Bethesda has begun sending out more invites to players to help test the alpha version of Doom.

The test will begin Thursday, December 3rd 2015 @ 10 pm Eastern, with a Burst test at 4 pm Eastern on the 5th, and ending at midnight Eastern time on the 6th. “The DOOM MP Closed Alpha is a series of development-driven tests designed to stress test the game’s dedicated server infrastructure in a real-world end user environment. It is not the Beta (offered with Wolfenstein®: The New Order™ pre-order), a demo, or representative of the final game.” In addition, Bethesda stated: “For updates on the Alpha, be sure to follow @DOOM on Twitter“.

The Alpha will feature 1 multiplayer map: Heatwave. An industrial-themed map will place players in an arena setting featuring plenty of armor, ammo, and health pickups. Narrow corridors, walkways and small chambers all link to a central, open area of the map, providing players with a variety of environments that suit varying playstyles, as well as the focus point for fighting over key power-ups. There will be one multiplayer mode available(6 vs 6 Team Deathmatch), one demon(Revenant), one power weapon(Gauss Cannon), 6 regular weapons(Vortex Rifle, Super Shotgun, Repeater, Rocket Launcher, Static Cannon, and the Plasma Rifle), and 2 equipment items(the Personal Teleporter and Frag Grenade).

This will be the second Alpha Test for Doom(the first started Oct 24th), and will be on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
