Doom update 6.66 retires its season pass, all multiplayer DLC now free

DOOM Review Top Screen

The aptly titled "Update 6.66" brings a host of changes to the popular shooter, in addition to a bunch of bug fixes.

DOOM is delivering a treat for new players and veterans alike with its latest update.

For players that have already unlocked equipment via the previous method and DLC packs, Bethesda has said that these players will be given the choice to completely reset their progression and start over from scratch, or keep what they have already unlocked and continue on with the new progression system. Everything now unlocks through meeting level requirements and completing in-game challenges.

Also on the update's agenda is a new Runes system, which will replace the multiplayer modes' Hack Modules with something that's more similar to the single-player campaign's Runes system.

Mexico vs. El Salvador in 2017 Gold Cup
The midfield is a rigid force with players like Jesus Molina, Jesus Duenas, Orbelin Pineda, Rodolfo Pizarro and Erick Gutierrez. After a dominant nine-minute-stretch by El Salvador, Mexico found a way to open up the scoreline on a set piece.

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. Runes in multiplayer are now persistent player abilities that you equip on the loadout screen. Runes won't need to be activated and they don't expire. Specifically, the kill card has been revised to provide more accurate information on their demise, including who killed them, as well as that player's weapon type and damage that combined to kill them.

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".

Doom came out in May of 2016 to nearly universal critical acclaim, and Id Software has continued to update the game regularly since then. For us PC kids, the free weekend starts on July 20-that's tomorrow-at 12:00 PM Eastern Time.

Is Update 6.66 available on all platforms? This free weekend trial will let you play the first two Campaign levels and all of DOOM Multiplayer and SnapMap. If you like what you play during the Free Weekend, we're offering the full game for $14.99 (US) / £11.99 (UK) / $17.99 (AUS) (digital purchase only).
