About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.


'Doom' (ALL) Gets Free Demo, SnapMap & Multiplayer Updates, Unto the Evil DLC - Screens & Trailer

DOOM returns as a brutally fun and challenging modern-day shooter experience.

Multiplayer - Unto the Evil

Doom's first premium DLC pack will also release next month. Unto the Evil will include:

  • Three new multiplayer maps: Offering, Cataclysm and Ritual
  • A new player-controlled demon: Harvester
  • A new weapon: UAC EMG Pistol
  • New equipment: Kinetic Mine
  • New ways to customize your Doom marine, including additional armor sets, patterns, colors and taunts
  • New hack modules

Free Demo

id Software built its legacy on sharing, offering free demos of the original Doom over two decades ago. In that same spirit, today's Doom will also offer a free demo of the full first level of game. This demo will available for a limited time only: during the week of E3.

SnapMap - Free Updates

Inspired by the community creations, id Software plans to provide free updates to Doom's innovative SnapMap creation tool, expanding everything from the visuals to the functionality and beyond. Here are some highlights that will be released in the coming months:

  • New construction modules, including Hell visual themes
  • New props, weapons and items
  • New logic options
  • New functionality, like the campaign's popular weapon wheel, which will help creators build deeper single-player experiences
  • Enhanced ways to easily find and play new content in the SnapMap hub

Multiplayer - Free Updates

In the next month, id Software will release two new modes:

  • Exodus: a one-flag CTF mode that Stratton describes as a "uniquely Doom experience"
  • Sector: a multizone capture-and-hold mode

Later this summer, Doom will also be updated with three additional free-for-all modes, including beloved classic mode. All of these new modes will be playable on any existing or future maps, and will be free for all players.

"With just a month past since our launch, we hope you've only scratched the surface of fun we packed into the game," Stratton said. "And we can't wait to give you even more ways to compete, create, play and fight like hell."
