Xbox Live Gold members can play Doom for free this weekend

TODO alt text

This might change thanks to a large update that DOOM is getting today, dubbed the 6.66 patch. That's on top of the modes and features, like bot support, that players have been enjoying since late past year. You can build your ideal Doom Marine instead of hoping you get the right chestplate next time you level. Players will still retain all of their existing guns, equipment, demons and customization unlocks that they've acquired or purchased. Now, if there's a specific helmet you want, you can work toward unlocking it by focusing your play style on the related challenge.

Also in the 6.66 patch is a revised progression system, simplifying the process by linking unlocks to level requirements rather than being random. Runes won't need to be activated and they don't expire.

Dennis Hastert out of Minnesota prison, BOP records show
The Sun-Times reports Hastert is "likely at a halfway house in the region monitored by that office, or he is on home confinement". Individual A sued Hastert, seeking payment for the remaining $1.8 million he says Hastert still owes him.

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.

On the other hand, the Runes System enhances player abilities, but can be persistently equipped, which was not possible with the previous system. "The kill card has been completely revised to provide players a more clear and accurate account of their demise, including not just who killed them but also the players, weapon types, and damage that combined to kill them". The new system will also see all veteran players reset to level 0, but that's apparently not a big deal, because "that's just your level". For those who have been on the fence about picking up Doom, this will allow them to see why the title received so many accolades in 2016. Starting on July 20 on Xbox One and PC, and July 27 on PlayStation 4, players can try DOOM for free.

During the Free Weekend, which ends on July 30 at 9pm PT, digital copies of Doom will be discounted to $14.99 USD/£11.99. The game will be free to play on all platforms, and will include not only single-player, but full access to multiplayer and SnapMap tools as well. As all progress from the free event is transferred to the full game for anyone that decides to purchase it, this may be an excellent opportunity to see if the game does live up to all the praise it received a year ago. Should you purchase Doom during the Free Weekend, all of your progress will carry over.
