The '''Doom press release beta''', the final pre-release build of the game to be distributed externally, was released on October 4, 1993. It was intended for use by journalists to allow them to trial the game before its release. The beta is time sensitive and will not start if the DOS system time is later than October 31, 1993. A utility created by Lee Killough is bundled with the public release on the idgames archive which locks the system time into range while it is resident in memory, allowing play to proceed.

The Unholy Trinity

The Unholy Trinity, or Trinity College, is a single-level PWAD designed by Steve McCrea, Simon Wall, and Elias Papavassilopoulos. As part of their 10 Years of Doom feature, Doomworld named it one of the ten best WADs of 1994.

This map uses a large number of custom textures to create striking "photorealistic" buildings and courtyards, modeled on the real Trinity College in Cambridge, England. It also features an original animation sequence and a replacement music track, which is a partial rendition of "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor" by Johann Sebastian Bach.

Trinity was originally released on August 22, 1994 (as "trinity.wad"). A second version ("trinity2.wad") was issued September 4, 1994 to fix a bug involving texture patches.
