Doom fans who missed their chance to partake in the gory, glory-killing action during the closed beta will now be able to do so starting April 15th.

Bethesda announced yesterday that the open beta of Doom will begin on Friday, April 15th at 12 AM EST for PS4, Xbox One, and PC/Steam users. During the open beta, players will have the opportunity to participate in the same two modes (Team Deathmatch and Warpath) and maps (Heatwave and Infernal) that the closed beta had. The beta will close promptly on Sunday, April 17th at 11:59 PM EST. The full game is set to launch on Friday, May 13th.
