DOOM Eternal’s campaign DLC is The Ancient Gods, first teaser released

Bethesda and id Software have confirmed the name of the DOOM Eternal campaign expansion and it is called The Ancient Gods. The Ancient Gods will be split into two parts, and the first look will occur on August 27th at gamescom’s Opening Night Live event. It looks like the expansion will take place on both Earth and Urdak, the home world of the Makyrs. It also seems that The Ancient Gods happens after the events of the main campaign following Doomguy’s trip to Urdak. A teaser is posted below.


Recently DOOM Eternal received an update that brought back weapon quick switch for both the campaign and battlemode. You can check out the rest of the DOOM Eternal patch notes below.
