Game company Bethesda Softworks has recently announced that popular video game Doom Eternal is getting its latest free update.

Update 6 will offer the free next-gen upgrade today, which will make the game more optimized for Xbox Series X/S. It improves visuals, increases performance support for ray tracing, and adds 4K resolution at 60 fps.

With update 6, players will gain access to a new master Level to test their skills, a new Battlemode arena, and more.

Update 6 offers up to three visual modes on both next-gen Xbox consoles. Check out the breakdown below via Xbox Wire:

Xbox Series X
