Live-Action DOOM Trailer Urges Gamers to ‘Fight Like Hell’

DOOM trailer

The newly-released, live-action DOOM trailer encompasses everything fans know and love about the franchise, from the dark setting to using bad ass guns against overwhelming, demonic enemies.

What I love most about this trailer is that it embraces the idea that you, as a player are not invincible. Running and gunning in the original DOOM, the bloodied face of Doom Marine was ever-present on the HUD display, but taking a beating and still coming back for more was always part of the fun.

Bethesda will be holding Closed Beta this weekend, from March 31st to April 3rd. The beta is open to all those who pre-ordered DOOM or purchased Wolfenstien: The New Order on PS3 or PS4. The closed beta will allow early access to Team Deathmatch and Warpath Mode on two maps: Heatwave and Infernal. To check eligibility requirements, visit

Want to get in on the multiplayer action? Head into a GameStop beginning at 6pm EST on April 1st (or any time through April 3rd) to get a free DOOM closed beta code while supplies last. No purchase required!


DOOM will be unleashed May 13, 2016 for XBox One, PS4 and PC. In the meantime, you can prepare your body by checking out the Premium Collector’s Edition, featuring a 12” tall Revenant statue. Pre-orders are available now at your favorite video game retailer – keep it here as new information develops!
