Updated Wolfenstein Pre-Order FAQ w/ DOOM Beta

Since announcing DOOM Beta pre-order incentive for Wolfenstein: The New Order, we’ve received plenty of questions on how the beta and redemption process will work. This week we have updated the Beta FAQ with new information.

We hope this answers many of your questions. And no, we’re not ready to talk about specifics on DOOM itself.

DOOM BETA FAQ – This information is subject to change without notice. Please check back for updates.

I’VE JUST PRE-ORDERED WOLFENSTEIN, WHERE’S MY DOOM BETA KEY?
A key code will be located on an insert that’s included inside your boxed copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order when it releases on May 20th. Once the key code is redeemed, you’ll be registered to participate in the DOOM beta once it begins. Check back at wolfenstein.com/doom for updated information.

DO I NEED TO SPECIFY WHAT PLATFORM I WANT TO PLAY THE DOOM BETA?
No. DOOM beta access correlates to your pre-ordered Wolfenstein: The New Order platform. If you purchase an Xbox 360 or Xbox One version of Wolfenstein: The New Order, you will receive an invitation to the Xbox One DOOM beta. PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 purchasers will receive an invite to the PS4 DOOM beta. All PC purchases will receive an invite to the PC DOOM beta. The DOOM beta will only be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

IF I PRE-ORDER THE GAME DIGITALLY, WILL I STILL GET ACCESS TO THE DOOM BETA?
We are working with Steam, Microsoft, and Sony to help ensure that persons pre-ordering digitally from Steam, Microsoft, and Sony will receive access to the DOOM beta. Other digital retailers’ processes and/or participation may vary. We suggest contacting your preferred retailer directly for additional information.

HOW DO I REDEEM MY CODE?
Once you’ve received your boxed copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order or your key code from your participating digital retailer, return to wolfenstein.com/doom and follow the instructions located on the site. Once you enter your code you will be asked to provide a valid email address. Please ensure you use a valid email address that you will continue to use in the future; you will not be able to change the email address associated with your key code. We’ll contact you at a later date with further instructions regarding the DOOM beta via the email address you provide when you register your code.

WILL I NEED 1st PARTY PREMIUM SUBSCRIPTIONS IN ORDER TO PLAY THE DOOM BETA?
An Xbox Live Gold membership is required for the Xbox One beta. A PSN Plus membership is NOT required for the PlayStation 4 beta.

WHAT IS THE DOOM BETA? HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
We will be providing more information on the specific content and duration of the beta test at a later time.

WHEN DOES THE DOOM BETA START?
Although you’ll receive the DOOM beta key code with your copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order, the DOOM beta won’t begin until a later, yet-to-be announced date. We will contact you with news and updates surrounding the start of the DOOM beta via the email address provided during the key code redemption process.

WILL THERE BE AN OPEN BETA FOR DOOM?
Timing and availability of future beta programs for DOOM is to be determined. The only current way to ensure an invitation is through pre-ordering Wolfenstein: The New Order. We will be providing more information on additional beta tests, if any, at a later time.

DOOM Beta invite included with game purchase. Platform/console restrictions will apply. Must be 18+ to participate. Access subject to requisite platform/console subscription, timing and territories, to be determined at Bethesda’s sole discretion. Participation requires Internet connection and acceptance of Beta agreement. Additional terms and conditions may apply.

  1. “The DOOM beta will only be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.”

    Yes! I still play on my last gen consoles, (And I have great memories of them) but the RAM of Last Gen (Yes, even the shared memory of the Xbox 360) has held games like Oblivion back day one. Would of been nice for the consoles to have 1 GB so the promised Radiant AI could of worked.

  2. Well I’m out of luck; I currently play games on Xbox 360 and plan to go with PS4 by the years end, so there goes the pre-order incentive :(

  3. Bethesda should have informed us of this before PS3 users starting pre-ordering this title for the Doom Beta? It seems pretty sneaky if you ask me. I plan on getting a PS4 at some point, but shelling out $400.00 plus isn’t an option at the moment. I’m a loyal Bethesda fan and have earned platinum trophies in both Rage and Doom 3 and hearing this news is greatly disapointing.
