DOOM Free Update 5 Now; New DLC Next Week

A post on Bethesda.net has news that free update 5 is now available for DOOM, adding multiplayer bots and other new features to id Software's shooter. Also, according to a post on NeoGAF, this also removes the game's Denuvo DRM. Here are the details on the patch, including word to expect the game's final DLC next week:
First, we’ve added Bots to DOOM multiplayer. Players have requested this since our multiplayer beta pre-launch, and now Bots are available in both Team Deathmatch and Deathmatch modes.

Next up: level cap. Multiplayer rank now extends to Echelon 11! As an added bonus, once you reach the new highest ranking, you’ll unlock the DOOM Marine Armor. Be the envy of your peers by equipping the signature Praetor Suit, a reflection of the blood, sweat and… even more blood that you’ve shed in battle. The DOOM Marine Armor has also been added to SnapMap, along with more elements from the campaign, allowing you to play and create even more campaign-like experiences in DOOM. We’ve also added Lazarus Lab–themed modules, new props and other features.

Free Update 5 also includes a new competitive multiplayer mode, Infernal Run. Teams fight for control of the (eye) ball, which must be carried or thrown into the opponent’s goal to score.

To celebrate all the new multiplayer additions, we’re giving you double the XP in multiplayer from now until December 12 at 12pm ET. So jump on in, play Infernal Run, and work your way toward Echelon 11. We’re thrilled to bring you the latest game update, and we can’t wait to see you create even more epic DOOM moments. Oh, and one more thing…

Bloodfall, the final DLC for DOOM, arrives on December 15! Turn invisible as the Spectre Pinky demon across three new maps in our third DLC. Look for more details coming next week.

Sucks that they didn't really deliver the multiplayer features everyone wanted. I still feel I got my money's worth from the SP campaign. Being able to play deathmatch with bots will be nice too.

just add a coop through the campaign mode and Ill be happy forever.

then a killing floor style mode

I just played alot of dying light coop recently and I feel that the doom universe would suit a story open world coop game. Especially a sequel like Doom on Earth. Damn I just want more good coop games.

Snapmap sounded great at first, but I didn't last long with it. Finding something good wasn't easy, so you'd try a few things. In 30 minutes of playing I'd have maybe 5 minutes of fun.

It ended up being far more satisfying to go back through SP again. 30 minutes of playing would be 30 minutes of fun.

Did they ever change their stance on releasing a true editor? I popped back in a few days ago to see what the most popular Snap Map creations are, and of course a remake of Doom 1 is at the top. Classic textures and sounds are available so pretty easy job, right? Well it's complete crap. If I wasn't already aware of Snap Map's limitations I'd guess the author had made his maps based on having played them once 20 years ago and checked a couple screenshots since then. Original maps are even worse. Every map still feels like a slightly different interpretation of the same lego set. The crazy scripting stuff people do to spice things up is a massive waste of time. Still loved the game, but man did they miss an opportunity by not embracing the modders who kept the series alive for decades.

Free Update 5, where we add Bots since every one else that bothers with MP is cheating their ass off. Still no dedicated servers, still no anti cheat system, but we have DOOOOOOOOOM Marine Armor now!

They can suck it with this shit. Where are the dedicated servers, or even a server list for fucks sake?

Is this offline bot mp?

No, its a setting you gotta tick when creating an online lobby (aka, becoming the host) and considering how dead (and ridden with cheaters, due to no anti-cheat) this game is already, you might as well not bother
Well poo.

You can make private matches though.. with bots ^^ So it's still online, but you won't be bothered by others.

Forgot that private lobby is an option nowadays... when I played it wasn't. So yeah, you can play yourself, alone, against bots, without other players being able to join. And from what I see, bots are actually competent.. and they'll use pickups and the special and all that.

So it ain't as bad as I made it sound at first
