QuakeCon is like Christmas morning for fans of games such as Quake, Wallenstein, Fallout & of course DOOM. Even though this year’s QuakeCon At Home is an all digital event; there are still plenty of pleasant surprises for fans attending. We’ve got a new DLC announcement and an exclusive skin to look at, so it’s time to RIP AND TEAR!
The Ancient Gods
The Ancient Gods (Part One) is an upcoming story DLC for DOOM Eternal, which looks to pick up where the initial game left off. The Story DLC looks to take place on Urdak (Heaven); the realm of the Makyr race that is overrun by demonic forces. It also reveals that Vega, the AI companion of The Slayer, is actually The Father (God) – as was teased in DOOM Eternal’s main campaign.
The trailer also reveals some new enemies that are unique to Urdak itself. From a massive reconstructed Tyrant engulfed in blue flames, to a new large Maykr enemy class wielding a magical spear. The cover-art also teases the return of the Summoner Demon from DOOM 2016, as a small but noticeable Easter-egg in the background.
