The upcoming update, the date for which has not yet been declared, will include a slew of enhancements and additions.

One exciting new game mode is Empowered Demon in the campaign mode. In this mode, when a Slayer falls to a demon, that demon is “beefed up and transported to another player’s game to fight again.” A player who slays one such Empowered Demon will gain health, ammo, and bonus XP gain.

Additionally, the update will also bring in a few much-needed fixes to the single-player campaign like “expanded demon tutorials, dashing vertically in water and adjusting toxic damage while swimming.”

There is one let-down, however, that will certainly be noticeable in the DLC. Recent reports confirmed that id Software and Doom Eternal’s music composer, Mick Gordon, had a falling out. Sadly, they could not resolve their differences, and hence, we will not be enjoying Gordon’s badass score in the DLC.

Apart from that, everything else is set to bring us a ton of new content to entertain us for a few weeks more. Watch this space for an update on the release date for the DLC.
