All multiplayer DLC will be free with Doom's 6.66 update

All multiplayer DLC will be free with Doom's 6.66 update”

Id Software's Doom reboot has been out for over a year now and the developer decided to make all of its paid DLC free for everyone as part of today's update 6.66.

In a blog post on their site, the publisher announced that the season pass for DOOM would be scrapped in the latest. The update unlocks all multiplayer DLC content for all players, including maps, weapons, demons, and equipment, and also overhauls the multiplayer progression system. The Season Pass used to set consumers back £29.99, or £11.49 to buy each pack individually. The progression for the multiplayer mode is seeing a revision as well, as the unlockable items will now be acquired through challenges that fit the player's playstyle. The new system will also see all veteran players reset to level 0, but that's apparently not a big deal, because "that's just your level". This week we're rolling out the "ultimate" DOOM experience and offering it to new players at a hellishly low price. Instead of relying on the random distribution of unlocks, items now unlock through specific levelling requirements or through in-game challenges that the player can complete. And you know what?

The update also revises the mutiplayer progression system. The full 6.66 update patch notes, and an FAQ about the changes, are here.

The all-new Runes replace the Hack Module system.

Old players will get a badge to indicate that they are veterans and can elect to keep some of their unlocked items if they wish. Runes are persistent capabilities (or perks) that become a consistent and predictable component of your loadout and play style. That includes maps, weapons, demons, and equipment. Additionally, free trial periods will also be offered - Windows PC and Xbox One players have access to beginning 21 July here in Australia, while those on PS4 have to wait until 28 July. This will include the first two campaign levels, all multiplayer content and SnapMap (a simple yet powerful level-editor). During this free weekend, the entire game will be available for $14.99 USA, including the campaign, arcade mode, and all that DLC and multiplayer content.
