Today, Bethesda's release clued us in on something that Doom fans have been anticipating for years: an actual release date. Mark your calendars for May 13th, because that’s when Doom will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and of course, the PC platform.
Gamers will be able to pickup a Collector’s Edition of the game which come with a 12-inch tall statue of the game’s signature villain: the Revenant. The statue was modeled using in-game 3D files and stands atop a base that features an internal rotating turbine and LED lighting. You’ll also receive the game disc enclosed within a metal case. The Doom Collector’s Edition is currently available for pre-order for $119.99, and those that pre-order either the standard or Collector’s Edition will also receive the Demon Multiplayer pack:
[The Demon Multiplayer Pack] includes exclusive multiplayer goodies like a demon armor set with three skin variations, six metallic paint colors and three id logo patterns for your weapons and armor, and a set of six Hack Modules – consumable items that will give you an edge in a multiplayer match.
And if that isn’t enough Doom news for you, Bethesda also dropped a new campaign trailer for you to ogle:
For those keeping score, this will be the first full-fledged entry into the franchise since 2004’s Doom 3. The original Doom, which was a landmark game for its time, was released in 1993.
