Doom Eternal: The Ancient Gods was released today. The new Expansion pack is available for players that have purchased the Year One Pass or Deluxe Edition of the game. You can also purchase the DLC separately, which will give you access to Battle Mode (the multiplayer portion of the base game.) Check out our previous article for more information.

Just because a new DLC is released doesn’t mean that developer id Software forgot about the base game. Update 3 for Doom Eternal was also released today. The update is available for everyone, so it doesn’t matter whether you purchased the expansion pack or not. Update 3 brings some much-needed changes and also includes a plethora of bug fixes.

Players who have reported other players for toxic behavior will get a notification if an action has been taken against the reported players. Update 3 also readies Doom Eternal for the upcoming ‘Thanksgibbing Event’, and of course, a new event will bring new cosmetics skins for players to unlock. Battle Mode also received some changes including balancing tweaks to Archvile, Pain Elemental, and Mancubus.

The complete patch notes of the update are mentioned below and on the official site.
