Doom Eternal: The Ancient Gods – Part Two Trailer Reveals Surprise Launch Tomorrow

Doom Eternal, The Ancient Gods - Part Two, id Software, Bethesda, trailer, release date

We’ve finally been given an official trailer for Doom Eternal: The Ancient Gods – Part Two, revealing that its launch is only one day away. Doom Eternal’s second DLC pack looks to be bringing all-out war when it launches tomorrow, March 18. The Ancient Gods – Part Two sets itself up as the conclusion to the Doom Slayer’s saga, and a brief summary of the content can be found in the description box of the new trailer:

You denied the gods and awoke an ancient evil. Now rally the scattered Sentinel armies, lay siege to the last bastion of Hell, break through the fortress walls, and face the Dark Lord himself. The soul of the universe hangs in the balance. Your war against Hell ends here.

Around the time Bethesda and developer id Software initially announced they would debut today’s trailer, a few images of The Ancient Gods – Part Two seemed to leak online. Some of the locations pictured in the leak showed up in today’s footage.

Doom Eternal brought hell on Earth when it launched last March, with The Ancient Gods – Part One DLC continuing the slaughter a few months later. The game also came to Nintendo Switch (without the DLC) late last year, but it can only be purchased digitally. Meanwhile, we’re still waiting to hear more about when Doom Eternal‘s next-gen upgrade will launch.
