Doom Eternal: The Ancient Gods – Part Two hits Switch next week, gameplay trailer revealed

Doom Eternal: The Ancient Gods - Part Two DLC expansion Nintendo Switch id Software QuakeCon Bethesda Panic Button

QuakeCon continues, and Bethesda and id Software have revealed with a gameplay trailer that Panic Button’s port of Doom Eternal: The Ancient Gods – Part Two will arrive on Nintendo Switch with a release date of August 26, 2021. This follows from the quality release of Part One back in June and the base release of Doom Eternal on Switch last December. Switch was the last platform to receive both the game and its expansion DLC, as The Ancient Gods – Part Two first released on other platforms this past March.

Your aim as the Doom Slayer in this final piece of DLC is to “siege Immora, the last bastion of the dark realm, challenge the Dark Lord in combat, and seal the demons within Hell for good.” You will be blasting enemies in various cosmic locations like the World Spear, and some of those enemies are new. The Armored Baron wants to smash you with his charged fist. The Stone Imp, Screecher, and Cursed Prowler all lurk around the corner as well. However, you can fight back with the Sentinel Hammer, Ice Bomb, and Flame Belch. It sounds like a healthy amount of content and a healthy amount of challenge alike.

There’s just a week to go now till Doom Eternal: The Ancient Gods – Part Two on Nintendo Switch. Meanwhile, Doom Slayers Collection arrives next month, and a Quake remaster launched today.
