If you enjoyed DOOM and for you one of the negative points was the absence of DLC for the singleplayer mode, it is time for your sadness to turn into happiness as the story will be different in DOOM Eternal as the development team confirmed that in this installment they will concentrate efforts to launch content for a single player, although that will have to pay a price.
After presenting in QuakeCon 2018 the new and brutal gameplay trailer of DOOM Eternal, Marty Stratton, the director of the FPS, revealed that for this release they will focus on other aspects of the game, specifically in the section for a single player.
In this sense, the creator informed that this means that they will have to dispense with the SnapMap mode, which worked in the previous release as a level editing tool: “Right now we don’t plan on bringing SnapMap back into DOOM Eternal. We’re really focusing those resources on doing some of the things that players wanted more from us post-launch.”
That said, Stratton revealed that DOOM Eternal will have DLC for singleplayer mode, something that the DOOM players wanted and could not do: “This time around we’re gonna bet on ourselves, and making content that we know people want – because they’ve asked for it a lot since 2016. And that’s what a lot of those resources are going to go towards. ”
DOOM Eternal is in development for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch and is expected to debut sometime next year.
