Doom 6.66 update brings free DLC and a multi-platform free weekend

Doom 6.66 update brings free DLC and a multi-platform free weekend”

But the big news is that all the multiplayer DLC is now unlocked, as the season pass has officially been eliminated. The content now available for all includes "nine of our best maps, three additional guns, three additional playable demons, new equipment, armour sets and more".

The new update, which is now available to download on PS4, Xbox One and PC, will also change the kill notification system to improve multiplayer experience and replace Hack Modules with Runes which can be equipped and are persistent.

The UI will now show off better post-match summaries, player status in lobbies, new progression options/status, and better outline weapon, equipment and demon characteristics. Instead of unlocks being a randomized dice roll, you'll now be able to unlock items through specific leveling requirements and in-game challenges.

Europe close: Stocks dip as ECB's Draghi dashes hopes for policy change
Attention now switches to European Central Bank president Mario Draghi's news conference, at which he will explain the decision. Earlier, the pound had been buoyed by better than expected official figures on retail sales for June, before the gains faded.

On the other hand, the Runes System enhances player abilities, but can be persistently equipped, which was not possible with the previous system. The free weekend comes with access to two levels of DOOM's campaign, Arcade Mode and unlimited access in multiplayer and SnapMap modes.

The game never had any single-player DLC as all of the paid content was specific to the game's multiplayer modes.

The changed progression system in Doom allows for players to get items based on their accomplishments.

He continued: "If this is not the case, if Washington decides not to solve this issue, we will have to take counter actions". Moscow did not retaliate, saying it would wait to see if relations improved under the incoming USA president, Donald Trump .

And speaking of buying Doom, it will now be sold for $15. Those who have achieved max Slayer level for example, a special designated Slayer badge is granted.

Doom is also being offered for half price on Xbox One ($19.98 AUD) and PS4 ($17.95 AUD).

"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". Longtime players will want to know that their levels will be resetting to zero. PC and Xbox players can start shooting demons on July 20, while Ps4 players have to wait until July 27. If you purchase during this free weekend all your progress will be saved to continue in the full game.
