Launched in May previous year, Doom proved a well-received reboot of Bethesda subsidiary's id Software's identically-named first-person shooter (FPS) from 1993.

Most fans are happy with the changes as they hope the free trial could lure in more players and make the game's multiplayer more competitive.

As the game only received DLC for its multiplayer portion, this update adds every map, gun, playable demon, and equipment, along with all customization options that were previously only available via the DLC, onto the base game free of charge. And if you're so impressed that you end up buying the full game, says Bethesda, your weekend's worth of progress will be carried over.

Furthermore, Bethesda has replaced the oft-criticized Hack Module System with a Runes System that is similar to the one found in the main campaign. This week we're rolling out the "ultimate" DOOM experience as well as offering it to new players at a hellishly low price.

Players will be able to keep their unlocked items from the random unlock system, but they will also be able to reset the game if they want so. The user interface and menus are also being updated in 6.66, with new post-match summaries and lobbies that have better player statuses, among other things.

Yes, Update 6.66 resets all players' multiplayer level back to 0.

The team has also revised the multiplayer progression system. This change will affect everyone, including veteran players. Runes don't need to be activated and don't expire, so your unlocked perks will stay with you and can now become a consistent part of your play strategy.

Aside from unlocking all multiplayer DLCs, Bethesda also revealed that players could try out "DOOM" for free on specific dates. That includes maps, weapons, demons, and equipment.

Each of Doom's three downloadable content (DLC) packs has focused on expanding its multiplayer side.

Doom is out now on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Blast hordes of demons in the first two levels of DOOM's critically acclaimed campaign, then ratchet up the intensity by going for a high-score in Arcade Mode.
