Now Playing: DOOM ETERNAL Horde Mode Teaser Trailer

Similar to other games, it appears Doom Eternal's horde mode will seemingly challenge players to survive as long as they can as they fight against waves of increasingly difficult enemies. Doom Eternal is known for its excellent shooting mechanics and gameplay systems, and for how good the game simply feels, so the horde mode seemingly has a lot of potential, at least on paper.

In July, developer id Software canceled Doom Eternal's Invasion mode and announced that it would be replaced with a horde-style mode. Citing unforeseen consequences from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the studio shifting to a remote work environment, Id Software instead focused its efforts on the new horde mode and a rework of the multiplayer Battlemode.
