id Software has announced that is currently working on a single-player horde mode for Doom Eternal. As Executive Producer Marty Stratton said, the team will re-focus and will be no longer working on the game’s promised Invasion Mode. Instead, it will be now focusing on the single-player horde mode and on BATTLEMODE.
Stratton believes that this horde mode will offer players more of the diversity and challenge they are looking for in the game. BATTLEMODE will also receive a more competitive, rank-based structure. It will also get a number of gameplay and balance updates, as well as another new map.
id Software will share more details about the next major patch for Doom Eternal at QuakeCon 2021 in August.
A few days ago, id Software released Update 6 for Doom Eternal. This patch added the promised Ray Tracing Reflections and support for NVIDIA’s DLSS tech. You can find some 4K Ray Tracing screenshots here. You can also find our latest RT & DLSS benchmarks here.
