Only Xbox One, PS4, & PC to get access to Doom beta

Written by David Stellmack

360/PS3 Wolfenstein version not to be part of the beta

Bethesda has clarified the situation with the access to the Doom beta for those buying Wolfenstein: The New Order. The Beta for Doom is only going to apparently be available to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC users.

If you pre-order the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 version of Wolfenstein: The New Order, buyers will still get access to the Doom beta, but only on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Apparently, there will be no beta for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 version of the game and this is believed to be because the game will be for the next-generation consoles and PC only with no Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 version. Of course this remains unconfirmed, but believed to be accurate.

In addition it has also been confirmed that Xbox One owners wishing to access the Doom beta using that system will also need to have an Xbox Live Gold subscription. A PlayStation Plus membership will apparently not be required for access to the PlayStation 4 Doom beta.

While Doom still remain unofficially fully announced, we still don’t really know what it is. Some have suggested that it is reboot of the Doom franchise, while others claim that it is just a sequel to Doom 3. Still others are saying that they believe that it will be something altogether new that will provide a new experience within the Doom franchise.

As you might expect, despite the fact that we know that Doom is in development and has been in development for some time, there is no word on when we might see an actual release of the game. Whispers we have heard suggest that it could be as soon as late 2014 or early 2015, but we don’t expect to know the actual play till Bethesda officially announces it at E3 in June.
