During this year’s QuakeCon: Year of DOOM keynote address, id Software Executive Producer Marty Stratton and Creative Director Hugo Martin revealed more information about DOOM Eternal’s new PvP experience, BATTLEMODE. Designed from the ground up by id Software alongside DOOM Eternal’s single-player campaign, BATTLEMODE is an all-new multiplayer mode where a team of two player-controlled demons use their cunning (and demon reinforcements) to take down their opponent – a player in the boots of a fully armed DOOM Slayer.
New details were announced around BATTLEMODE’s arenas and the various playable demons and their special abilities.
