Bethesda Unlocks All DLC for Doom, Drops Price of Game to $15

Doom Update 6.66 Today Makes All Multiplayer DLC Free, Adds New Progression System

First off, Update 6.66 brings various changes to the game, offering improvements to multiplayer and SnapMap as well as many bug fixes.

Bethesda's other major change for Doom in 6.66 is that the game's Season Pass has now been retired. These include, in total, nine whole maps, three weapons, and playable demons - not to mention armor customization options and special abilities. The Season Pass used to set consumers back £29.99, or £11.49 to buy each pack individually.

New Rune System - The all-new Runes replace the Hack Module system. To signify this version Bethesda has reset all multiplayer progression to zero, announced a free weekend for folks who've yet to dive in, and also announced that all multiplayer DLC will be free, forever.

Doom is also being offered for half price on Xbox One ($19.98 AUD) and PS4 ($17.95 AUD). Instead of relying on the random distribution of unlocks, items now unlock through specific levelling requirements or through in-game challenges that the player can complete.

Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. If going the latter route, the revised progression system will be in effect for any remaining items that players have not yet acquired. This change will affect everyone, including veteran players. Veteran players will also be receiving a special badge, and anyone who has made it to the max Slayer level will get recognized with a badge for that as well. Runes don't need to be activated and don't expire, so your unlocked perks will stay with you and can now become a consistent part of your play strategy. The Free Trial weekend for Xbox and Steam users starts tomorrow, running from July 19 - July 23, while PlayStation users will get theirs next week, from July 27 - July 30. If you purchase during this free weekend all your progress will be saved to continue in the full game.

But wait...there's more! Bethesda is also lowering the price of the game to fully entice players.

If you're someone who just hasn't tried DOOM yet, we're giving you the ultimate opportunity to try out one of the most talked about games of 2016.
