in doom 2016 the slayer was trapped by Samuel Hayden, but the game just starts with you on a ship with no mention of the first game except UAC stuff around.

Do they ever shop how he escaped or did I miss something?

Obvious spoilers - no they never address this directly. My guess is thats what part of the story DLC is going to be.

Theres supposed to be story dlc? I got a chance to start the game last night and I too was thrown off by this. Always imagined the doom slayer busting out of hell to just be in hell on earth.

There's two planned dlc as part of the year one pass and they're calling them campaign dlc, so my guess is they'll be story related. But maybe not. Maybe they'll just be a different campaign mini story.

One of the few complaints I have about this game is that it feels like there's a missing first act, or a missing second game that explains what the hell you're doing and why for the first few hours of the game.

Honestly I was initially wondering if this games story was even related to the previous game and not just there are always demons and there's always a Doom Guy.

In Media Res is tricky to pull of in a game where the story is a primary focus, let alone here.

I remember a half dead Samuel Hayden from the trailer, I assumed that was the escape.

But seriously if the hide the start of the game behind DLC fuck them, just as bad as Asuras Wrath and the ending.

Waiting for this DLC to come (if there's one) or the new game storyline would not make any sense at all. Perhaps id Software set this Doom Eternal before Doom 2016 or older.

@spyder335: This is from an official Bethesda page.

”Access to two campaign add-ons to release within first year of DOOM Eternal’s launch date. Featuring new perspectives and new ways to play, these standalone stories explore the cataclysmic events that led to earth’s fall against the demons.”

@glots: The last part of that quote makes me pretty confident that either one or both of these add-ons will bridge the gap between 2016 and Eternal. Don't really know how I feel about that, but I guess that's one way to do the DLC.

@nikkicetus: without spoiling anything, this definitely takes place after Doom 2016 and the beginning makes even less sense the further in you get. This and that Bethesda statement makes me very confident the DLC will be bridge the gaps which...yeah, a little weird and gross?
