Billed as the "Ultimate" Doom, not to be confused with the 1995 Ultimate, the update debuts in time for a free weekend for players that have yet to give the game a try.

"Game publisher #Bethesda has recently announced that "#Doom" has launched #Update 6.66 and it will unlock all DLCs, free weekends, and much more.

New Rune System - The all-new Runes replace the Hack Module system. They delivered nine maps, three more guns and three playable demons, plus armor customizations and special abilities.

Doom was probably 2016's greatest surprise.

What knocked 'Gangnam Style' from YouTube's most-watched spot?
As has been the case for quite some time, Psy's Gangnam Style has held the title for the most-viewed video uploaded to YouTube . Both tracks have had years to accumulate views, but they could see competition from No. 5 on the most-watched list.

Interestingly, the developer also made a decision to completely rehaul the game's multiplayer progression system and mechanics.

The game never had any single-player DLC as all of the paid content was specific to the game's multiplayer modes. This weekend, Xbox Live Gold members will be able to play Doom, including all its DLC, in all its glory.

The update has also completely revamped the game's multiplayer progression system, doing away with the random unlocks. The publishers think that all of the players, old and new, will like this new system and will not have any long term problems. "Starting at 12:00 pm ET on Thursday, July 20, on Xbox One, 1pm ET on Thursday, July 20 on PC, and 12:00 pm ET on Thursday, July 27 on PlayStation 4, you can try DOOM for free". This will simply make it so any of the items you haven't already unlocked will be subject to the new system. The free weekend comes with access to two levels of DOOM's campaign, Arcade Mode and unlimited access in multiplayer and SnapMap modes. Longtime players will want to know that their levels will be resetting to zero. Players will also find improvements to the in-game HUD and various menus.

Veteran players will have the option to reset their unlock progression and experience the new progression system fresh, or retain all of their existing guns, equipment, demons and customization options that they've acquired or purchased while unlocking some of the new items in the revised progression system. You'll also get a badge to show off your veteran status. A free play event will begin on all platforms over the remainder of the month, while the game itself will be on sale for just $15/£12/AU$18 during the free promotion.
