DOOM Eternal’s second major expansion The Ancient Gods – Part 2 is out today and, as its marketing states, is the end of the Slayer’s saga. As players prepare for the final confrontation with the Dark Lord, id Software is also looking prepping for what could come next. Speaking to Polygon, game director Hugo Martin noted that there are still some stories left to tell.

“Could we tell a story about when [the Doom Slayer] first came to that place with the Sentinels, almost like a more medieval setting, a fantasy setting? I think as you play the DLC, too, you’ll see lots of hints of what we could do moving forward. Maybe even in the future. Again, our hero is somewhat timeless – I mean, literally, he’s immortal. So we could tell all kinds of stories.” Martin described it “as if Sam Raimi was given a Transformers budget to go make a sequel to The Evil Dead – that’s what Doom feels like, to us.”

Martin has previously discussed other interesting ideas for the shooter, like potentially introducing a female Slayer with her own unique fighting style. id Software is also currently working on enhancing the game for Xbox Series X/S and PS5. Suffice it to say that support isn’t coming to an end just yet.

DOOM Eternal is currently available for Xbox One, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia. You can check out our review for base game here. The Ancient Gods – Part 2 will be adding a new weapon, the Hellbreaker, along with new foes, story missions and areas. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
