Unto the Evil Multiplayer DLC Now Available for Doom

Bethesda Softworks has unleashed new downloadable content for their Doom reboot.

The new “Unto the Evil” downloadable content is now available for the game across all platforms: PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Featured above, you can view a new trailer that showcases what to expect in the game’s new multiplayer content.

In total, the new DLC includes the following:


Unto the Evil brings three new diverse maps to DOOM multiplayer: Offering, Cataclysm, and Ritual. In addition, the DLC adds the UAC EMG Pistol as a new weapon, the Kinetic Mine as new equipment, and the Harvester as a new playable demon. Unto the Evil also adds new armor sets, patterns, colors, and taunts, as well as new hack modules. id Software is also introducing the PartyPlay system, which allows anyone to play any of the new maps from Unto the Evil, as long as you party up with a friend who owns the DLC. Similarly, if you own the DLC, the Unto the Evil DLC maps will be accessible to anyone who’s in your party as part of the map rotation.

Doom is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    boy, bethesda really had no idea how to handle DOOM did they?

    not only was the marketing atrocious and people were led to believe this was going to be yet another failed revival of a franchise, but also the DLC they had planned for the game centers around multiplayer, the one aspect of the game nearly nobody liked

    Settle down, lad. It’s not like they suddenly decided to make DLC for multiplayer. It’s more than likely that it was started while the original game was still in development. These things are always planned out months in advance.

    I would give absolutely no shits about this if Snapmap wasn’t limited to 4 players, with Snapmap you can make MP maps that are free of the BS that drags down the standard MP but they had to gimp it to 4 players otherwise everybody would be playing it instead and not buying their DLC.

    Bethesda sure the hell didn’t but at least they didn’t fuck with the SP. MP is filled with so much modern FPS cancer that it almost feels like it was done to appease anyone at Bethesda angry that SP wasn’t a slow linear cinematic experience.

    not surprising considering the multiplayer was outsourced to the dinguses that coded call of duty ghosts’ multiplayer, halo the master chief collection’s multiplayer, Certain Affinity

    i dont think they couldve chosen a bigger tumor to place upon D44M’s development

    fam, thats exactly my point, if bethesda KNEW how to sell the game, they wouldve planned the DLC around the singleplayer NOT the multiplayer

    i dont know if it was lack of faith in their product, or the most misguided marketing team since the people responsible for naming the WiiU, but it was just a complete mess and it most likely costed the game some sales, thankfully word of mouth is giving it some legs

    Well I’m not going to pretend I know what their market analysts think, but multiplayer has been a very popular trend in FPS video games for the last two generations. I don’t know fuck all about nudoom, I’ve never played it nor will I until I pirate it to try it out first, so I don’t know how good single/multiplayer is.

    But it seems very obvious to me, as an outsider looking in, that the publisher would choose to emphasise the very popular multiplayer in their planned support life cycle for the game.
    The guys deciding the direction of the game are usually trend analysts and suits, not passionate developers.

    TLDR I don’t see why there’s so much fuss over what seems to me as an obvious decision for any big publisher investing in a modern FPS

    it would be like trying to sell minecraft on graphics

    sure graphics are a very popular aspect of modern video games, but anyone with even the slightest idea of what the game is about would tell you that selling MC on graphics is retarded, likewise if they had focused on selling the single player instead of the multiplayer of the game before release, theyd have probably had more sales, if they had planned the DLC around the singleplayer, they wouldve probably sold a good deal of DLC too

    also if you want to pirate the game, you might try doing that now, it seems a new “crack” has come out and it apparently works

    however, heres the catch, its not really a crack, its bypassing denuvo, its somehow related to the DOOM demo, this “crack” relies on steam to work, so if valve decides to update steam to fix this exploit, the crack will most likely stop working

    also i wouldnt suggest using your main steam account to use an exploit that allows you to pirate games

    Multi-player is a focus it just so happens it has jackshit to do with the single-player, get rid of hack modules and demon runes and load outs and have you collect and control weapon points instead and you’ll have something that somewhat resembles it. Doom could have been the MP FPS for people sick of modern FPS but nope that would be too gosh darn triggering, I’m honestly shocked that they didn’t force weapon reloading into it while they were at it.

    On one hand, it’s refreshing to feel like I’m losing out on nothing by not waiting for the GOTY edition. On the other hand, I’d really love more single player levels. Hopefully they change their minds and release an expansion pack at some point.

    Outside of the multiplayer being shit, what the hell were they thinking charging for maps? It seems like games can’t really get away with that anymore unless they’re CoD or Battlefield (maybe Battlefront, but chalk that up to the IP attached to it).
