Doom Eternal Ancient Gods Part 1 release date set for 20 October

The Doom Eternal The Ancient Gods Part 1 DLC release date was confirmed for 20 October overnight at Gamescom.

“The first of a two-part story expansion for Doom Eternal: The Ancient Gods, Part One casts players once again as the Doom Slayer to confront an ancient evil awoken from an imbalance in the heavens,” Bethesda said of the DLC.

“Ripping and tearing through never-before-seen locations in the DOOM universe, players will face off against fierce new demons and discover a new chapter in the DOOM Slayer’s story.”

Doom Eternal is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One and Switch; a next-gen offering on Xbox Series X and PS5 is in the works, free for those who own the title on current-gen.
