Doom is getting all-new content for SnapMap and multiplayer

id Software outlines what's coming to Doom

Doom is getting a slew of new content and "new ways to play," id Software's Marty Stratton announced at Bethesda Softworks' pre-E3 press conference today.

The game's SnapMap tool will get new construction models, a new Hell visual theme, as well as new props, weapons and other items. Doom SnapMap will also get new logic options that will help enable "true single-player experiences" and bring the campaign's weapon wheel over.

Doom's competitive multiplayer mode will soon get new game types, including one-flag CTF mode Exodus and a capture-and-hold mode called Sector. id Software also plans to add new free-for-all modes, including classic deathmatch.

The game's first premium downloadable content will be called Unto The Evil. It will bring with it new multiplayer maps, a new playable demon called the Harvester as well as a new gun and armor.

Publisher Bethesda Softworks announced in early April that Doom would receive a mix of free and paid additions. Those include three multiplayer DLC packs for $14.99 each — or $39.99 as part of Doom's season pass.

For more on Doom, which arrived on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC May 13, you can read our review, which said that "id has done a pretty great job in making something that feels familiar and fresh, and, most importantly, pretty damned fun."
