‘Doom’ launching May 13

Publisher Bethesda Softworks has revealed that the next installment in the pioneering first-person shooter franchise “Doom” will launch May 13 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

Developed by id Software, “Doom” will again pit players against the forces of Hell in a “brutally fun and challenging modern-day shooter experience.” Multiplayer is, unsurprisingly, a major focus with several different game modes and a new SnapMap game editor that allows player to create and share content.

The studio also announced plans for a collector’s edition of the game, which includes a 12-inch statue of a Revenant demon and a copy of the game packaged in a “battle-worthy metal case.” The collector’s edition will retail for $119.99.
