Despite being released last March, Doom Eternal, which has a great player base, will receive its first major expansion pack to increase its player base.
Bethesda and id Software have stated that they plan to announce the expansion, Doom Eternal – The Ancient Gods Part One, at the Gamescom Opening Night Live event on August 27. They didn’t reveal many details about the show, but they said they will release the first official trailer for the expansion later that day.
Doom Eternal’s executive producer Marty Stratton and game director Hugo Martin met at QuakeCon 2020, which kicked off last Friday, to give some more details on what players will expect.
“Hell shattered, heaven shattered, and the legend of the Hunter grew,” Martin said during the QuakeCon live stream. “The rage of destruction saved humanity from extinction, but it came at a price. Now there is an imbalance of power in the heavens and the true ruler of the Doom universe must stand up to put things right.”
Martin described the upcoming DLC as “cool” and said it would feel like a “comic book”.
Doom Eternal was released for console, PC and Google Stadia platforms last March. The game is a direct sequel to Doom and tells the story of hell demons invading Earth to kill humans. The Ancient Gods will come to the game after the main story is completed.
