  1. Doom's multiplayer beta is set to begin on March 31 for those that pre-ordered or purchased a copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order way back in 2014. As we learned earlier this month, Bethesda plans to offer up two game modes – Team Deathmatch and Warpath – as well as two maps – Heatwave and Infernal – during the beta.

    Now, Bethesda has published a teaser video detailing all six multiplayer modes and what to expect from each.

    In addition to traditional Team Deathmatch, Domination and Clan Arena, gamers will be able to partake in Soul Harvest, Freeze Tag and Warpath multiplayer modes.

    Soul Harvest tasks gamers with, well, harvesting the souls of those you kill. Presumably, the person who collects the most souls wins. In Freeze Tag, players set out to freeze their enemies while simultaneously thawing out allies. Whichever team successfully freezes all of its adversaries first wins. And in Warpath, players must capture and maintain a moving zone for as long as possible.

    Doom arrives on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 13 priced at $59.99 (there's also a collector's edition that'll command $119.99).

    You talking about the collector's edition, which means people do have the money to buy such things. Regular edition is $60, which is quite Ok for this kind of game.

    Yes! On Steams sales. If I'm honest, all you want from a video game is to be able to play and enjoy it.

    I didn't say people don't have the money to throw around on the game but surely there are better things in this world to throw the money at? It's not as though you can resell the game or treasure it forever. Mind you, there is no accounting for as to the way some people think.

    Yes absolutely, iPhones could be a great way to waste money! Then blast them out of a cannon at a concrete wall, that'll show who you can waste more money betterer!

    At least this gets you a 12" tall figuring that rotates, more impressive than most collectors editions, still not going to bite.

    Like what? fast food? ice cream? movie rentals? Alcohol? overpriced clothes? What is your definition of better and what makes you think the stuff you waste money on is any better than someone spending money on a game they're a fan of?

    Save the money for a rainy day. Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves. Waste not, want not... Do you see where this is going?

    Believe it or not, its quite possible to spend and save at the same time.
    No point in spending your entire life saving and not spending on things you want now and then, only to realize youre going to die before ever having enjoyed yourself.

    You're right. You may as well enjoy it while you can and if blowing $120 on a video game is your thing, so be it. Mind you, 120 bucks is not too bad when you consider how much Activision extorts from suck... er, people for their collectors edition COD stuff with real gimmicky gadgets that probably costs about $20 to make.
