Bethesda Softworks and id Software will release an update for the new Doom this Friday, July 29, that adds two new multiplayer modes and a slew of Hell-themed content for the SnapMap level creation tool.
Doom’s "Free Update 2" will introduce Exodus, a one-flag capture the flag mode, and Sector, a point-capture mode, to the first-person shooter’s multiplayer component. Both Exodus and Sector will be playable on the game’s existing maps and all future maps, Bethesda says.
SnapMap is getting a bunch of promised new features, including the single-player campaign’s weapon wheel and 30 Hell-themed modules. SnapMap is also getting a new playable demon, the Mancubus.
Doom players have a good excuse to try out the game’s new multiplayer features this weekend; Bethesda and id are holding a double XP weekend starting July 29.
Next week, there will be even more Doom. The game’s first premium multiplayer downloadable content, Unto the Evil, arrives Aug. 5. The add-on introduces three new multiplayer maps; a new player-controlled demon, the Harvester; a new weapon, the UAC EMG Pistol; new player cosmetics; and a new piece of equipment, the Kinetic Mine.
Doom: Unto the Evil costs $14.99 / £11.99 / €14.99.
