Doom’s multiplayer patch adds a messy free-for-all deathmatch

The new Doom had a bit of a different strategy for multiplayer when it launched earlier this year. The team at id Software focused on playing to the game’s strengths by offering play-as-a-demon game-types alongside Freeze Tag, riffs on traditional modes like Warpath (king of the hill) and the tried but true team deathmatch. The game’s next update adds free-for-all deathmatch (no cooperating with strangers on the internet required) and private matches, while an arcade mode for the single-player campaign is slated for later this fall.

Details are light at the moment, but there’s a trailer embedded below that should give you an idea of how deathmatch plays out. Spoiler: It looks like deathmatch! Not a slight against the game whatsoever, mind you, it’s just hard to make the mode look particularly unique without betraying the elegant simplicity of running around and sticking a virtual shotgun in someone’s face. Id has a Twitch stream scheduled for next week where it’ll show off more of what’s coming in the next free update.

Xbox is hosting the stream on its Twitch channel and fittingly enough, there will be a custom Doom;-themed Xbox One S up for grabs in addition to copies of the game signed by the development team. Want in? Then set a calendar reminder for next Tuesday the 13th at 1pm Eastern.

Microsoft’s Seeing AI app for the blind now reads handwriting

Artificial intelligence took center stage at Microsoft's AI Summit in San Francisco on Wednesday. Aside from announcing AI smarts for a range of software -- from Bing to Office 365 -- the tech titan is also ramping up its Seeing AI app for iOS, which uses computer vision to audibly help blind and visually impaired people to see the world around them. According to Microsoft, it's nabbed 100,000 downloads since its launch in the US earlier this year, which convinced the tech titan to bring it to 35 countries in total, including the EU.

It's also getting a bunch of new features. The app now boasts more currency recognition, adding British pounds, US dollars, Canadian dollars, and Euros to its tally. Going beyond the color in a scene, it can also spot the color of specific objects, like clothes. Plus, it's no longer restricted to just short printed text, with handwriting recognition now part of its skill set. You can also customize the voice that it uses to speak its observations out loud, and set how fast it talks.

Finally, a musical light detector alerts you to the light in an environment with an audible tone -- Microsoft claims the tool will save users from having to touch a hot bulb or LED battery to check if it's on. Despite the big update, there's still no word on an Android launch.
