Unto the Evil, DOOM’s first DLC, launches August 5!
The first premium multiplayer DLC will launch on August 5. The DLC includes three new multiplayer maps (Catalyst, Ritual, and Offering), the new UAC EMG Pistol, and the new playable demon, “The Harvester.”
They also introducing a new feature called PartyPlay.
Want to play the DLC maps, but don’t own Unto the Evil or the Season Pass? Party up with another player who has purchased the DLC, and you can play the new maps! If a DLC map comes up as part of the rotation, you and your party can play just as you have with the game’s original multiplayers maps. Conversely, if you have purchased the premium DLC pack, anyone in your party can play any of the maps from the DLC as long as they’re with you.
Double XP Weekend kicks off July 29! To celebrate the release of Update 2, we’re launching our first Double XP Weekend. Level up all weekend long while playing our two new multiplayer modes.
