Hot on the heels of yesterday’s clever teaser, Microsoft has confirmed that DOOM Eternal is coming to its popular game subscription service, Xbox Game Pass. Console users will be able to rip and tear as early as October 1, but unfortunately, PC gamers won’t be getting the game until later this year.
“Doom Eternal has been called one of the best first-person shooters ever,” Bethesda noted. “If you haven’t already experienced its unique brand of fast-paced, push-forward, first-person combat, now’s the time to blast your way into id Software’s critically acclaimed game coming to Xbox Game Pass on October 1 and Xbox Game Pass for PC later in 2020.”
We have no idea why PC subscribers are being shafted, but we’re guessing that the game will be available on all tiers before the holidays. It’s also unclear whether DOOM Eternal’s first campaign extension, The Ancient Gods – Part One, will eventually be included in the Game Pass versions.
“The story doesn’t end when Doom Eternal’s credit roll. Continue seeking your vengeance in Doom Eternal: The Ancient Gods – Part One, launching on October 20 on the Xbox Store,” Bethesda wrote. “The legions of Hell have razed the heavens, threatening to expand across dimensions. Battle your way to the heart of the threat and decide the fate of the cosmos.”
