Doom is one year old (the new one at least) this week, and Bethesda is celebrating by giving away all its current DLC for free. Update 6.66 – because Doom – brings new updates for the multiplayer system and bug fixes, but the DLC is clearly the more important news.
That said, Doom has possibly the weakest set of DLC for a hit game. Fans criticised the release of three DLC completely focused on multiplayer. Most of which happen to be new maps that don’t really offer as much variety for the game.
What people really want is new single player content, as half the fun of Doom comes from creatively massacring hordes of hellspawn. Not to mention that Doom is traditionally known for its single player experience.
The update also changes the multiplayer progression system. Creating a new leveling path for players to unlock their desired demons, weapons, and player customisation options. The original unlocks happened at random, leaving players in the hands of lady luck. This new revision allows players to earn specific unlocks by completing tasks.
One drawback of this new method is that Bethesda has reset all progress to zero for existing players. Unlocked items will still be available, but people will have to start from scratch to build up their player levels.
