Doom gets arcade mode and classic modules in Free Update 4 - Rip and Tear

Bethesda just detailed Doom’s Free Update 4.

Arcade Mode and Classic modules have been added to Doom. Arcade mode lets you play with everything unlocked from the start as you aim to set a high score. Arcade mode will be super fun to replay one of my favourite single player campaigns in a while with customized loadouts. Doom SnapMap gets classic Doom modules that look great even today. Check out the video below:
