The pre-orders for the modern remake/reboot of Doom have just gone live in the Xbox Store ahead of its May 13th release date and there are some genuinely good bonuses for those who want to pre-order their copy as soon as possible.
In addition to the main game, pre-orders will also come with the Demon Multiplayer Pack which includes the special Demon-themed armor set with three skin variations, six Hack Modules, six exclusive metallic paint colors, and three id logo patterns that can be used to customize weapons and armor.
The real incentive to pre-order Doom though is the digital copies of the original Doom I and Doom II, both of which can also be played on Xbox One. Within seven to ten days of pre-ordering, special download codes for Doom I and Doom II will be sent to the buyer’s Xbox message center and will have to be manually redeemed. These code giveaways are stated to be only for a limited time and no end date has been given. Those interested in getting free copies of Doom I and Doom II should probably pre-order Doom as soon as possible just to be on the safe side.
Here’s the official description for the new Doom on Xbox One:
Developed by id Software, the studio that pioneered the first-person shooter genre and created multiplayer Deathmatch, DOOM returns as a brutally fun and challenging modern-day shooter experience. Relentless demons, impossibly destructive guns, and fast, fluid movement provide the foundation for intense, first-person combat – whether you’re obliterating demon hordes through the depths of Hell in the single-player campaign, or competing against your friends in numerous multiplayer modes. There is no taking cover or stopping to regenerate health as you beat back Hell’s raging demon hordes. Combine your arsenal of futuristic and iconic guns, upgrades, movement and an advanced melee system to knock-down, slash, stomp, crush, and blow apart demons in creative and violent ways Expand your gameplay experience using the DOOM SnapMap game editor to easily create, play, and share your content with the world.
