DOOM Trailer Spotlights Nine Hellish Multiplayer Arenas
Fans may be still reeling from last week’s DOOM multiplayer trailer, which blew the lid off the online component featured in id Software’s upcoming reboot, but already we have another trailer from the studio. This one places the spotlight on all nine of the shooter’s multiplayer arenas, and they’re about as hellish as you would expect.
From a water-tight mining outpost to a sprawling, ancient arena, there appears to be a fair amount of variety peppered across DOOM‘s online portion.
Bethesda and id Software haven’t ruled out the chance of rolling out additional maps after release, but for now the launch lineup is shaping up as follows:
Excavation: A modest-sized UAC mining outpost. Watch out for the rock grinder!
Infernal: A mid-sized Hell map with both interior and exterior elements. Lots of platforms and chasms, along with teleporters.
Chasm: This massive map takes you deep below the polar ice caps of Mars. A great place to play Freeze Tag.
Disposal: This smaller map is the main waste processing facility for the UAC research and residential complexes. Unsurprisingly, it’s full of radioactive slime.
Helix: This is where they experiment on demons and develop advanced weaponry. Which, naturally, makes it perfect for a quick round of Clan Arena.
Perdition: Disjointed and sadistic, this ancient arena is populated by the agonized moans of unfortunate souls who have suffered within its realm.
Sacrilegious: Set within a fracture of Hell, this map offers clear lines of sight. Move fast… or die faster.
Heatwave: An industrial UAC facility with glistening halls that will soon be slicked with human (and demon) blood.
Beneath: Before being beamed to Earth, the energies of Hell are harnessed in this symmetrical and cavernous location.
DOOM deploys for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 13. A closed beta will take place for those who pre-ordered Wolfenstein: The New Order later this month.
