    October 21, 2015: Doom 2016 Alpha Now Available By Invite


    If you pre-ordered Wolfenstein: The New Order, then go to http://doom.com/age_gate/alpha for the Doom 2016 Alpha.  According to the Doom Facebook group, invites to the closed Doom Alpha build were first being sent by email on the morning of October 21.  The Doom Alpha is only available in English.  The Doom Beta is at a to-be-announced day.  Doom 2016 may be released in Spring 2016 for X-Box One, Playstation 4, and 64-bit PC.
     
    For a Doom 2016 preview, watch from 1:01:20 to about 1:21:20.  At 1:21:20, Wolfenstein 2009 is shown as a game on Bethesda.net.

    We should possibly form a Wolf3D Haven and/or Diehard Wolfers Doom 2016 multiplayer clan?

    Doom 2016 Beta Available Soon?

    Post by stathmk on Sun Dec 13, 2015 6:45 pm

    December 10, 2015: Doom 2016 Beta Available Soon?
     
    I don’t remember the name of the boy or man who typed on The Doom Facebook page on about last Thursday that the Doom 2016 Alpha multi-player invites are finishing up, & that the Doom alpha forums will be deactivated.  If this is accurate, then I infer that this means that The Doom 2016 reboot Beta for multiplayer invites will begin soon for those who entered in their code from Wolfenstein: The New Order: http://doom-beta.wolfenstein.com/

    Side note:  Prey is a modern 3D Realms first person shooter video game where a Native American on a reservation fights murderous space aliens & it reminds me of the Doom 3 generation of graphics.  My understanding is that Prey 1 takes place on Earth, that in the ending sequence you go through a wormhole to another planet, & that Prey 2 was cancelled after being shown at a gaming convention.  I watched a video in October about how Prey 2 supposedly has elements of the Doom 2016 reboot.  If I find either the Prey 1 ending sequence video or the video of Prey 2 & Doom 2016 reboot comparisons in the next 2 days then I will post them.

    Edit: Prey 1 ending: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItyuFWw-NM4&t=19m03s 

    Edit 2: I can't find the video anymore of Bethesda's Prey 2 & Doom 2016 reboot comparisons.  It may have been taken down for copyright reasons, I guess?  Prey 2 was officially cancelled & maybe Bethesda thought that they could generate more interest by spending their time & resources on the new Doom?

    Doom 2016 Beta For Wolf T.N.O. Pre-orders & More Info

    Post by stathmk on Mon Mar 21, 2016 7:22 pm

    Doom 2016 Beta For Wolf T.N.O. Pre-orders & More Info
     
    March 14, 2016: Doom 2016 PC Specifications Announced:
    The Doom 2016 PC specifications include something about Windows 7 64-bit or later here with a link to "Doom - Official Multiplayer Trailer."

    March 21, 2016: Doom 2016 has 6 Multiplayer Modes Announced:
    The 6 multiplayer modes are revealed in a trailer here. 
     
    March 22, 2016: Doom 2016 Game Informer scanned articles:
    I have scanned & cropped all of The Doom 2016 pages of the Game Informer issue.  If you like 3D Realms, I have also included 2 pages about Max Payne:
    gameinformer274_doc.doc
    gameinformer274_pdf.pdf
    gameinformer274_croppedscans.zip


    March 22, 2016: Doom Gamestop Trading Cards Scanned:
    -Mancubus front & back
    -Revenant front & back

    March 31 to April 3, 2016: Doom 2016 Beta For Wolf T.N.O. Pre-orders & More Info:
    The Doom 2016 closed beta is from March 31 to April 3 for those who pre-ordered Wolfenstein: The New Order & entered their code here.
     
    Pre-order Doom 2016 before May 13, 2016:
    If you pre-order Doom 2016 for X-Box One before May 13, 2016, then it comes with Doom (The original 3 or 4 episodes) & Doom 2: Hell on Earth.  If you pre-order Doom 2016 for PC, then it comes with a CD or DVD, skin pack, & I believe also a multiplayer pack.  You can pre-order Doom 2016 before you buy a new, updated, computer because steampowered.com codes don’t expire.


    Miscellaneous Notes:
    -There’s a Doom 2016 Collector’s Edition for X-Box One at here & it includes the mechanical light-up monster & the exclusive demon multiplayer pack.
    -Be careful when ordering so that you don’t accidentally order the 1990s Doom Collector’s Edition.  It’s Ultimate Doom (4 Episodes), Doom II: Hell on Earth, & Final Doom (2 32-level episodes of Doom 2).
    -There’s at least 1 new enemy in Doom 2016.
    -The Doom 2016 single player campaign will reportedly take about 13 hours to complete.
    -The Doom Facebook group has alternate DVD box art.
    -This is a little bit off topic, but I’m not posting onto Wolfenstein Goodies any more modern game releases that will be made after the May 2016 Doom Reboot release.  I can’t be distracted for years with more modern games when I should be dedicated to Wolfenstein, Apogee, 3D Realms, their mods, & etc.

    Best PC for Doom reboot & other modern games?

    Post by stathmk on Sun May 08, 2016 10:16 am

    I pre-ordered the Doom reboot for the PC.  I’m moving into a different house where I’ll set up an area for a gaming computer.  I’m looking online, in Game Informer magazine, in GameCenter magazine, & PC Gamer magazine at the different PCs.  What PC make & model do you recommend that I buy for the Doom reboot & other modern computer games?

    In the meantime, I already asked the Doom reboot Facebook group & Diehard Wolfers forum today.  I'd like your opinions too.

    Although a bit dated now you should definitely check Doom 3 out, it was fantastic when it first launched and still enjoyable today I think. Especially with Sikkmod and other addons.

    Somebody on the Doom Facebook group seems to have joked that the Doom 4 demo from last week would take up 3,472 floppy disks each of 1.44 megabytes.
     
    The Doom 4 Demo is still available for Xbox One, Playstation 4, & Steam at http://doom.com/demo .
