Gamers that pre-ordered or bought Wolfenstein: The New Order on or before May 26th, 2014 to be eligible for the DOOM Beta. Will be excited to learn that Bethesda has today started sending out Do Alpha invites to those eligible.
The announcement of the Doom Alpha Invites was made via Twitter and more information has been published over on the official Doom website. So if you are one of those that have pre-ordered jump over to select your platform from Xbox One, PS4 and PC and follow the steps listed.
To ensure you are eligible to be selected for the Doom closed alpha testing phase. Bethesda explains a little more :
The DOOM MP Closed Alpha is a series of development-driven tests designed to stress test the game’s dedicated server infrastructure in a real-world consumer environment. It is not the Beta (offered with Wolfenstein: The New Order pre-order), a demo, or representative of the final game.
*While the Beta and the full game will be available in multiple languages, the Closed Alpha is an English-only test.
Doom Closed Alpha Gameplay Features :
ONE MAP: HEATWAVE – The Alpha will feature 1 multiplayer map: Heatwave. This industrial-themed map will place players in an arena setting featuring plenty of armor, ammo, and health pickups. Narrow corridors, walkways and small chambers all link to a central, open area of the map, providing players with a variety of environments that suit varying playstyles, as well as the focus point for fighting over key power-ups.
ONE MODE: 6V6 TEAM DEATHMATCH – Welcome to the core of DOOM’s arena-style multiplayer combat. In this mode, two teams of 6 players will try to dominate each other by fighting over the Revenant and Gauss Rifle power-ups, which provide devastating firepower that can turn the tide or ensure victory.
ONE DEMON: REVENANT – Being the first player to the Demon Rune will transform you into the powerful Revenant. Use your jetpack and dual rocket launchers to hunt down the other team for a limited time to either secure your team’s lead or mount a comeback.
ONE POWER WEAPON: GAUSS CANNON – Available as a counter to the Revenant, this high-powered weapon destroys opponents in one blast. Use the alternate fire to see your targets through walls, but be warned, there is a limited number of shots, so use it to take down the demon rather than enemy players. Once you’re out of ammo, you have to wait for it to appear on the map again.
6 WEAPONS, 2 EQUIPMENT ITEMS – The Closed Alpha will feature a limited arsenal of weapons and items featured in the complete game. They can be used both in standard and customizable loadouts.
• Vortex Rifle
• Super Shotgun
• Rocket Launcher
• Static Cannon
• Plasma Rifle
• Personal Teleporter
• Frag Grenade
