DOOM Eternal Update 2 now available

New BATTLEMODE map, new events, and new game improvements.

DOOM Eternal

Publisher Bethesda Softworks and developer id Software have released Update 2 for DOOM Eternal, which includes new BATTLEMODE map “Torment,” new events, and new game improvements.

Here is an outline of the update, via Bethesda.net:

Prepare for Torment

The latest map for BATTLEMODE, Torment, is almost here! Arriving in Update 2, Torment sends the Slayer and Demon team down perilous halls adorned with overgrown foliage and cryptic markings.

Mastering this map requires keen use of angles down the narrower stretches of the map. The Slayer can make use of Torment’s jump pads to cover considerable ground but be warned: A Demon’s well-placed trap around some of the arena’s tight corners could turn a maneuver into a massacre instantly!

BATTLEMODE Enhancements

In addition to adding a new map to BATTLEMODE, Update 2 also brings enhancements to DOOM Eternal’s multiplayer mode. On top of your standard bug fixes and optimizations, Update 2 will bring latency improvements and the ability to tailor separate, custom keybinds to each demon – giving you just the right setup to match how you play BATTLEMODE’s playable hellions!

That Ain’t All

Of course, we’ve got a lot more under the hood for Update 2. We’ll drop every single deet you need in the patch notes later this month when the Update releases, but look forward to quality-of-life improvements for colorblind players, an improved UX for Boosters, an increased number of Empowered Demons per map and a host of bug fixes to help make sure there’s only one kind of Torment awaiting you in DOOM Eternal!

For further details, check out the full list of changes on Bethesda.net.

DOOM Eternal is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via Steam and Bethesda.net, and Stadia. A Switch version is planned for release at a later date.
