If you got through Doom Eternal's campaign and were left wanting (1) more lore and (2) more demons to annihilate, it looks like the single-player DLC will be right up your alley. As revealed today during QuakeCon at Home, Eternal's first campaign expansion is called "The Ancient Gods, Part One," and it's going to pick up right where id Software left the story.
Beyond the name and this new, short teaser, other details on this first part of Eternal's DLC remain slim. Humanity's been saved by the Doom Slayer, but now "the true ruler" of the Doom universe is coming to do something about the imbalance of power between Heaven and Hell. Along with all the blasting, punching, and slicing, it seems like we're in for another heavy dose of Doom worldbuilding (for better or worse, depending on how you feel about Eternal's approach to its story).
It seems safe to assume that the next single-player expansion after The Ancient Gods, Part One will continue its story, but id hasn't confirmed that this is a two-parter. Two pieces of single-player DLC are confirmed for Eternal's Year One pass, but perhaps The Ancient Gods will continue on into another season pass. After all, Doom Eternal will be one of the first Bethesda-published titles to get a next-gen upgrade, so maybe it'll stick around for a while.
Doom Eternal has hit a few rough patches since release. In May, it was review bombed on Steam after id decided to add a kernel-level PC anti-cheat solution, which led to the Denuvo-made software's removal a short while later. That same month, id cut ties with composer Mick Gordon after a public dust-up over how Eternal's soundtrack was handled. Gordon will not serve as composer for The Ancient Gods DLC.
We'll get a look at the full trailer for The Ancient Gods, Part One at Gamescom's Opening Night Live later this month, which starts on August 27 at 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT. There's still no release date set for this first chunk of DLC, but it seems like the proper reveal would be as good a time as any to announce it.
