The first official update for DOOM Eternal is here! With it comes Empowered Demons, Event Series 3, single-player campaign updates, BATTLEMODE changes and much more.
Some of the new features and updates coming in Update 1:
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.
Event Series 3 – Today kicks off Event Series 3 in DOOM Eternal, dubbed the Precious Metals event, 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
