DOOM Eternal has received a surprising new update from the team at id Software. The update, which is available to download right now across all platforms, doesn't bring a ton of changes to the popular first-person, but it does come with a handful of tweaks for both the campaign and multiplayer components.

For the most part, this new DOOM Eternal update primarily fixes a number of lingering bugs that have been present in the game. Some of these bugs haven't been around for long, however, and seem to have only come about when the title's next-gen upgrade rolled out. In addition, many of these alterations are specific to lone platforms.

As a whole, DOOM Eternal is available to play right now and can be picked up on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC. Conversely, the game is also available to download for free if you're subscribed to Xbox Game Pass.
