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

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.
