Update: The votes have been tallied and a winner has been named! The vibrant hellscape pictured below will be featured as alternate art.

Original Story:

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.

Our Take
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.
