DOOM's New Update Unlocks All Multiplayer DLC

Doom Update 6.66 Today Makes All Multiplayer DLC Free, Adds New Progression System

The update unlocks all multiplayer DLC content for all players, including maps, weapons, demons, and equipment, and also overhauls the multiplayer progression system.

The developer also replaced the Hack Module System of perks with a Runes System that offers passive benefits ala the single-player campaign.

What is Doom Update 6.66?

Following the release of today's update, version 6.66, those who haven't yet picked up the game will soon be able to try it for free.

What is the revised progression system? Instead of relying on the random distribution of unlocks, items now unlock through specific leveling requirements or through in-game challenges that the player can complete. Now, if there's a specific helmet you want, you can work toward unlocking it by focusing your play style on the related challenge.

What is the new rune system? Previously, Hack Modules were consumable items you could use to obtain various boosts for a limited time.

On the other hand, the Runes System enhances player abilities, but can be persistently equipped, which was not possible with the previous system. The new death screen will list out the combination of players, weapon types and damage inflicted.

Multiplayer progression is now more structured. This change will affect everyone, including veteran players.

First, we've retired the DOOM season pass and are making all of the multiplayer DLC content available to all players. "Starting at 12:00 pm ET on Thursday, July 20, on Xbox One, 1pm ET on Thursday, July 20 on PC, and 12:00 pm ET on Thursday, July 27 on PlayStation 4, you can try DOOM for free".

The full game can be unlocked. If you choose to purchase it, Bethesda will be offering it digitally for $14.99.

Some free weekends have also been announced.

End: 11pm CT on Sunday 07/23.
