DOOM Eternal, id Software's sequel the solid DOOM (2016) re-imagining is now only awesome it's one of the most critically acclaimed first-person shooters in years. And on October 1 it's headed to Xbox Game Pass for console - with the PC version arriving later this year. As per Microsoft's Megaton acquisition of Bethesda, this was inevitable.
And as a newly minted first-party Xbox title, DOOM Eternal will probably remain on Xbox Game Pass, well, eternally.
A snippet from our review.
DOOM Eternal’s world is one that blends elements of traditional sci-fi with the sort of fantasy that resides, well, in the world of fantasy. Or, a cool-as-hell heavy metal album cover to suit the game’s heavy metal opera of fast drumming and chunky riffs, replete with choiristic guttural gregorian chants backing it all. There’s a vision and completeness on display that presents id Software as much more than tech pioneers. Eternal is as much a statement of renewed intent as it is a brilliant slice of first-person action from id. A studio that has taken the simplicity and peerless feel of DOOM 2016, Quake III Arena, and other past glories and expanded that into an experience that also captures the wonder of exploring new alien worlds and locations.
With DOOM Eternal set to get a next-gen update to take advantage of, well, next-gen hardware - this is definite boon for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, both of which aree set to launch on November 10. Now with added Slayer action as a part of the insane value for money that is Xbox Game Pass.
