The Doom Slayer is back to rip and tear through even more foes, as right on schedule, the Doom Eternal expansion The Ancient Gods - Part One has landed. The story expansion continues the storyline from where the latest title ended. See the launch trailer above, featuring music from David Levy and Andrew Hulshult.
The campaign takes players to three new locations UAC Atlantica, Blood Swamps, and The Holt to fight through brand new types of enemies while also hopping through plenty of more platforming sections. Here's how the developer id Software describes the new adventure:
Slaying the Khan Maykr left an imbalance of power that threatens all of creation. The legions of Hell have razed the heavens, threatening to expand their control across dimensions. With the aid of an old ally, battle your way back to Urdak and decide the fate of the cosmos.
Even though the storyline takes place after the end of the main game, The Ancient Gods is presented as a standalone experience and does not require the ownership of Doom Eternal. The purchase also comes with access to the 2vs1 Battlemode multiplayer side. Doom Eternal also received its third title update alongside this launch, and you can see the release notes here.
The Ancient Gods - Part 1 is available across PC (Steam and Bethesda launcher), Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 for $19.99. A $29.99 Year One Pass bundle is available that includes both Part 1 and the upcoming Part 2 of the expansion campaigns. Doom Eternal Deluxe Edition owners will receive both expansions for no additional cost.
Doom Eternal arrived to Xbox Game Pass for Console subscription recently, with the PC variant of the service slated to receive the title later this year. Subscribers also receive a 10% discount on the new expansion as part of their member benefits.
