The free event will give players access to the game's first two campaign missions, as well as complete access to the multiplayer and SnapMap modes.

Doom is also being offered for half price on Xbox One ($19.98 AUD) and PS4 ($17.95 AUD). The user interface and menus are also being updated in 6.66, with new post-match summaries and lobbies that have better player statuses, among other things.

It all starts today with the release of Update 6.66. These changes will only affect future unlocks and new players. Those who have achieved max Slayer level for example, a special designated Slayer badge is granted.

Considering the free weekend and the lowered price of only $14.99 for the game and all the accompanying DLCs, an influx of new players is only to be expected.
