Doom Eternal DLC Screenshots Tease First Campaign Expansion

Doom Eternal Xbox Game Pass October PC, DLC, id Software, bethesda

Bethesda and id Software have provided a first look at Doom Eternal’s DLC by way of new screenshots. The official Doom Twitter account posted the images today, reminding players that content for the violent FPS is still rolling out.

The story content seen above teases little but still presents reassurance that the massive scale seen in Doom Eternal will return. The above pictures are from the first of two campaign expansions on the way.

We don’t know much about the DLC for Doom Eternal besides what was described to come as part of the game’s season pass on Steam:

“The Slayer’s legend grows… Your victory over Hell’s armies pulled humanity back from the edge of extinction, but it came at a cost. An imbalance of power in the heavens requires the true ruler of this universe to rise and set things right. Wage war across never-before-seen realms of the Doom Universe, fight against new demons, and wield new abilities in your never-ending battle against the forces of evil.”

We recently learned that the Doom Eternal DLC’s music won’t be created by series composer Mick Gordon. After a falling out between Gordon and id Software, studio director Marty Stratton confirmed via Reddit that Gordon would not return.

Doom Eternal launched for Google Stadia, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on March 20, 2020. Bethesda, id, and Panic Button still have a Nintendo Switch version planned to launch later this year.
