Doom 6.66 Patch Unlocks All Multiplayer DLC; Price Dropped

Doom Update 6.66 Today Makes All Multiplayer DLC Free, Adds New Progression System

Also on the update's agenda is a new Runes system, which will replace the multiplayer modes' Hack Modules with something that's more similar to the single-player campaign's Runes system.

DOOM is delivering a treat for new players and veterans alike with its latest update.

Additional improvements arriving with the 6.66 update include overhauls to the in-game HUD and player kill cards, as well as various other changes to the game's menus and UI. This basically means that all of the DLC maps, weapons, armor sets and demons will be available for all players to enjoy.

The changed progression system in Doom allows for players to get items based on their accomplishments. But the big news is that all the multiplayer DLC is now unlocked, as the season pass has officially been eliminated.

For players that have already unlocked equipment via the previous method and DLC packs, Bethesda has said that these players will be given the choice to completely reset their progression and start over from scratch, or keep what they have already unlocked and continue on with the new progression system. Instead of unlocks being a randomized dice roll, you'll now be able to unlock items through specific leveling requirements and in-game challenges. Runes will act as perks, activating persistent abilities that can be customized in your loadout.

It's also worth noting that Update 6.66 will reset all players' multiplayer level back to 0, and that a free trial weekend will be launched later today.


Yes, the multiplayer DLC is now bundled into the core Doom game for free, producing the definitive Doom experience.

The old players will not have to panic if they see that their levels have been reset to zero because that was on objective.

DOOM was one of the biggest FPS (first person shooter) titles of 2016, thanks to its high octane combat and focus on retro style gameplay. Bethesda's also running a free weekend on PC starting July 20, if you want to test out the multiplayer before buying.

The free-to-play weekend will also reduce the game's price to $14.99 (US) / £11.99 (UK) / $17.99 (AUS) (digital purchase only).

Lastly, if you have yet to give DOOM a shot, it will be free to download and play this weekend for Xbox Live Gold members.
