A GameStop representative tells GameSpot the codes will be "limited in supply" and will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis. You can find a GameStop store near you here.

We also confirmed with GameStop that codes will be available on all Doom platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

As announced earlier this week, the Doom closed multiplayer beta runs March 31 through April 3. Players who preordered Wolfenstein: The New Order and redeemed their beta code will have access to the closed beta period, though it's not immediately clear if there are also other ways (outside of this and the GameStop promotion) to get in. More information on can be found on the official website.

Doom is slated for a May 13 release date. Developer id Software recently held a competition allowing fans to vote upon their favoured design for a reverse sleeve cover for the game--check out the winning art design here.
