Bethesda treats us again today with a new trailer for DOOM putting the necessary multiplayer modes of the game in the spotlight. With over six modes the game offers plenty of fun for everyone, with countless ways to kill or die. The multiplayer is fast, brutal, violent and causes the blood splattering on your screen and appearing everywhere.
You can test the modes probably in the closed beta, which will be held in early April and will be accessible with exclusive preorder of Wolfenstein: The New Order. From May 13 every interested player can then venture playing Doom’s different multiplayer modes, as on this day the shooter will appear on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
You can also find below little description on each of the game’s six modes published on the official website of Bethesda:
Soul Harvest is similar to Team Deathmatch, but instead of racking up points with every kill, players need to collect the souls of their fallen foes.
Freeze Tag plays out a lot like the real-world equivalent (minus the heavy weaponry and hellish backdrop). Rather than killing your foes, opponents are instead frozen in place –immobilized in a block of ice. Teammates can thaw their allies by standing nearby for a set amount of time.
King of the Hill gets even crazier in Warpath, where a single capture point moves around the map along a set (and clearly marked) pathway. And if that’s not enough, a demon rune marches along in lockstep – but on the opposite side of the path.
Domination includes up to three static capture points that are spread out across a map. Players spawn on different sides of the map, and can control the capture points by clearing out any enemies and standing within the designated zone. Points are earned based on how long you control a capture point.
One of the two purest takes on classic modes in DOOM multiplayer, Team Deathmatch pits two teams against each other in a straight-up kill-fest. Players can choose their loadouts, customize their marine and become the demon if they grab the rune while it’s in play.
The other pure take on a classic mode, Clan Arena is a game of elimination: the last team standing wins. All pick-ups are removed from the map, and players won’t be able to restore their health or armor. Once you’re dead, you’re dead – no respawning.
