Doom Eternal’s Invasion Mode has been halted due to pandemic issues, but a Horde Mode is coming.
The pandemic has caused plans in numerous studies and it is not the first time nor will it be the last that we write any news derived from this situation. Now, it has been the id Software studio, responsible for Doom Eternal, who have issued a statement to take a look at the near future of the game and confirm changes with respect to content that were announced. And sadly, It’s time to say goodbye to Invasion Mode.
Marty Stratton, executive producer of the successful FPS, has issued a letter on social networks announcing the cancellation of the free Invasion Mode that was planned as part of the game’s content updates. This addition, announced some time ago, would take some inspiration from the Dark Souls saga, allowing to enter the campaign of another person in the skin of a demon to avoid that it arrives at the end of the level.
Instead of Invasion Mode, a single player horde will arriveAlthough this change of plans has a compensation, and that is that Stratton himself confirms that, in his league, players will be able to a new Horde mode for a player, with which they have the objective of continuing to increase the “diversity and challenge” that users seek in the game. What’s more. They also point to an update to the Battlemode, the asymmetric PvP mode where two players act as demons, and the other is Slayer. There will be what’s new at QuakeCon scheduled for August.
With the good reception that the game has had, it is to be praised even more than at id Software keep adding content to the proposal, although in this case it is at the cost of an expected novelty. From the studio they have also recently spoken about their plans for the future, ensuring that their next project will be as wild or more than Doom Eternal.
