Doom Eternal Adds More Paid Cosmetic DLC After Assurances It Wouldn't

Despite assurances that Doom Eternal would not add paid cosmetic DLC, two more packs have now been made available for purchase. As reported by VGC, these two packs – the DOOMicorn Master Collection Cosmetic Pack and the Series One Cosmetic Pack – are now available for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation and cost $4.99 and $8.99, respectively. Prior to Doom Eternal’s launch, creative director Hugo Martin responded to a Facebook comment confirming the game would have “no store.” [ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/01/28/doom-eternal-will-not-have-microtransactions”] “No store,” Martin wrote. “Nothing u can unlock in eternal with XP has anything to do with player abilities or content that would impact your game in anyway. The only thing u can unlock with XP is COSMETICS. These cosmetics have no impact on how u play, they just look cool. “Eternal is a $60 game, not a free to play game or a mobile game – we are giving u a complete experience with no store just like you’d expect. Unlocking skins with XP is a part of the experience if you care about that stuff or u can completely ignore it and it will have no impact on your experience AT ALL and it’s all free.” These two packs also aren’t the first pieces of cosmetic DLC to be made available, as the Rip ‘N Tear pack was released a couple months after launch. However, these were items that were originally a pre-order incentive, so there wasn’t too much negativity surrounding it. [ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2021/03/23/doom-eternal-the-ancient-gods-part-2-review”] Like the Rip ‘N Tear pack, many of the items in the newly released packs were given away to players for free at some point in Doom Eternal’s history, but now they are available as a full bundle. Doom has had paid DLC in the form of expansions known as The Ancient Gods Part 1 & 2, and those were generally well-received despite their difficulty. Doom Eternal is available on Xbox Game Pass, and Microsoft has since acquired its parent company ZeniMax Media, so it’s very possible that all of these shifts have led to this decision.
