After performing just over three hours of maintenence on the DOOM multiplayer servers in anticipation for the game’s second major update, Bethesda and id Software have released the second update for DOOM simultaneously on all of its available platforms. The new update brings in some bug fixes alongside a lot of new multiplayer content including new multiplayer game modes.

To celebrate the release of the new update, Bethesda is hosting a Double XP weekend starting now. That’s right, anyone playing DOOM multiplayer will earn twice the amount of XP they would normally get for each match. This should make it faster for those trying to get the Rank 5 achievement/trophy this weekend.

DOOM Update 2 must be downloaded before you can resume online play.  Depending on your platform and if you already had the previous game patch installed, Update 2 can weigh in at around 12-13GB.

DOOM is out now on PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Final Day For Windows 7 and Windows 8 Users to Upgrade to Windows 10 For Free July 29, 2016

If you’re using a Windows 7 or Windows 8 equipped computer  (either purchased at retail or bundled with your new PC) today is your final day to upgrade that computer to Windows 10 completely free of charge.

Windows 10 brought a lot of new features to the PC including native integration with Xbox Live, a new version of DirectX, an improved Windows Store, native support for new hardware, and a lot more.  It’s also required to play recent games including Remedy’s Quantum Break.

If you have been holding off upgrading your system until the last possible minute, today is that final minute.  You can currently upgrade to Windows 10 either through Windows Update or by downloading the Media Creation Tool.

In the highly unlikely event you are asked for a CD-Key, the Windows 10 installer will accept your Windows 7 or Windows 8 Key until the deadline ends. However, as long as you use it before the deadline passes you will be able to reuse it if you ever need to reinstall Windows 10.

Just wanted to give players a friendly reminder. The second free update for DOOM is getting released later today on all of the game’s platforms. In anticipation for this update, publisher Bethesda has announced they will be bringing the game’s multiplayer servers down from 12PM-3PM Eastern Time.

During the game’s scheduled downtime it is highly unlikely that players will be able to access the game’s multiplayer features, but this will only be temporary. We will keep you posted on when the servers go back up.
