The Battlemode Update has arrived for DOOM Eternal, and we’ve got the July 8 update patch notes. This update is purely to make balance changes for Battlemode, and does not require a download on any platform. The balance changes on PC differ from the balance changes made for console, so feel free to skip to the relevant section for whichever platform you prefer.

This update is a minor one and comes just a week after the last major update, which upgraded DOOM Eternal to the next generation. The Battlemode Update also addresses some small errors that came with this previous Update 6.

These patch notes are taken directly from DOOM Eternal’s official website.

This update for DOOM Eternal features BATTLEMODE balance changes for ALL platforms and does not require any download.
