Free Update #3, the latest update for the brutally fun Doom first-person shooter, has been released, bringing with it a feature that a lot of people have been asking for: Deathmatch, the free-for-all multiplayer mode where everyone is on their own, fragging each other to dominate the match.

"Deathmatch is a hectic mode that forgoes the comforts of team-based combat," explained Bethesda’s Jason Leavey. "Players must rely solely on their own individual skill to come out on top, with no teammates or Demon Runes to help them out. In Deathmatch, it’s every Marine for himself, so be prepared to Fight Like Hell."
