require a download, though it will require a server outage, which we anticipate will be about an hour.
DOOM is now available in all regions on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
