Update, 5/13/2016, 10:41am PT: In case you forgot, Doom is now available for purchase on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
In a little over a week, Doom will be available for everyone, and id Software prepared a new trailer as well as additional preloading information to hype up the game’s release.
As expected, the trailer is full of the usual scenes of blood, gore, monsters and guns as you try to survive the onslaught. You’ll have a vast arsenal of weapons at your disposal, so use it to its full potential and take out anything that stands in your way.
Depending on your platform of choice for the game, the preloading ritual can start now or next week. If you purchased the game on the Xbox One, you can start the process now, but you will need 50 GB of storage space for the game. For those on the PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam), you’ll have to wait until 12am ET on May 11 to start preloading the game.
In addition, the developers slightly changed the PC requirements, specifically the amount of storage needed for the game. The last time we saw the game’s PC requirements was during the open beta, when it required 22 GB. The final game will need 55 GB of space. If you get the physical version of the game, you’ll also need to download an additional 45 GB from Steam in order to run it. Official drivers from AMD and Nvidia come out next week.
