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.

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. I keep wanting to hit shift to run and realize it's the push to talk key by default. When you get shot and the only queue is red flashing which blends in with the rest of the UI/level colors the sounds issues become way worse too.
Munching On: FF14 storyline, SAO PS4, Horizon.

I've played a quick round before work this morning. It's not terrible but nothing spectacular either.
Had my ass handed to me
I'll see how I feel about it after the weekend.

Tried a few rounds and gotta say I liked it. Only tried Deathmatch so far. The SSG feels pretty good, likewise the RL and some other weapons. The Railgun whatever rifle is kind of shit, its powerup timer is an atrocious choice in a game like this. Game looks and runs great. In fact the only problem I do have the game is the matchmaking/lobby bullshit. Without player run dedicated servers this game's multiplayer is going to tank in 3-6 months. Which is a shame, because it feels like a lot of fun.

See i was open to this despite the season's pass and the unlocking thing but, matchmaking/lobby approach lol. Thats a 20 year leap backwards and a straight up insult to PC gamers.

I'd should release a communique that says PC games don't sell and blame piracy to avoid saying that it sold poorly cause they didn't try to give clients what they wanted. That's what others do... in the mean time they can continue to slowly steer young PC gamers towards what they want us to play and how it should be played.

It only is if you want it to be.

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