Yes Doom is alive and kicking and you can play Doom 4 beta by pre-ordering Wolfenstein: The New Order that will only be available to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
The Doom 4 beta is being offered as a pre-order incentive for Wolfenstein with all versions of the game, including PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. However, PS3 players will be given access to the PS4 beta, while Xbox 360 owners will get Xbox One beta access.
To play Doom 4 betayou must have an Xbox Live Gold subscription to access the beta on Xbox One, but a PlayStation Plus subscription is not necessary for the beta on PS4. As for players who digitally pre-order their copy of Wolfenstein, id Software is working to ensure that these players also get access to the beta as well.
Currently there is no set date for the launch of the Doom 4 beta. Bethesda has yet to officially announced this new Doom and there are no details on platforms. MachineGames’ Wolfenstein: The New Order is due out on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 on 23rd May 2014, so the beta won’t be available until some point after then.
The news comes at the end of a new trailer for Wolfenstein, below. According to Bethesda an insert will be included inside your boxed copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order. This insert will include a key code along with code redemption instructions. Once the key code is redeemed, you’ll be registered to participate in the Doom beta once it begins.
To redeem your code, once you’ve received your boxed copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order, return to wolfenstein.com/doom and follow the code redemption instructions located on the enclosed Doom beta insert. Once you enter your code you will be asked to provide a valid email address. Bethesda will then contact you at a later date through the email address provided with further instructions.
