Doom Eternal: The Ancient Gods Launch Trailer Brings The Pain

The first part of the Doom: Eternal Ancient Gods DLC is here and it brings with it an epic new launch trailer to get that new content hype higher than the flames of hell. 

Doom Eternal launched to brilliant praise and has seen several smaller content drops leading up to now, mostly cosmetic options. Now a new adventure arises with the first part of the Ancient Gods DLC as players get ready to go head-to-head in Maykr's realm.

"Your mission is now your own," reads the trailer's official description. "The legions of Hell have razed the heavens, threatening to expand their control across dimensions. Unleash your vengeance and battle back to the Maykr’s realm. Defeat powerful new threats, restore order to the heavens and unearth the corruption that has thrown the universe into chaos."

With a new story comes new achievements to unlock. Even better for Game Pass owners? The base part of the game is completely free to play for members of the Xbox subscription service. 

As for the new expansion, the slaying of Khan Makyr threw the entire balance of creation off-kilter, meaning that danger looms for all in the wake of this vacuum. As the legions of Hell continue their assault, it is up to players to join up with an old ally in order to save the fate of everyone ... and we do mean everyone. 

Doom Eternal: Ancient Gods part one is now available! Are you going to be dropping in on day one? Thoughts on the latest iteration of Doom? Sound off with those fiery thoughts in the comment section below!
