While MachineGames' shooter is cross-gen, the Doom beta will not. Bethesda has confirmed that the beta will only be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

A beta for the game formerly known as Doom 4 is included with pre-orders of Wolfenstein: The New Order. And while MachineGames' shooter is cross-gen, the Doom beta will not. Bethesda has confirmed that the beta will only be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

"DOOM beta access correlates to your pre-ordered Wolfenstein: The New Order platform," Bethesda told Gamespot. "If you purchase an Xbox 360 or Xbox One version of Wolfenstein: The New Order, you will receive an invitation to the Xbox One Doom beta. PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 purchasers will receive an invite to the PS4 Doom beta." And while the Xbox One beta will require Live Gold, the PS4 beta will not require PlayStation Plus.

The next-gen-only beta could suggest that the new Doom is targeting those consoles exclusively. However, given we've heard nothing about the game since its was mysteriously delayed, really anything is possible.

        Yeah, what they're saying is only the latest generation of the 3 main platforms, even though the game will be on current and last gen.
