DOOM Eternal Paid DLC Skins Added Even When Devs Promised Game Won’t Feature Microtransactions

Doom Eternal Paid DLC Skins

It appears that the folks at Bethesda and id Software have doubled back on what they previously said about microtransactions in DOOM Eternal, as reports have now confirmed  that there are some DOOM Eternal paid DLC skins via cosmetic packs  have been released — despite assurances there wouldn’t be any.

Released yesterday on Steam, Xbox, and PlayStation, there are now two packs of skin DLC that players can purchase — namely the DOOMicorn Master Collection Cosmetic Pack and the Series One Cosmetic Pack — which you can check details below.

Here’s the DOOMicorn Master Collection details:

Missed out on the Twitch exclusive DOOMicorn Master Collection? Get it now and become Hell’s worst night-mare with new Slayer skins, podiums, animations and a new player icon and nameplate. Gallop into DOOM Eternal’s epic campaign and BATTLEMODE to put your enemies out to pasture in style or strike a pose in the campaign’s Photo Mode.

You get:

  • ‘DOOMicorn’ Slayer Skin

  • ‘Purple Pony’ Skin Variant

  • ‘Night-mare’ Skin Variant

  • ‘Magic Meadow’ Base Podium

  • ‘For Those Who Dare to Dream!’ Maxed-Out Podium

  • ‘Clip Clop’ Stance Animation

  • ‘Haymaker’ Intro Animation

  • ‘Horsing Around’ Victory Animation

  • ‘Love Conquers All’ Icon

  • ‘Super Sparkle Slayer’ Nameplate

And here’s Series One’s cosmetic pack contents:

“Missed out on DOOM Eternal’s Series One event? Grab over 12 cosmetic items, including all the character and weapon skins, custom animations, and player icons and nameplates. Fight the hordes of Hell in style in DOOM Eternal’s epic campaign and BATTLEMODE, or show off your player and weapons skins in the campaign’s Photo Mode.

You get:

  • “Ember” SE Slayer Set*

  • “Inferno Lord” SE Marauder Set*

  • “Red Rage” Mancubus Skin

  • “Rune-Scarred” Weapon Skin

  • “Caution” Weapon Skin

  • “Searing” Icon

  • “Rune-Scarred” Icon

  • “Caution” Icon

  • “Red Rage” Icon

  • “Graven Image” Icon

  • “Soul Taker” Nameplate

  • “He’s on Fire” Nameplate

To touch a bit more on these, all these DLC were at some point free for users to either earn through leveling up in the Series 1 event, or through a Twitch drop (DOOMicorn). Even still, despite them now being rotated out of the unlockable pool this does beg to question if Bethesda plans on releasing more skins that are no longer obtainable in the future. The chance to earn them may have already passed, but seeing that they did say the game wouldn’t feature microtransactions, it’s a bit surprising (or not) to see them go back on that. Only time will tell if this becomes a common trend with Doom Eternal.

On related Bethesda news, Xbox Game Studios discussed their commitment towards PC game development — which includes Bethesda titles following the company’s acquisition by Microsoft.
