With the DOOM open beta finally upon us, it is now available for everyone to test it and see if it’s worth the money. Giving fans the opportunity to play the brutally fun and challenging shooter weeks before its release.
The multiplayer beta allows you to test a few maps, Heatwave and Infernal, and two modes, Team Deathmatch and Warpath, along with never-before-seen weapons, armor sets, taunts and hack modules. But it seems not everyone is happy regarding the beta.
The Doom open beta has received a 37 % approval rating on steam. Main complaints regarding the Doom open beta, are that the game feels too generic and too similar to Halo/Call of Duty in the eyes of the long term fans who have been waiting a lot to put their hands on this long anticipated reboot.
While major gameplay changes cannot be expected this far in, it remains to be seen if some of the issues can be resolved.
Doom is releasing on 13 May, 2016 for PC, XBox One and Playstation 4.
