Doom Eternal‘s first expansion, The Ancient Gods Part 1, is set to make its debut at Gamescom Opening Night Live on August 27, 2020.
We don’t know a whole lot about the expansion, beyond the piece of art above, but based on the name we can expect it to focus on the higher echelon of demons, with us maybe even getting around to ripping and tearing some of them apart. When it comes to what we will see at the show, we can expect a trailer with gameplay and narrative beats giving us a good look at what we can expect from the expansion. We might also get a release date.
