Duke it out on fresh turf with the next major Update to DOOM Eternal, out later this week! On top of a host of improvements, bug fixes and new content for DOOM Eternal’s in-game events, Update 2 brings a whole new arena for BATTLEMODE!

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!
