Remember Doom 4? It's not dead! And it's now just called Doom, presumably. And there's going to be a beta.

Anyone who preorders a copy of the upcoming Wolfenstein: The New Order will gain access to the Doom beta. But Bethesda isn't saying when that beta might be. Or what platforms it will be on. It is saying, however, that you'll need to be over 18 to participate. Sounds like it might be a bit gory, then.

More information can be found on Bethesda's Doom beta site.

Bethesda said last April that an earlier version of Doom 4 had been scrapped and the project was being rebooted. "An earlier version of Doom 4 did not exhibit the quality and excitement that id and Bethesda intend to deliver and that Doom fans worldwide expect," said Bethesda marketing man Pete Hines at the time.

"As a result, id refocused its efforts on a new version of Doom 4 that promises to meet the very high expectations everyone has for this game and this franchise. When we're ready to talk about the Doom 4 id is making, we will let folks know."

Wolfenstein: The New Order will be released for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC on May 20.
