Bethesda is responding to positive and negative feedback by releasing its first update for Doom. The digital patch has been confirmed to improve single-player and multiplayer modes.Advertisement
The update for Doom will be available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One users on June 30. As of now, the file size of the update is still unknown, but judging by the patch notes, there seems to be several new features and optimizations for General and Campaign mode. Let’s hope it doesn’t juice a lot of bandwidth.
According to Polygon, the Doom update will contain a new add-on called Photo mode. This feature can be found in games like Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Forza Horizon 2, giving gamers the ability to snap screenshots without the in-game interface.
Classic Doom gamers must be ready to brace themselves for nostalgia, as the update has added a new option called “Classic Doom,” which allows players to change their weapon placement to the center. This FPS weapon interface was originally set in the first Doom.
Aside from new features, Bethesda has also added content for bug and stability fixes for several issues. One notable glitch caused Doom to be available for play only with internet connection for the Xbox One. Other issues like game crashes in PS4 while “reloading checkpoint in Foundry” has been fixed.
While the patch note contains various fixes for PS4 and Xbox One, it has also “Fixed Dev Mode incorrectly triggering when the user retrieves their own save data from Steam Cloud” in the PC. To read the full patch note, you can visit this page.
PC and Xbox One users need not worry as the patch will automatically download and update your game, but PS4 users will have to manually download the file unless they switched to automatic mode.
