So here’s the deal: if you want beta access to DOOM 4 (now, simply, DOOM, which isn’t the best of signs in this remake-crowded era) you need to pre-order the game. The FAQ currently says this:
I’ve just pre-ordered Wolfenstein, where’s my DOOM beta key?
An insert will be included inside your boxed copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order. This insert will include a key code along with code redemption instructions. 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.
So does this mean it has to be a boxed copy? I know I’m not alone when I say I’d rather pre-order through Steam.
