Doom Eternal released its first update today and with it some quality of life fixes and some new content drops. Update 1's new features include the addition of Empowered Demons, a new Precious Metal Event, as well as a series of quality of life and anti-cheat improvements. Although id Software announced plans for story DLC, that’s still a ways away. Instead, Update 1 focuses mostly on events and challenges. There are now Empowered Demons, which are demons that are buffed after successfully killing Slayers. Killing these empowered demons provides more resources and bonus event XP. [widget path="global/article/imagegallery" parameters="albumSlug=10-best-id-software-weapons&captions=true"] Another new addition with the update is the start of the Precious Metals Event which offers shiny new cosmetics that can be collected towards the MC Pain Master Collection. Event progress XP can be earned simply by playing Battlemode, Campaign, or completing weekly challenges. Battlemode also received some quality of life updates including a new death report that shows players what killed them, Prestige stars for dedicated players, fixes for latency and lag, better tutorials, and Echelon leveling for players who hit max level. Here are some other patch notes for the new update. New Features for PC
  • Added Denuvo Anti-Cheat software required for playing BATTLEMODE on PC
  • Denuvo Anti-Cheat uses a kernel-mode driver
  • Use of the kernel-mode driver starts when the game launches and stops when the game stops for any reason
  • Denuvo Anti-Cheat does not take screenshots, scan your file system, or stream shellcode from the internet
  • Denuvo Anti-Cheat can be uninstalled at any time through the "Add or remove programs" dialog
  • For more information, please see https://help.bethesda.net/ or refer to Denuvo's launch day blog here
