Horde Mode

The long-awaited Horde Mode is now out and ready. Compared to your standard DOOM: Eternal experience, this new game mode offers a fun arcade-style experience that still remains as hellishly challenging as before.

Here’s what you need to know about Horde Mode:

Three Action-Packed Levels

The goal is to defeat multiple relentless waves of demons across three challenging levels. Beating each wave helps you acquire more weapons to help you fight back more incoming demons.

Each level has 5 rounds, which include 3 Arena sections to test your combat skills against waves of demons. There are also Blitz rounds that have you facing Super Heavy demons while using the Onslaught power-up. You also have Traversal challenges, which are platforming puzzles that require you to collect coins before time runs out.

Armed to the Teeth

The Doomslayer starts off each Horde Mode level with a Mastered Combat Shotgun, along with all perks, runes, and upgrades. You also have 3 extra lives, your trusty Chainsaw, Dash, and all equipment.

Complete each Arena Round to earn more Mastered Guns. You can also earn extra lives and customization items.

A Horde’s Worth of Rewards

Completing Horde Mode levels and challenges reward you with a plethora of skins, emblems, backgrounds, and much more. This includes the DOOM II Slayer skin, and the Biker skin.

Rise up the Leaderboards

Compete against yourself and rival Slayers for the high score in seasonal leaderboards. Top 10 players receive a Slayer Medal, and each difficulty has a leaderboard.

BATTLEMODE 2.0

Experience a refined BATTLEMODE, the 2v1 competitive multiplayer mode that pits two player-controlled demons against one fully-kitted DOOM Slayer. Here are the new features that you can experience after the update:

  • Earn Hot Streaks after winning consecutive rounds. Keep the momentum going to earn new Slayer and Demon cards!
  • Global Leaderboards allow you to keep track of your performance and help you get ahead of the competition.
  • Completing Battlemode challenges and matches increases your rank, along with giving you more rewards.
  • Play as the new Dread Knight and use its abilities to take down the mighty Slayer.

Two New Master Levels

DOOM Eternal has released a series of Master Levels for the base game, along with both Ancient Gods DLCs. This time, two new levels are receiving a brutally challenging version. These are the Mars Core, and the *World Spear, two popular levels that will give you a new challenge to conquer.

Update 6.66 is available today for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.

*The World Spear Master Level requires ownership of The Ancient Gods – Part Two.
