Doom Update 1.08 Today Is 19GB, Adds Arcade Mode & New Multiplayer Modes

October 19, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

Doom update 1.08 (aka Free Update 4) is now live on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Bethesda has announced. Reportedly a 19GB download on PS4, and 11.6GB on PC, today’s update adds Arcade Made, which turns the campaign into a competitive, score-based challenge:

Play every level with all guns, Runes, and equipment upgrades fully unlocked. Customize your Doom Marine’s gear, guns and Praetor suit before each run to see what combinations will give you an edge. Compete against friends and players worldwide for the highest score by attacking demons quickly, avoiding their attacks and grabbing multipliers along the way. This is a perfect opportunity to replay one of the best single-player FPS experiences of 2016, and for the speed runners out there to make their mark. Good luck!

As the full patch notes show, update 1.08 also adds Classic Doom modules to SnapMap, brings the Possession (Prowlers vs Marines; killed Marines become Prowlers) and Bloodrush (a meter gradually drains, forcing you to kill and assist to prolong your life) modes to multiplayer, and much more:
