DOOM Eternal: The Ancient Gods - Part 1 Launch Trailer Features a Hell of a Lot of Demon Killing

Heavy metal, demon killing, blood; yep, this is definitely the launch trailer for the first part of the DOOM Eternal: The Ancient Gods DLC.

October 20, 2020

With its release this past March, DOOM Eternal brought us back into the folds of Hell as the Doom Slayer fought off hordes of demons to reclaim Earth from their clutches. Naturally, despite his best efforts, there is more demon killing to be done, and that’s clear from the get-go with the launch of the game’s The Ancient Gods DLC today.

Publisher Bethesda Softworks has released the official launch trailer for DOOM Eternal: The Ancient Gods – Part 1, which is the first of the game’s two-part story DLC expansion. As you can expect based on the campaign from the base game, The Ancient Gods features more demons to kill alongside plenty of new enemies to dismember, with an extra added dose of badass heavy metal music to rip and tear to.


You can check out the full trailer for the DLC’s launch below:

The Ancient Gods DLC was announced earlier this year by Bethesda, with the first act of the two-part story DLC debuting today, and Part 2 coming at a later date. Notably, the entire DLC expansion is a standalone release and does not require that players own the base game in order to play it. Part 1 is available now on its own for $19.99 on every platform, while players can also purchase the DOOM Eternal Year One Pass for $29.99, which will include both parts of the campaign DLC.

With the “Year One” tag tied to it, it’s clear that Bethesda and id Software will have more in store for DOOM Eternal down the line after its release this past spring. Specifically, it was confirmed by the publisher that the game will be coming to next-gen consoles next year as a free upgrade for PS5 and Xbox Series X/Series S for those that own the game on current-gen platforms.

DOOM Eternal is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC, with the game also coming to PS5, Xbox Series X/Series S, and Nintendo Switch at a later date.
