Bethesda reveals Part One of Doom Eternal's first campaign expansion, "The Ancient Gods"

By Heidi Nicholas,
Bethesda has now revealed Part One of the first campaign expansion for Doom Eternal, The Ancient Gods, with a 40 second teaser trailer. A full reveal trailer arrives in a few weeks, on August 27th at 2pm ET, as part of Gamescom's Opening Night Live.

The expansion description reads, "Your victory over Hell’s armies pulled humanity back from the edge of extinction, but it came at a cost. An imbalance of power in the heavens requires the true ruler of this universe to rise and set things right. Wage war across never-before-seen realms of the DOOM Universe and fight against new demons in your never-ending battle against the forces of evil."

Bethesda adds that this expansion will take you to "previously uncharted realms of the DOOM universe," to "confront a new challenge head-on." The Ancient Gods is part of the Year One Pass and will be included in the Deluxe Edition of Doom Eternal, as well as being available for digital purchase.

There's not too much information on this expansion as Bethesda seems to be saving the best details for a full reveal event at Gamescom later in August, but we'll let you know if we learn anything more before then.

Bethesda also recently announced that Doom Eternal and The Elder Scrolls Online are getting free Xbox Series X upgrades, meaning if you've bought either game, you'll be able to upgrade to the Xbox Series X version for no extra cost. Bethesda is also working on backwards compatibility for both titles.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
