The first major update to Doom Eternal brings a ton of features, fixes, and enhancements to the game. Here’s a look at of some features to look forward to.

Empowered Demons

When a player is killed in the single-player campaign, the demon that felled them is beefed up and transported to another player’s game to fight again! Take out an Empowered Demon and you’ll not only be rewarded with tons of health and ammo, but also bonus XP to progress in-game events.

Single-Player Quality-of-Life Improvements

The team at id Software has heard community feedback on the single-player campaign and Update 1 addresses a few balance concerns and annoyances players have asked about. Some of these changes include expanded demon tutorials, Dashing vertically in water and adjusting toxic damage while swimming.

Battlemode Enhancements

A suite of features designed to improve the overall experience in Battlemode is being added. Some of these additions include changes to the tutorial walkthrough, poor network connection indicators, Echelon Leveling for players at the maximum level and a Death Report screen to offer players more combat insight mid-match. Learn more about the vision in this developer diary video featuring game director Hugo Martin and executive producer Marty Stratton.

In addition, console-exclusive adjustments and other balance changes ensuring the experience is just right on individual platforms are ongoing. Players can also look forward to the free additions of new playable demons and maps to the mode later this year.

Those are just some of the big changes expected to arrive with Update 1 – read the full details at More information on Doom Eternal’s Invasion mode and the first DLC expansion is yet to come!
