Machinegames' take on the Wolfenstein franchise is coming to consoles and PC on May 20, Bethesda Softworks announced today, and beta access to the long-in-development new Doom from id Software is being offered as incentive for pre-ordering the game.

According to a release from Bethesda, everyone who pre-orders the game will be invited to access the Doom beta with their copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order. More details on the Doom beta pre-order incentive are promised at the official Wolfenstein website.

When contacted for information about the new Doom, Bethesda declined to provide additional comment or platform details, but confirmed that it's the next Doom title currently being worked on by id Software. A release date for Doom and its beta was not provided.

Doom 4 is alive: pre-order the new Wolfenstein game and you'll get in the beta, publisher Bethesda has announced.

There's little else on id Software's long in-development shooter. We had thought it was called Doom 4, but today Bethesda referenced it only as Doom, so perhaps it's a reboot of sorts.

MachineGames' Wolfenstein: The New Order is due out on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 on 23rd May 2014, so the beta won't be available until some point after then.

The news comes at the end of a new trailer for Wolfenstein, below. A Doom beta invitation will be included with a purchase of Wolfenstein.

A little confused. It says preorder to get in the doom beta. Does that mean I actually have to buy the game or just get a preorder code?

beta access for a singleplayer game? Or does Doom4 come with a Multiplayer? If it´s a Multiplayer Beta from Doom4, it´s a smart move. Some Doom fans will buy it and a game that previously had no Multiplayer has now one, even if it´s a totally different game xD

But Doom without Carmack ;(

Interesting.

I'm usually against preorders, but II was already planning on getting Wolf, so I guess I may as well. I <3 Doom.

So how much CoD do you think they'll force into this game?

Because they forced so much CoD into Rage, right?

Is this the first time that a beta has been announced for a game before we've ever even seen what that game looks like?

I like that trailer. Damn, that's a tempting preorder deal too.

That is definitely the question....

Announcing a beta before even showing the game? Okay then. I guess I am excited all the same, but I am not pre-ordering Wolfenstein.

Zenimax is making Doom 4 an MMO with a $20 daily weekly sub, and you can also purchase demon hearts for some sweet stat boosts...


I plan to buy wolfenstien, but it is a little strange to hype a Beta for a game no one knows anything about. I mean it is Doom, but still.

They apparently started on a new version of Doom 4 around summer 2013:
"An earlier version of Doom 4 didn't exhibit the quality and excitement that id and Bethesda intend to deliver and that Doom fans worldwide expect,&#8221; Hines explains. &#8220;As a result, id refocused its efforts on a new version of Doom 4 that promises to meet the very high expectations everyone has for this game and this franchise. When we&#8217;re ready to talk about the Doom 4 id is making, we will let folks know.&#8221;
