Doom 4 lives!

A new trailer for Wolfenstein: The New Order has confirmed that a new Doom title IS in development.

Those who pre-order Wolfenstein – which incidentally now has a May 23rd release date on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 – will get access to what is being called ‘Doom Beta’.

An insert will be included inside your boxed copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order,” the official FAQ reads. This insert will include a key code along with code redemption instructions.

Once the key code is redeemed, you’ll be registered to participate in the DOOM beta once it begins. Although you’ll receive the DOOM beta key code with your copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order, the DOOM beta won’t begin until a later, yet-to-be announced date.

Timing and availability of future beta programs for DOOM is to be determined.”

The Doom 4 development saga has been rumbling on years. As long ago as 2011 the game’s development was described as being indefinitely postponed”.

In August last year Id software director Tim Willits accused the scrapped development as lacking spirit”, saying: Every game has a soul. Every game has a spirit. When you played Rage, you got the spirit. And [Doom] did not have the spirit, it did not have the soul, it didn’t have a personality.
