Friday the thirteenth of May will be an especially badass day, not only because of the affiliation with Jason Voorhees, but also because Bethesda recently announced their plan to release DOOM for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
After years of being in development, the fourth installment in the DOOM franchise will bluntly bear an eponymous name and will be released alongside the Collector’s Edition of the game which pioneered the first-person shooter genre. According to the official Bethesda release:
‘Whether you’re on the surface of Mars or in the fiery depths of Hell, Friday the Thirteenth will be a very big day. On May 13, 2016, you’ll be able to shoot, punch and chainsaw your way through hordes of demons when DOOM launches on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
But why stop with simply destroying demons? If you’re seeking a real demonic possession, then you’ll want to pick up the DOOM collector’s edition. Complete with a 12-inch-tall statue of the fearsome Revenant made from high-quality PVC, the DOOM collector’s edition will add a hellish touch to any room. The Revenant, which was modeled using actual in-game 3D files, stands sentry on a base-lit turbine that slowly rotates internally, casting an eerily flickering glow onto the nightmarish glory of this iconic DOOM demon.’
The Collector’s Edition is currently priced at $119.99 NA, £99.99 UK and €129.99 EU, being available for pre-order through a limited number of retailers. Created in conjunction with Triforce, the DOOM Collector’s Edition includes an exclusive, fully-realized 12” tall collector’s statue of one of DOOM’s most iconic demons: the Revenant. Made of high-quality PVC and modeled from actual in-game 3D files, the Revenant stands on an LED-lit base with internal, slow-spinning turbine from the UAC facility on Mars. The DOOM Collector’s Edition also includes the highly-anticipated game, packaged in an exclusive metal case. Those who pre-order the item will receive the Demon Multiplayer Pack (one of a kind demon armor set with different skins, six paint colors, three logo patterns and six Hack Modules).
