New Doom teaser gives a taste of multiplayer mayhem across nine maps

While the multiplayer beta (opens in new tab) doesn't begin until March 31 and the full game won't be out until May 13, you can still put a little more Doom (opens in new tab) in your day thanks to a new teaser and map details from Bethesda. The demon slaughter simulator will come with nine maps when it launches, and they range from hellish to actual, literal Hell. Take a look:

Bethesda has also provided descriptions of each scenic locale, should you wish to collect them into a brochure and try to sell your loved ones on a trip to sunny Mars.

Excavation: A modest-sized UAC mining outpost. Watch out for the rock grinder!
Infernal: A mid-sized Hell map with both interior and exterior elements. Lots of platforms and chasms, along with teleporters.
Chasm: This massive map takes you deep below the polar ice caps of Mars. A great place to play Freeze Tag.
Disposal: This smaller map is the main waste processing facility for the UAC research and residential complexes. Unsurprisingly, it's full of radioactive slime.
Helix: This is where they experiment on demons and develop advanced weaponry. Which, naturally, makes it perfect for a quick round of Clan Arena.
Perdition: Disjointed and sadistic, this ancient arena is populated by the agonized moans of unfortunate souls who have suffered within its realm.
Sacrilegious: Set within a fracture of Hell, this map offers clear lines of sight. Move fast… or die faster.
Heatwave: An industrial UAC facility with glistening halls that will soon be slicked with human (and demon) blood.
Beneath: Before being beamed to Earth, the energies of Hell are harnessed in this symmetrical and cavernous location.
