titles are coming. With EA Play
becoming a part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Game Pass for PC. On October 1 though, there's DOOM Eternal
As per our full review
id Software's latest is a genre defining release and one of the best games of 2020. It kicks off October for Xbox Game Pass on Console (the PC release will arrive once Bethesda titles are added into the Windows 10 ecosystem) that surprisingly also includes Forza Motorsport 7. Which we would have assumed was already a part of Xbox Game Pass.
Here's what's coming.
Doom Eternal (Android & Console) – October 1
One of the best shooters of 2020 is coming to Xbox Game Pass. Hell’s armies have invaded Earth and now you must become the Slayer in an epic single-player campaign to conquer demons across dimensions and stop the final destruction of humanity. Experience the ultimate combination of speed and power in Doom Eternal – the next leap in push-forward, first-person combat. The only thing they fear… is you.
Drake Hollow (PC) ID@Xbox – October 1
Drake Hollow is a cooperative action village-building game set in The Hollow – a blighted mirror of our world – in which players build and defend villages of Drakes, the lovable, local vegetable folk. Whether solo or with friends, players follow the guidance of a mysterious crow to explore a dynamically generated world of islands trapped in poisonous aether and help the Drakes restore their camp.
Brütal Legend (Console) – October 8
Double Fine Productions cult classic action-comedy Brütal Legend is coming to Xbox Game Pass. Follow the unlikely adventure of Eddie Riggs, a humble roadie (voiced by Jack Black!) drawn into an alternate world of gnarly demons, fire-breathing beasts, and heavy metal music. Brütal Legend mixes hack and slash mayhem with huge strategy battles as Eddie and a band of stalwart heroes fight to free the world from a demonic overlord. Featuring a vibrant voice cast and cameo appearances from some of the world’s biggest rock musicians, Brütal Legend is a celebration of all things heavy and metal.
Forza Motorsport 7 (Android, Console & PC) – October 8
Experience the thrill of motorsport at the limit with the most comprehensive, beautiful, and authentic racing game ever made. Forza Motorsport 7 is where racers, drifters, drag racers, tuners, and creators come together in a community devoted to everything automotive. Drive the cars of your dreams, with more than 700 amazing vehicles to choose from including the largest collection of Ferraris, Porsches, and Lamborghinis ever. Challenge yourself across 30 famous destinations and 200 ribbons, where race conditions change every time you return to the track. Experience it all in gorgeous 60fps and native 4K resolution in HDR!
Ikenfell (Console & PC) ID@Xbox – October 8
A turn based-tactical RPG about a group of troublesome magic students. Use time-based combat mechanics to power your spells and block attacks, explore the twisted halls of a vast magic school, fight challenging monsters and bosses, find tons of hidden treasure, and uncover dark secrets never meant to be found.
Interestingly DOOM Eternal lists Android as a device meaning it will be playable via Game Streaming or Project xCloud - a feature set to hit our shores early next year. As in past months we should expect to see more Xbox Game Pass arrivals for October 2020. And titles leaving the service, which are as follows - leaving Xbox Game Pass on October 15.
Felix the Reaper (Console & PC)
Metro 2033 Redux (Console & PC)
Minit (Console & PC)
Saints Row IV Re-Elected (PC)
