Doom beta is Xbox One, PS4 and PC-only

Xbox Live Gold membership required, but PS Plus subscription not necessary

The previously announced Doom beta will only be available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Access to the beta is available by pre-ordering Wolfenstein: The New Order. Those who do so for Xbox platforms will receive Xbox One beta access, those who do so for PlayStation consoles will receive PS4 access, while PC pre-orders will grant PC beta access.


An Xbox Live Gold membership is required for the Xbox One beta, but a PS Plus subscription is not necessary for the PS4 one.

In a new FAQ, Bethesda said it's working with Steam, Microsoft and Sony to ensure digital pre-order customers will also receive beta access.

"Although you'll receive the Doom beta key code with your copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order, the Doom beta won't begin until a later, yet-to-be announced date," it added. "We will be providing more information on the specific content and duration of the beta test at a later time."

Last month, Bethesda brought forward the European and Australian Wolfenstein: The New Order release date to Tuesday May 20, 2014 to coincide with the game's North American launch.
