Heads up! As of the new update released today, the season pass has been retired and all DLC will now be free!

They are also offering free trial weekends for PC, PS4 and Xbox One

Details from the link:

All of the Multiplayer DLC Unlocked for All

First, we’ve retired the DOOM season pass and are making all of the multiplayer DLC content available to all players. That’s three multiplayer DLC packs, which include nine of our best maps, three additional guns, three additional playable demons, new equipment, armor sets and more. That’s on top of the modes and features, like bot support, that players have been enjoying since late last year.

Free Weekends
If you’re someone who just hasn’t tried DOOM yet, we’re giving you the ultimate opportunity to try out one of the most talked about games of 2016. Starting at 12:00 pm ET on Thursday, July 20, on Xbox One, 1pm ET on Thursday, July 20 on PC, and 12:00 pm ET on Thursday, July 27 on PlayStation 4, you can try DOOM for free. Blast hordes of demons in the first two levels of DOOM’s critically acclaimed campaign, then ratchet up the intensity by going for a high-score in Arcade Mode. Plus, you’ll also have unlimited access to DOOM’s multiplayer and SnapMap modes for the duration of the weekend. If you choose to purchase during the free weekend, all of your progress in campaign and multiplayer is saved and you’ll continue right from where you left off.

great news but annoying for people who have allready payed

I got the season pass for BF1 and wish i didn't (_;) less people play on the new maps (not that there's a lot of maps to choose from because of how long it's taking DICE to release them) and you can keep trying it for free anyway

hopefully season passes are a thing of the past, devs should offer cosmetic DLC only so the community doesn't get divided

I don't buy season passes for this reason

This update is really huge... did they add PS4 Pro support?
Cool. Thanks for the heads up.
Update wont install for me . I have external drive with lots of space thought maybe because doom was downloaded on the internal drive but I have hitman on that to and all updates still install . Maybe because the new doom update is so big maybe . Have delete and reinstall whole thing on external drive .

Yep I'm waiting on Battlefield 1 DICE to make all the season pass maps free, they have a tendency to do so after about a year and a half from the game release date judging from previous games.

So for those who intend to play this on console (PS4 / XBOX One) am i right it will show as "free download" when you go to download it?
Edited by: "ArticIcon" 20th Jul 2017
All of the expansions are shown as unavailable on the store to me

It says free play days, not anything about DLC... anyone actually know for certain instead of trying to be smart?

It says they are retiring the season pass
If you check the Doom Full Game description it now states the below -

Now includes all three premium DLC packs (Unto the Evil, Hell Followed, and Bloodfall), maps, modes, and weapons, as well as all feature updates including Arcade Mode, Photo Mode, and the latest Update 6.66, which brings further multiplayer improvements as well as revamps multiplayer progression.

I guess the patch download will include all this so you will not have to download the packs from the store?
- time to clear up 60GB from my laptop HDD
I know what my plan is weekend
Happy days! Just bought this from Tesco yesterday for £9.
how to download?
I wish they would make it so you could only install the single player. The multiplayer in DOOM wasn't great and it takes up a load of space. It also seem pointless now we have Quake Champions. I just wish they'd used the DOOM engine!

It's on steam. You'll need to wait until the free weekend.

I think they've basically learnt it doesn't work now. Overwatch has shown the value of not splitting the community and just how much money can be made from cosmetics.
