The already popular DOOM Eternal game for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, and PC is receiving its very first update soon. The expansion will grant even more horrendous fiends and new ways to deal with them the hard way. As killing the Khan Maykr left a dangerous imbalance of power for all creation, the player’s job is to battle his way back to Urdak and decide the fate of the Universe.
The DLC is entitled ‘The Ancient Gods, Part One’, and it arrives in less than a month: on October 20, you’ll get to play it on any of DOOM Eternal’s compatible platforms.
The DLC will be a standalone
There’s no need to even own the whole game in order to get your hands on ‘The Ancient Gods, Part One’ DLC. Marty Stratton, who’s the executive producer at id Software, the developer of the game itself, declared within an interview for PCGamesN:
we want the DLC to reach as many people as possible. In fact, you don’t even need to own Doom Eternal to buy the DLC and play it.
Game director Hugo Martin also declares:
Most people would associate DLC with being of smaller scope – it’s kind of like the made for TV version of the movie, and the movie was the main game,
He also added:
For us, this is very much like a two-part film – this is every bit as grand as the main game was.
If you’re willing to play DOOM Eternal on a PC, don’t expect to have that privilege if you don’t have mounted one of these graphics cards or something better: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti (4GB), GTX 1060 (3GB), GTX 1650 (4GB) or AMD Radeon R9 280(3GB), AMD Radeon R9 290 (4GB), or RX 470 (4GB). As for the required CPU, don’t expect to run the game if you have anything under these processors: Intel Core i5 @ 3.3 GHz or AMD Ryzen 3 @ 3.1 GHz.
