As per Keighley's tweet: “Don’t miss the world premiere of The Ancient Gods: Part 1, the new campaign expansion of Doom Eternal during Gamescom Opening Night Live, streaming live on August 27."


Expect another slice of single-player content to be added to the already robust campaign featured in the base game.

It seems crazy to think that Doom Eternal came out this year, launching in March. The game was received well by critics and fans alike, but since then its soundtrack has been the subject of controversy.

The game's composer, Mick Gordon, was not involved in the much of the game's final soundtrack mix. According to developers id, this was due to Gordon requesting more time late in the process.

The fallout of this means that Gordon won't be contributing to the DLC's soundtrack, which is a real shame. Still, we're sure we'll have a lot of fun blasting apart demons regardless.


Publisher Bethesda also confirmed that Doom Eternal will make the jump to both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in the coming months with a free upgrade to the next-gen versions for existing owners.

These will come with extra bells and whistles, although those haven't been detailed yet.
