DOOM Beta Will Only Be Playable On PS4, Xbox One And PC
Well, by the time it arrives, you'll definitely have one of the next-gen consoles, right?
Today, Bethesda has confirmed that the upcoming public beta for the new DOOM entry will only be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Pre-ordering a copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order will get you into the test.
The latest Wolfenstein installment will launch for the PS3 and Xbox 360 as well, though, so how will that work? Simple, really: Pre-order the PS3 version, get the PS4 iteration of the DOOM beta; pre-order the 360 version, play the DOOM beta on the Xbox One. All PC purchases will receive an invite to the PC DOOM beta. As for the beta itself, we really don't know much about it, mostly because we don't know anything about the game in question.
Last year, Bethesda went on record saying that DOOM 4 had been canceled and the project had to be rebooted. Ever since then, we've heard nothing about it...which is a little weird when we're talking about a beta. As for The New Order, that's set to launch on consoles and PC on May 20.
