Doom Eternal‘s latest DLC, The Ancient Gods — Part Two, is coming out on Thursday, March 18. Developer id Software shared a new trailer for the expansion, which shows off a particularly devastating weapon.
The Ancient Gods — Part Two is the first-person shooter’s second expansion naturally following The Ancient Gods – Part One. That expansion added new story content and enemies to the game. The new piece installment continues that story and will be the game’s final piece of DLC.

The star attraction in the new trailer is a weapon is the new Hellbreaker hammer. We see the Doom Slayer wielding the massive weapon and slamming it down on an enemy. Promo art for the expansion heavily features the weapon, so it seems it’ll play a large role in the story.
The clip shows the Doom Slayer clashing with the expansion’s main villain, who’s encased in a gigantic, red mech suit that looks like it’s straight out of Warhammer 40,000. The trailer ends with him brandishing a glowing energy sword.
The rest of the trailer should be familiar to Doom Eternal players. It features the same mix of shooting and platforming that’s present in the base game. There’s also a brief glimpse at an underwater section with the Doom Slayer swimming.
In an interview with Polygon, game director Hugo Martin notes that the DLC is the end of the story the team introduced in 2016’s Doom reboot. While there isn’t more content planned for the game, Martin says that “there are more stories to tell with the Doom Slayer, for sure.”
