DOOM – Free Update 4 Adds Arcade Mode and Classic Modules

Another Free Update (Update 4), This update includes the much-anticipated Arcade Mode, which transforms DOOM’s critically-acclaimed campaign into a competitive fast-paced, score-based challenge. Players who like to start a fresh campaign with all armor and weapon upgrades fully unlocked you’ll love this mode. Free Update 4 also brings Classic DOOM modules to SnapMap. You’ll now be able to play and build new maps using assets based on the original games.

DOOm - Arcade Mode

This update also adds two new multiplayer modes to DOOM. Possession mixes things up, adding a Prowlers vs. Marine mode that puts a team of marines up against several player-controlled Prowler demons. Players who control Marines and get killed will respawn as Prowlers that means more pressure for the other players using Marines. The second new mode is Bloodrush, which adds a twist to free-for-all modes by forcing players to manage their Bloodrush meter in order to respawn. Kills and assists add to your meter. The meter drains gradually over time, and drains a lot if you die. The longer the match goes on, the faster your meter will drain until only one player remains.

Here’s a list of Patch Notes Below:

– Added Arcade Mode for all players

– Added the new FFA mode called Bloodrush
– Added the new team-based, Prowler vs. Marine mode, Possession
– Region selection in MP, allowing folks to matchmaker based on their preference
– Entitlements are now shared at the lobby level instead of by invite, so players won’t need to send an invite every match to get their non-dlc friends in
– General matchmaking improvements to Multiplayer
