Bethesda.net announces a March 31st start date for closed beta testing of DOOM, saying id Software's return to the first-person shooter series is still on track for release on May 13th. They offer a new multiplayer trailer to celebrate the news, and its description offers more details:
DOOM’s multiplayer is not for the faint of heart. It’s bloody. It’s brutal. And it's VERY FAST. Prepare yourself with a glimpse into DOOM’s multiplayer mayhem in the latest trailer.

We will be running the Closed Beta between March 31 and April 3. To check eligibility requirements, please visit www.doom.com/beta.

I hate to be that guy... but they keep hyping how fast the MP is, in this press release they call it "VERY FAST"... But the video certainly doesn't show that. Looks middling.

Yeah the speed is nowhere near the TURBO speed which was kind of mandatory in MP Doom1/2. I fully expect some kind of console or server command which would up the movement speed in some way. Still, it looks faster than 90% of the MP shooters released these days. I don't want to prejudge it because it certainly looks like the best game iD has made since Quake3, I just hope it plays great too. More worrying than the movement speed, which as I said I believe will be something that can be set serverside are the weapons. In particular the BFG and the SSG, which should be the best guns in the game, but should require a ton of skill to use, just like in Doom1 and 2. Still with today's ADHD generation and their utter inability to play anything without major hand-holding, hoping for classic oldschool guns and mechanics is probably hoping too much...
