DOOM releases on May 13, 2016 but if you are lucky enough to own a code then you can take part in the multiplayer beta that is set to begin later this month. Bethesda have now released the DOOM beta system requirements for PC as well as plenty of other useful information.

First of all you can only take part in the beta if you received a DOOM beta code when purchasing or pre-ordering Wolfenstein: The New Order before May 26, 2014.

The beta will be available worldwide from March 31 and will run for four days until April 3 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

It will feature two maps, Heatwave and Infernal, with the two game modes Warpath and Team Deathmatch being available for now. These will be included along with never-before-seen weapons, armor sets, taunts and hack modules.

For more details on the beta, along with any specific questions you have, take a look at the FAQ.
