DOOM Eternal The Ancient Gods Part 2

The Microsoft Store has let slip in advance the launch date and some details of The Ancient Gods Part 2, according to DOOM Eternal DLC, whose official presentation is set for tomorrow March 15th.

A first leak yes occurred yesterday, when Bethesda's YouTube channel released the trailer for The Ancient Gods Part 2 by mistake. The company was quick to remove it, but many players have already had the opportunity to check out the new downloadable content. In the past few hours, another flaw has appeared on the Microsoft Store, which sent the DLC card online ahead of time, even revealing the release date, set for March 18 - three days after the official reveal and two days before the anniversary. of the game's release: apparently, id Software and Bethesda will narrowly deliver on their promise made last year, when they secured the release of two additional content within the first year of DOOM Eternal's life.

The Microsoft Store card has also revealed some details of the plot and the settings, which we advise you not to read if you want to avoid previews. Apparently The Ancient Gods Part 2 will represent the conclusion of the saga and the war against Hell of the DOOM Slayer. The stainless hero will travel to Immora, the last bastion of the dark realm, where he will be called to face the Dark Lord and finally confine the demons to Hell once and for all. The settings will include an ancient Sentinel settlement, the "cosmic wonders" of a place called World Spear, and a devastated city of Earth that hides a mysterious passage. There will also be new enemies, such as the Armored Baron, the Stone Imp, the Cursed Predator and the Screeches, a sort of zombie.

We'll know more tomorrow March 15, when the official presentation of The Ancient Gods Part 2, the second and final DLC of the DOOM Eternal Year 1 Pass, will be made, available for purchase for € 29.99.

DOOM Eternal: The Ancient Gods Part 2 DLC Release Date Potentially Leaked

Bethesda is slated to reveal new information on DOOM Eternal's upcoming expansion The Ancient Gods Part 2 at the start of next week, but ahead of that time, it looks as though we could have an idea of when the DLC could be releasing. Although the source of this information might not be definitive, if what has leaked out proves to be true, we could be playing this new DOOM campaign sooner than expected.

According to a user by the name of @ALumia_Italia on Twitter, DOOM Eternal: The Ancient Gods Part 2 will be releasing in a little under a week and will arrive on Thursday, March 18. The user in question didn't provide a source for this info, however, which would normally be pretty suspicious. That being said, they might seem to have some good information with this claim for a rather unusual reason.

When sharing this info on Twitter, @ALumia_Italia quote tweeted a previous message that they had sent out featuring images from DOOM Eternal: The Ancient Gods Part 2 that leaked last weekend. Four screenshots in total were attached to the previous tweet and three of these pictures had been posted to Bethesda's website as part of the aforementioned leak. However, one of these images was one that hasn't been spotted anywhere else (at least that we can see) on the internet other than via this tweet. As such, it stands to reason that this user may have received some valuable information and details on The Ancient Gods Part 2 ahead of time, including the release date.

Even outside of this tweet, though, there's a pretty good chance that The Ancient Gods Part 2 releases for DOOM Eternal next week based on previous commitments made by Bethesda and id Software. In the past, Bethesda stated that both post-launch expansions for DOOM Eternal would arrive within one year of the game's original launch. Considering the fact that DOOM Eternal released last year on March 20, 2020, if Bethesda still intends on keeping this promise, The Ancient Gods Part 2 would have to arrive within the next eight days.

In all likelihood, we should hear a release date for DOOM Eternal: The Ancient Gods Part 2 next week when the DLC's teaser trailer releases on Monday. Once that new video goes live, we'll be sure to share it with you here on
