Doom to add back Team Deathmatch playlists after feedback

Doom dropped a holiday surprise on fans with the game's final paid DLC Bloodfall this week, but one of the changes in the expansion didn't sit well with fans, and developer id Software is moving to rectify the issue.

As part of the pack, playlists had been cut to just two - Team Play and FFA Play - to "better aggregate players and make it faster to find a match." However, fan feedback apparently forced the dev team to rethink the move. Now, Doom will reinstitute Team Deathmatch and Deatmatch MP playlists, along with adding Team Play Mix and FFA Play Mix, id said in a tweet from the official account. The addition should happen sometime today.

The move is good news for players trying to take advantage of the extra long multiplayer XP weekend, which began early when the DLC was released on Wednesday. The extra XP will be flowing until Monday at noon ET / 9 a.m.PT as players try to hit the new max rank of Echelon 11 level 50 to unlock the new DOOM Marine Armor.
