The Doom beta will only be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, despite codes being included with PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 copies of Wolfenstein: The New Order, Bethesda has confirmed.
Currently the only way to get into the beta is to pre-order Wolfenstein: The New Order on either Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, or PC. Players who pre-order on Xbox 360 or Xbox One will be granted access to the beta on Xbox One and PS3 or PS4 pre-orders will be given a PS4 code.
“Doom beta access correlates to your pre-ordered Wolfenstein: The New Order platform,” Bethesda explained on the game’s official website. “If you purchase an Xbox 360 or Xbox One version of Wolfenstein: The New Order, you will receive an invitation to the Xbox One Doom beta. PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 purchasers will receive an invite to the PS4 Doom beta. All PC purchases will receive an invite to the PC Doom beta.
“The DOOM Beta will only be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.”
It should be noted that Xbox One owners will need an Xbox Live Gold membership to access the Doom beta, but PS4 owners do not require PlayStation Plus.
In regards to an open beta: “Timing and availability of future beta programs for Doom is to be determined,” Bethesda said. “The only current way to ensure an invitation is through pre-ordering Wolfenstein: The New Order. We will be providing more information on additional beta tests, if any, at a later time.”
Wolfenstein: The New Order is set launch May 20.
