Doom is perhaps the most iconic, and most instantly recognizable game of a generation and it’s coming to iOS later this year. If you’re quick, you might even get the chance to play it free.

While the game isn’t coming to the App Store and won’t be an iOS game per se, Bethesda is on the lookout for people to help test a new game streaming service that will allow players to enjoy games like Doom, and others, on multiple devices.

Bethesda new game streaming system, announced during E3 and dubbed Orion, will be exclusive to iOS during the testing phase and the company is in need of people to take it for a spin ahead of its official launch.

Bethesda Softworks, the publisher behind the popular Elder Scrolls and Fallout game franchises, announced that it’s also hopping on the game streaming bandwagon – but not in the way you might think.

The company’s Orion tech is a framework that optimizes cloud gaming performance, so as to reduce latency by up to 20 percent per frame, and to reduce bandwidth requirements by up to 40 percent. Orion is meant to be integrated into game engines to make this magic happen […]

Bethesda will publicly test Orion by allowing gamers to stream the company’s 2016 blockbuster FPS, DOOM, on iOS devices – without installing the game locally; Android and PC streaming will follow soon after. Just don’t expect multiplayer in the initial trial.

If all that sounds interesting – and it really should – then you can sign up for the trial right now. The company says that the number of available testing slots is limited, although if you don’t get in, there’s still a consolation prize on offer.

For a chance to be among the first in the world to stream DOOM (2016) using Orion technology – for free – all you need to do is Sign Up / Log In to the Slayers Club below. You will receive 50 Slayers Club points for registering even if not chosen to participate in the public trial of Orion. The first trial will be for iOS 11+ devices; however, your registration will be logged for future interest in participation on other platforms, including PC and Android. Get ready to rip and tear in a whole new way!
