The Doom Unto the Evil expansion is out now, a day earlier than expected thanks to QuakeCon. So Bethesda is offering another glimpse at what is added to the multiplayer experience of the game.

It's all in the video, along with plenty of gameplay, but we'll do a quick recap for you:

  • Three maps: Offering, Cataclysm, and Ritual
  • New weapon: UAC EMG Pistol
  • New equipment: Kinetic Mine
  • New playable demon: the Harvester
  • More armor sets, colors, patterms and taunts.
  • New hacks

In addition, when playing multiplayer, only one person in the group is required to have the DLC to play. Betehsda is also kicking off a double XP weekend that will run until noon ET on August 8.

      Would love to see some numbers on how popular MP is between PC and consoles. I actually didn't hate it like everyone else on here. Thought it was both enjoyable and disappointing at the same time.

        It was extremely generic. It's a let-down from the promise of classic Doom MP and the SP game, but the real problem for me was that it was so bland. I didn't hate it, but I would never choose to play it.

        See this comment all the time and it makes me frown. Firstly they announced and sold the season pass way before the game released. Do you really expect them to just throw away all the work they had done and refund everyone? Secondly do you really think they don't have people working on an expansion pack? I highly doubt they have the entirety of id working on MP DLC.

            Then what exactly did you mean by "they should pivot their efforts to the good parts."?

            Everyone had the opportunity to see how crap the MP was before the game released with the open beta.
            Believe it or not there are people that actually enjoy the MP and judging about how easy it was to get into a game with the new maps there are more than just a few of them. So saying they should jettison the multiplayer because you don't is pretty asinine.

                You really make a lot of assumptions without backing them up.
                You don't know that they aren't making money on the DLC and state the MP player base is dead.
                Now it's anecdotal but I never have a hard time finding a game which is something that happened to me in Titanfall PC. I won't lie, I was worried that only a handful of people would have had the DLC too but I've already had more games on the new map that I thought I would have.

                Why is it that everyone assumes that single player content is not happening because of multiplayer DLC? If anything id is wasting it's resources on snapmap. But no one even shits on that even though it seems to be the weakest part of the package and there appears to be a lot of effort going into if you consider that last two updates. Anyway. Maybe id prove you wrong and turn around the perceptions with the FFA modes that are coming later this summer.
