Doom Eternal doesn’t offer a run-of-the-mill death match for its multiplayer, instead providing an asymmetrical 2v1 spin dubbed Battlemode. If you’re like most players, you’re probably looking to dive into it as soon as possible, which is why we’re here to walk you through how to play the Battlemode multiplayer in Doom Eternal.
How to Play Battle Mode Multiplayer in Doom Eternal
Starting Doom Eternal’s Battlemode is a fairly straight-forward process.
From the main menu, scroll down to the Battlemode option and select it with the X Button on PlayStation 4 or the A Button on the Xbox One. The game will then recommend you play through the campaign to a certain point before proceeding into the mode.
You can choose to either back out and complete the story up to the point it recommends, or – if you’d rather get straight to the multiplayer – proceed forward anyway.
This will take you to the mode’s main menu, where you’ll be walked through a tutorial for how to play as the mode’s Demons. Completing it will take a few minutes, and once you’re done, you can freely dive into Battlemode so long as the game has fully downloaded every available update and you have an active PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live account.
Time needed: 7 minutes.
So, to recap how to play Doom Eternal’s Battlemode multiplayer mode:
- Scroll down to the Battlemode option in the main menu and select it
This is done by pressing the X Button on PlayStation 4 or the A Button on Xbox One. It’ll then be recommended that you reach a certain point in the campaign before starting Battlemode, which you can adhere to or ignore.
- Finish the Battlemode tutorial
This will walk you through the basics of playing as the mode’s Demons side, and will take a few minutes to complete. Once you do, you can play the mode so long as you have an online play subscription and the game has all the necessary patches or updates.
