Game Director Hugo Martin and Executive Producer Marty Stratton have confirmed that DOOM Eternal will continue to receive updates throughout the year. They could include the addition of raytracing, new Master Levels, next-generation console improvements, and Invasion Mode.

Developer id Software had made it quite clear that The Ancient Gods Part 2 would be the last single-player DLC for DOOM Eternal. However, the game is slated to get additional updates later this year. The information comes from id Software's Hugo Martin and Marty Stratton on Twitter.

DOOM Eternal: The Ancient Gods Part 2 ended the Doomslayer's official storyline that was set in motion in Doom 2016. We could finally get Invasion Mode, something that was heavily advertised at the game's BlizzCon teaser. It was subsequently cut out of the main game along with raytracing support. id Software said that it wanted to focus on the base game and single-player DLC before anything else.

DOOM Eternal's id Tech engine is one of the few engines that can hit the magical 1,000 fps ceiling, so it'll be interesting to see just how much of a performance hit it takes with raytracing. We can also expect additional multiplayer modes and some new master levels for the DLC maps. Some enhancements for next-generation consoles are likely too.
