DOOM 6.66 Patch: Everything You Need to Know

DOOM Gets Overhauled in “Ultimate” Update 6.66 Free to Play This Weekend

Interestingly, the developer also made a decision to completely rehaul the game's multiplayer progression system and mechanics.

If you've played multiplayer since Doom's release, you'll receive a special badge indicating your veteran status. Now, instead of unlocking new content through random loot drops, you'll have to fulfill certain level requirements and in-game challenges, just as you powered up your guns in single-player by fulfilling such tasks. Now, if there's a specific helmet you want, you can work toward unlocking it by focusing your play style on the related challenge.

Elsewhere, the Hack Module System is being replaced by a Runes System similar to the one from the single-player campaign. Runes will act as perks, activating persistent abilities that can be customized in your loadout.

Enhanced Kill Notifications - The death screen is getting an overhaul as well, now calling out how you were killed, not just who killed you.

On top of that, all players' multiplayer levels have been reset back to 0, but "veteran players will have the option to reset their unlock progression and experience the new progression system fresh, or retain all of their existing guns, equipment, demons and customization options that they've acquired or purchased while unlocking some of the new items in the revised progression system".

The next Doom update is straight from the bowels of Hell, if Hell is in fact a place where you get loads of nice stuff for free.

To finish it all off, Bethesda will also be hosting a Doom free weekend beginning July 20 on the Xbox One and PC, with a PlayStation 4 free weekend following on July 27.

The old players will not have to panic if they see that their levels have been reset to zero because that was on goal.

We'll update as region-specific details become available.

Developer id has released a new update for 2016's Doom. If you are interested in DOOM, but not sold on this fast paced game yet, there will be a free weekend held across all platforms. The first two campaign levels will be available and players will have unlimited multiplayer access for the duration of the weekend. Should you purchase Doom during the Free Weekend, all of your progress will carry over.
