by Rainier on July 2, 2021 @ 8:12 a.m. PDT

It's Hell on Earth and only one person can repel the demonic invasion. The DOOM Slayer is back to unleash his fury upon the legions of Hell with a host of powerful new abilities, weapons and fearsome demons to put them to work on.

Experience the ultimate combination of speed and power as you rip-and-tear your way across dimensions with the next leap in push-forward, first-person combat.

As the DOOM Slayer, return to take your vengeance against the forces of Hell.

Powered by idTech 7 and set to an all-new pulse-pounding soundtrack composed by Mick Gordon, DOOM Eternal puts you in control of the unstoppable DOOM Slayer as you blow apart new and classic demons with powerful weapons in unbelievable and never-before-seen worlds.

Celebrate independence from demonic rule in DOOM Eternal’s latest in-game event! Crack out the fireworks and raise a sparkler to freedom with O SLAY CAN YOU SEE.

From July 1 to July 29, earn XP to unlock a series of patriotic, slightly pyrotechnic cosmetics for DOOM Eternal. We’ve got icons, profile banners, weapon skins and of course, awesome skins like the Ka-Blamo! Pain Elemental, Flambeau Revenant and the Patriot Slayer Master Collection!

As the name of the event implies, slaying is the key to earning XP. Beat campaign levels, complete BATTLEMODE matches and take on weekly challenges to score these red-hot unlocks. Don’t just sit there holding a lit firecracker – jump into DOOM Eternal and earn these event goodies before they go out with a bang!

"As many are aware, we intended to release a free Invasion Mode update for the game; however, the unforeseen consequences of the pandemic and remote working impacted the progress of development for this addition. Over this time, we have also seen and heard how many of you enjoy the range of gameplay and combat available in the expansions and master levels. With these factors in mind, we have decided to redirect our focus from Invasion Mode to creating a totally new single-player horde mode. We’re confident this horde mode will offer you more of the diversity and challenge you’re looking for in the game. In addition, the team continues to work on a refresh of BATTLEMODE that includes a more competitive, rank-based structure, a number of gameplay and balance updates and another new map. We expect to share more information at QuakeCon in August," said DOOM Eternal Executive Producer Marty Stratton.

Key Features: 

  • Slayer 2.0: Unleash the overwhelming power of the DOOM Slayer. With updated armor and an arsenal of new and improved equipment, including a shoulder-mounted cannon with flamethrower, extendable blade, and a new dash ability, you’re faster and deadlier than ever. Destroy every demon in your path with an upgraded array of guns and mods, including the Super Shotgun’s new Meat Hook attachment to pull yourself point blank with the faces of hell. 
  • Rip More, Tear More: Obliterate more demons than ever before, each with their own attacks and abilities. Fan-favorite classics such as the Pain Elemental, Archvile, and Arachnotron make their return, while a horde of totally-new demons join the roster including the DOOM Hunter and corrupted Marauders.  DOOM Eternal’s “destructible demons” system takes your power fantasy to new levels by ensuring that every trigger pull has never felt better.
  • All-new Invasion: As the Slayer, allow real players to invade your campaign as demons for a dramatic and unpredictable twist anytime you’re playing the campaign. Or join the ranks of the damned yourself as you become a demon and invade a friend or other player’s campaign.  Invade others either by yourself or with another player, as part of a hunting party, to give the Slayer a true taste of Hell.
  • We’re Not on Mars Anymore: Rip and tear across epic, never-before-seen worlds. Witness the tumbling skyscrapers of Hell on Earth; battle through an invasion of the mammoth BFG 10,000 on Phobos; and discover the ancient secrets of the DOOM universe. With idTech7, every environment is brought to life in unprecedented detail.

Doom Eternal is currently available for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC.
