Doom Eternal Recruits Two New Composers for The Ancient Gods DLC

In the wake of Mick Gordon and id Software's split.

Recently, Bethesda revealed the first DLC pack for Doom Eternal. Called The Ancient Gods, the DLC pack set to release next month in October will have two new composers to score the DLC.

You can see the trailer for the new Ancient Gods DLC for Doom Eternal just below (in which it appears we'll be fighting two Marauders at once). Yesterday, composer Andrew Hulshult announced that himself and id Software engineer David Levy would be collaborating on the soundtrack for the Ancient Gods DLC. Hushult's previous credits include Dusk and Quake Champions, among others.

This all comes in the wake of a pretty messy divorce between Doom Eternal composer Mick Gordon and id Software. In late April, around a month after Doom Eternal released, Gordon revealed that he didn't actually get to mix the full soundtrack release, causing many Doom fans to accuse id of mishandling the music for the game.

Shortly after in early May, Doom Eternal co-director Marty Stratton penned a letter praising Gordon's work on the game, recounting the events that led up to Gordon's departure from the game's soundtrack mixing. According to Stratton, Gordon asked for extensions on the game's soundtrack mixing, causing Stratton to go to id Software's lead audio designer Chad Mossholder to mix the tracks instead, and the final result was a combination of mixed from both Gordon and Mossholder.

So, we now have our new composing team for Doom Eternal's Ancient Gods DLC. Releasing next month on October 20, the first DLC pack is part of two planned expansions for the game, the second of which could feature some pretty insane enemies.
