More On: Doom Eternal

Being an adult without anywhere near the time to play as I did in my younger years, I have a backlog a mile long. With Eternal's release, I finally made the time to jump into 2016's Doom, and man is that game incredible. I finally finished the main campaign last night and can't wait to play the sequel. 

For those of you already on the sequel, Doom Eternal has just crossed over from base game content into Update 1 mode. The highlights, from the press release:

  • Empowered Demons – Avenge fallen Slayers by killing empowered variants of demons that took those players out. These demons offer a greater challenge and provide large amounts of resources and bonus event XP when defeated
  • Precious Metals Event – Kicks off the latest event in DOOM Eternal, dubbed Precious Metals, offering shiny new cosmetics to work toward including the MC Pain Master Collection! Players can simply hop into BATTLEMODE, Campaign, or complete weekly challenges to start advancing their event progress XP now.
  • Single Player Quality-of-Life Improvements – Since launch, we’ve been listening to players’ feedback and Update 1 addresses some of the top issues we’re hearing. Some of these changes include expanded demon tutorials, the ability to dash vertically in water and reducing toxic damage while swimming.
  • BATTLEMODE Updates – We’re adding a suite of features designed to improve the overall experience in BATTLEMODE:
    • Deaths in BATTLEMODE now display a death report to show players what killed them
    • Prestige stars now appear under the player card to highlight the most dedicated players
    • Addressed latency and lag issues
    • Tutorials now appear for all players when playing BATTLEMODE for the first time
    • Echelon Leveling for players at the maximum level

Update 1 is free for all players
