Bethesda has announced that Hell on Mars shooter/skull stomper Doom will be getting a host of new modes in upcoming update. The imaginary titled “Free Update 3” will be out later this month and will include Deathmatch, Private Matches and Arcade Mode.

This information was shared via the medium of a YouTube video. You can watch said video below, pay attention though, there may be quiz afterwards. Are you ready?

Right, eyes down, pens ready, we shall begin.

Question 1. What did you notice at the end of the video?

Question 2. What am I doing with my life?

Ok, pens down, times up. Now, did you notice the stream announcement at the end of the trailer? Good for you, gold stars all round. If any of you gold star wearers know what I’m doing with my life then please send me the answer on a postcard.

The stream will be taking place on the Xbox Twitch page at 11 AM PT on September the 13th. Id software’s Marty Stratton and Hugo will be there to talk about the game. In preparation Bethesda has provided some details on the new modes.

“Deathmatch brings free-for-all mayhem to DOOM’s fast-paced multiplayer, and arrives as part of Free Update 3 this month. Private Matches are also coming in that update, allowing you and your friends to create private multiplayer matches where you determine the maps and modes.


You’ll also be able to adjust settings like the time limit, score limit or turning demons and power weapons on or off. Plus, you’ll see a sneak peak of Arcade Mode, an upcoming competitive addition to the game’s critically acclaimed campaign mode, set to arrive in a future free update this fall”

Doom has been hitting all the right notes since its release in May this year and it doesn’t look like it’s stopping now, are you a DOOM guy or gal? Looking forward to the update? Let me know in the comments below, postcards are for the other question.
