DOOM’s First Post-Release Update Adds Photo Mode, Classic Weapon Placement Option

The first update for the new DOOM will include a new Photo Mode, as well as the option to place the weapon in the center of the screen.

Bethesda announced the contents of an upcoming update for DOOM today, the first such update since the game’s release. In addition to general improvements and fixes for various bugs, the update includes two big additions — a Photo Mode for taking in-game screenshots, and an option to place the weapon in the center of the screen, in a nod to the classic games in the series.

According to Bethesda, players will be able to enable the new Photo Mode through the game settings in the pause menu, after launching a mission through Mission Select. In addition, the classic weapon placement option will be available in all modes, and Bethesda provided a screenshot (shown below) to show it in action.

This update comes after a “multiplayer improvement patch” earlier this month. In that patch, weapons were balanced according to community feedback, and the lead time for online lobbies was shortened, in addition to other tweaks and fixes.

Update #1 for DOOM will be released this Thursday, June 30th, for PS4, Xbox One, and Steam users. You can read through the full list of improvements and fixes included in this update here.
