Doom Multiplayer Alpha Coming Soon, QuakeCon Attendees Get First Crack At It

by Andrew Reiner on Jul 23, 2015 at 10:30 AM

During the welcome speech at this year's QuakeCon event at Dallas' Hilton Anatole Hotel, Marty Stratton, executive producer at id Software, said that Doom's beta will be coming closer to the game's launch next spring for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, but the alpha would be coming "relatively soon." To be eligible for the alpha or beta, you need to have purchased Wolfenstein: The New Order, and registered the beta key from the game's case. A small group of people who registered for the beta will be selected for the forthcoming alpha.

Several lucky people in attendance at QuakeCon are playing the multiplayer now. During the welcome speech, everyone in the auditorium was asked to look under their seats for tickets. People finding golden tickets were rushed off to be the first to play the game. We hope to get our hands on the game at the event, and will bring you details as soon as we have them.
