Doom Eternal, the latest entry in developer id Software’s legendary FPS series, has just received its first free content update on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, introducing the likes of Empowered Demon foes, a new Echelon rank system, and more.
Empowered Demons are particularly deadly opponents with a unique trick; they’re designed to hop from one player’s solo campaign to another each time the demon successfully eliminates the campaign’s host. It’s a process that will continue, with the creature growing more and more powerful, until a player manages to bring its reign to an end.
Players that successfully defeat an Empowered Demon will be rewarded with additional ammo, health, and bonus XP. However, those that don’t wish to take advantage of Doom Eternal’s new feature can toggle it on and off as they choose.
