DOOM open beta on PS4, Xbox One, PC without code

This weekend saw the launch of the DOOM open beta which allowed anyone on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One experience and help test the multiplayer mode for the upcoming shooter, and let's just say, it's not looking good. The Doom open beta, which contains two play modes, two maps, a handful of weapons and a wealth of character customization options, was initially supposed to shut down on the 17th of April. Open beta players were able to choose between lightning guns, plasma rifles, shotguns, and rocket launchers.

The other mode players can try out during the "Doom" open beta is the Warpath, a revamped version of the King of the Hill mode.

Doom releases on May 13 worldwide for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

In terms of multiplayer, well, the truth is I really didn't enjoy the majority of my time with the Doom closed beta. But before it could officially make its way to gaming platforms, Bethesda sent out the fans to an early treat by kicking off an open beta. Doom was suppose to be taking this series back to its roots but it looks like at least its beta isn't taking it anywhere. It's another generic, modern military shooter with a hellish look. Every gamer, no matter where they are, deserves to play the classic game, after all.

The game also features unlockables that affect the gameplay in the form of Hack Modules and Equipment. Seize this chance and fight like hell in the Doom Game.

Much like Call of Duty's prestige system, Doom's progression features two branches. Even the highest rated positive review concluded that there were definitely technical issues, and that while the game was enjoyable, overall it was a mixed bag with the open beta not sealing a buying deal. "This year's COD was more ambitious and innovative than this DOOMs multiplayer, that's a sad thought".

Equally you're only saving yourself the better part of £6.78 if you were to download the games right now on.
