Doom multiplayer debuts at QuakeCon 2015, alpha test kicks off soon

Doom, id Software's long-in-development reboot of its classic shooter series, will be playable by the public for the first time at QuakeCon 2015 this weekend, id's Marty Stratton announced during the show's opening presentation. At last year's QuakeCon event, attendees got to see an exclusive gameplay video from Doom, well ahead of the game's proper unveiling during Bethesda's first press conference at E3 2015.

QuakeCon 2015 attendees will get a chance to play Doom's multiplayer modes starting today, a fact that elicited no small amount of applause from the audience at today's panel. We'll have an opportunity to try the game out ourselves during the event, and will have our impressions up soon.

If you didn't get a chance to make it to QuakeCon this year, you might get a chance to play it soon — folks who purchased and registered Wolfenstein: The New Order have a small chance of getting picked to participate in the Doom multiplayer alpha test. Those invites should be sent out "soon," according to Stratton.
