The revamped version of Doom was released earlier this year. Since then, players have been enjoying its gory and action-packed scenes. Now, developer id Software wants to add more content to the game. After the game's first DLC, Unto the Evil, players should expect a host of new contents and features, according to Doom director Marty Stratton.

In an interview with GameReactor, Stratton said there are multiple DLCs that will be coming to Doom. He also added that his team of developers is currently making Doom score attack mode, which allows players to quantify and compare their slaying skills.

Stratton explained the score attack mode would be a rewarding experience to players as they can recognize how good they are. Also, the leaderboard is one of the best ways to compete with friends. So it would be cool for players to experience the campaign again and again to have a high score, Doom's game director stressed.

Additionally, Stratton teased fans that new playlists will be introduced very soon. Many players have been requesting for new soundtracks in the game because it makes every scenes even more heart-pounding.

He further said players will see new maps which will be different regarding visual and style. We still don't have exact details about those upcoming maps, but for sure they are a welcome addition to the game.

On the other hand, there's still no update on Doom's single-player expansion, but developers confirmed there a will be a bunch of new features that will be coming.

As for the exact release date of score attack mode and new playlist, Stratton only said it would come "hopefully soon." Nonetheless, we expect it will arrive as a free update.

Interestingly, players will get a ton of new Snap Map content like new features, new functionality, and new modules. Stratton said there would be "better ways of surfacing the best of the best of Snap Map, so that players who want to play this infinite source of content can find exactly what they want."

A review from Polygon says Snap Map is one of best features of the new Doom. This mode allows players to create and share both multi- and single-player maps online. Aside from easy-to-use interface, Snap Map thrives on the creativeness of gaming community, which has strong support for the game.
