DOOM Open Beta Opens

Steam News announces the multiplayer DOOM Open Beta is now available to play for free. Here's word on this weekend-long sample of id's return to their second shooter franchise:
In the DOOM Multiplayer Beta, fans will have the opportunity to play the brutally fun and challenging shooter weeks before its release. The Beta will feature two maps, Heatwave and Infernal, and two modes, Team Deathmatch and Warpath, along with never-before-seen weapons, armor sets, taunts and hack modules.

The Beta will run from April 15 at 12:00 AM EST to April 17 11:59 PM EST.

How has no one mentioned this yet? Call yourselves #MasterRace?

The game is CAPPED AT 60 FPS. On an engine level. No way to disable it.

I played one round, went 21-3, then immediately uninstalled.

Fucking console GARBAGE. it's 2016. anyone who buys this game for PC needs to be publicly humiliated.

^ this

... and add to this the fucking retarded UNSKIPPABLE intro logos and screens, of which there aren't just the usual two or three but more like a dozen or so (technical disclaimer, id logo, Bethesda logo, nVidia logo, legal disclaimer, beta disclaimer, epilepsy warning) and you have a technically inept console garbage clusterfuck of the most epic proportions on yer hands. Fuck this game. Toilet. Flush. Buh-bye.

Well, it sounds like we finally reached this point in time with DOOM: If Quake was made today...

And some of you thought it was a joke.

at this point probably the only saving grace is that the single player is being made by an entirely different team than the multiplayer.

Also, the SLI support was supposed to be fixed with a "hotfix" that nvidia released yesterday. Though with how the graphics in this beta are about on par with xbox 360, i dont know how many people will actually benefit from that.

Maybe the single player game won't be a boring derivative experience?

Maybe it will rain $100 notes tomorrow?

It could happen!

To say this has drifted into the "absolutely must see reviews first" territory is quite an understatement.

And a sad one, for a game with such a pedigree.

I think this is fun in the way that deathmatch was fun with quake 1. but it doesn't seem special, and there are many defects. overwatch and even CS make this doom look primitive. that's as kindly as I can put it

id was not really very good at making games except at their peak, and now it's clearly just a random bunch of guys with limited talent and leadership. sorry

I'm definitely buying Doom for the single player experience. I don't need a poor Quake game for multiplayer, though.

There are no more multiplayer games that I like.

OMG Best Idea EVER! Check this out!! A "like system" so we can "thumbs up" people who got a good frag and like a page where we can start a profile and friend fellow fraggers and me and my friends can like post and totally rant and it'll make gaming news headlines and so like people can tweet all of our funny and outrageous comments! Wow!!! We can call it DoomVille and harvest our own characters! Wouldn't that be like so totally awesome??? Don't you agree!?! And you know, I think like game scoring is bad because it might hurt feelings and that would make people very sad.

So, the game is locked at 60, unless you're running SLI, in which case it runs at 28fps. Also, it refuses to remember what resolution you set it to, but PRETENDS it does, so it'll say 1440p while actually running at 1080p.

Once you convince it to run at 1440p, on one card, it'll run sorta smoothly. Turn off the insane motion blur, then marvel at forced FSAA, making the already muddy brownness even more muddy. There's literally nothing here that couldn't be done on a fucking 360. I realize some of my issues with it will be ironed out by launch, but they can't suddenly replace the art with something that actually looks good. They have a clear hatred for sharp, defined textures, or anything that isn't brown.

Spent time with both Doom and Overwatch this morning. I had fun with both. Probably will get both. For whatever reason both of these clicked with me. Been a long time since I played a multiplayer shooter and actually enjoyed it. I am going to get a lot of hours out of both of these.

Also, the "Unreal" style sound samples when you're on a killing spree etc. are fucking HILARIOUSLY bad. It sounds like Dave from accounting doing the VO with the same enthusiasm he has for processing monthly HR statements.

Whaaaaaaaat?!

I assumed the new id Tech engine would have more flexibility since the negative feedback from Rage. I guess not. So just same shit, different pile.

Doom II multiplayer with mods is still a riot in a LAN environment.

I still consider Doom II to be the best multiplayer game ever. LAN'ing with friends, playing 3-wave CTF, Rocket Arena, Lithium II.. the best time of my life.

Wasn't Lithium a Quake mod? maybe Doom too, never saw it till Q and Q2.

I remember the first time I saw doom on LAN, it was at a game store in the mall, two guys had set it up on computers and there were dozens of people around watching this cool new tech.

I personally didn't start LAN'ing with friends until the Quake era, with Quake II still being my favorite multiplayer game of all time, but if it weren't for Doom 1/2 and the mod scene those games created gaming simply wouldn't be the same today.

I'm having issues with the sounds in game. The super shotgun is ultra quiet and for some reason it seems like there's no footsteps/markers for tracking people. Also the game feels really really slow.
Yeah, you need to pay $ for DLC to upgrade the shotgun for more impact sound effects. Also DLC for footsteps/markers. And DLC for speed boosters.
