[Update] A Winner Has Been Named In Doom Alternate Art Vote
Update: The votes have been tallied and a winner has been named! The vibrant hellscape pictured below will be featured as alternate art.
Bethesda revealed the cover art for the upcoming Doom earlier last month, and to say that people were disappointed would be an understatement. The art, which featured a generic armored Space Marine against a hazy yellow backdrop with the Doom logo, became an online meme. Today, Bethesda is giving fans who weren't hot on the original box art a chance to pick their preference for what will be featured on the other side of the now-reversible cover art.
There are two options to choose from. Option A, which is the spooky skull and equally spooky demonic symbol, can be seen in the image above. Option B is directly below, and it features art clearly inspired by the original game's action-packed packaging.

Hopefully, Bethesda will release high-resolution images of both options at some point, so people can print off their preference if it doesn't make the cut.
