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.
