Doom Eternal Update 1

Bethesda Softworks has launched the first official update for DOOM Eternal. You can check out the preview showcasing all the new features below.

Update 1 for the game includes a number of new features, such as Empowered Demons, the Precious Metals event, tweaks to Battlemode multiplayer, and more. Here’s the rundown:

* Empowered Demons – Avenge fallen Slayers by killing empowered variants of demons that took those players out. These demons offer a greater challenge and provide large amounts of resources and bonus event XP when defeated.

* Precious Metals Event – Today kicks off the latest event in DOOM Eternal, dubbed Precious Metals, offering shiny new cosmetics to work toward including the MC Pain Master Collection! Players can simply hop into BATTLEMODE, Campaign, or complete weekly challenges to start advancing their event progress XP now.

* Single Player Quality-of-Life Improvements – Since launch, we’ve been listening to players’ feedback and Update 1 addresses some of the top issues we’re hearing. Some of these changes include expanded demon tutorials, the ability to dash vertically in water and reducing toxic damage while swimming.

Also, here are the new suite of features and changes to the Battlemode experience:

o Deaths in BATTLEMODE now display a death report to show players what killed them

o Prestige stars now appear under the player card to highlight the most dedicated players

o Addressed latency and lag issues

o Tutorials now appear for all players when playing BATTLEMODE for the first time

o Echelon Leveling for players at the maximum level

Update 1 is available for the game now. DOOM Eternal is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. A Nintendo Switch version is in the works for a release at a later date.
