Doom Eternal will be getting single-player DLC

Doom Eternal was one of the biggest announcements from Bethesda at this years E3, but sadly we've had to wait until QuakeCon to actually see a gameplay premiere. To that end, the reel certainly doesn't disappoint.

The demons have moved away from Mars to your home planet and it's up to a much more hardened version of The Doom Slayer to send them back to the bowels of Hell. Doom Slayer also has a built-in melee blade to rip and tear unholy flesh, as well as a insane shoulder-mounted flamethrower-cannon for extra insanity. The entirety of the gameplay revolves around you shooting, slicing and dicing as many demons as you can in increasingly brutal ways.

So when will players be able to relish that sweet, destructive afterglow? The post-apocalyptic online RPG was the focus of a panel and Q&A session taking place at the event, and there was a great deal discussed about the game. What we do know is that it's coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and yes, Nintendo Switch.

KitGuru Says: DOOM Eternal is looking excellent.

Old enemies have been updated for the game, and new ones have been added - including something that looks a bit like a Slayer. interesting.

To be fair, that doesn't mean that this is guaranteed to be a brand-new Doom game - it's not called Doom II after all - and there is a possibility that this could retread some familiar ground. The developers promised a lot more lore in the new game, so seemingly there's a good explanation behind it all. Thankfully, Bethesda promises additional Doom Eternal news soon so it shouldn't be long before we get more information. 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. Set to an all-new pulse pounding soundtrack composed by Mick Gordon, fight across dimensions as you slay new and classic demons with powerful new weapons and abilities.
