Doom Eternal Update 6.1 released, full patch notes revealed

id Software has released a new patch for Doom Eternal. According to the release notes, Update 6.1 fixes a number of bugs and crashes on PC. Moreover, it comes with some BATTLEMODE fixes.

This is a pretty small update, so don’t expect any performance improvements over the previous one.

Furthermore, and as id Software noted, PCs with mobile GPUs that support ray tracing can now enable it.

As always, Steam and the Bethesda launcher will download this patch the next time you launch their clients. Below you can also find its complete changelog.
