New DOOM Game Not Dead: Beta Comes With Wolfenstein Pre-Order 108

cold fjord writes "Gamespot reports, 'Remember Doom 4? It's not dead! And it's now just called Doom, presumably. And there's going to be a beta. Anyone who preorders a copy of upcoming Wolfenstein: The New Order will gain access to the Doom beta. But Bethesda isn't saying when that beta might be. Or what platforms it will be on. It is saying, however, that you'll need to be over 18 to participate. Sounds like it might be a bit gory, then. More information can be found on Bethesda's Doom beta site.' Forbes adds that Wolfenstein: The New Order is set for release on May 20th."

    Carmack's gone, Romero's long gone, Id is now owned by Zenimax.

    Basically, nobody gives a shit about this game.

    I found the lighting to be perfect and the duct tape mod to make the game far worse.

    It was repetitive, just like every single FPS.

    The story was Doom. This is not a con.

    HL2 didn't revolutionize shit. HL did. HL2 was hyped to no end, but it was a generic, boring shooter. The "story telling" revolved around watching other characters do things while you stood around. It wasn't new or special, nor was the story worth a damn.
