Get ready to show those legions of Hell who’s boss — Update 6.66 is now live in Doom Eternal! This update not only includes a whole new Horde Mode for players to sink their teeth into, but also two Master Levels and new arena, playable demon and streak-based Ranking System for Battlemode and more!
Horde Mode is Here
In Doom Eternal’s Horde Mode, Slayers enter a fast-paced, arcade-style challenge to dispatch demons with speed, precision and just a touch of style. Each time you enter Horde Mode, you’ll start off with the Combat Shotgun and all perks, runes and mods available and upgraded.
As you make your way through three levels packed with demons, you’ll build up your arsenal and rack up points. To really maximize your score, watch out for bounty demons that drop a huge point payout when taken out in record time! Keep returning to face the horde and vie for higher and higher scores, unlocking more than seven new skins for Doom Eternal and proving who is the best Slayer around in Horde Mode’s leaderboards!
Duke It Out Online in Battlemode 2.0
Take your skills to the arena against real players in Doom Eternal’s 2v1 Battlemode 2.0 experience, now enhanced with a streak-based Ranking System that accounts your win streaks to find you worthy opponents to duel.
Battlemode 2.0 also features seasonal leaderboard, granting players rewards based on their progress at the end of each season. That’s not all – Update 6.66 also brings Stronghold, a new arena to battle it out in and the ferocious Dread Knight as an all-new playable demon!
With over a year of optimizations, balancing and latency improvements since launch, Update 6.66 marks an excellent time for Battlemode veterans and newcomers alike to jump into Doom Eternal with friends and check out its edge-of-your-seat multiplayer experience!
Face a Remixed Challenge in Two New Master Levels
As if Horde Mode and Battlemode 2.0 wasn’t enough demon-slaying action, Update 6.66 also features two new Master Levels! These single-player challenges remix levels from Doom Eternal’s award-winning campaign to bring players a new combat experience that’ll test your slaying skills!
Players can dive into the new Mars Core and The World Spear Master Levels today, rounding out a massive content drop for Doom Eternal in Update 6.66. (Note: The World Spear Master Level requires campaign expansion DLC The Ancient Gods – Part Two to play.)
