Doom Eternal, the critically-acclaimed sequel to the Doom reboot developed by id Software will be available on Xbox Game Pass for Console on October 1. The fast-paced shooter will also make its way to Xbox Game Pass for PC later in 2020, and Microsoft didn’t provide a more precise ETA.

The announcements comes just a couple of days after Microsoft announced the acquisition of ZeniMax Media, the owner of publisher Bethesda Softworks and Doom developer id Software. Xbox Game Pass has already welcomed several Bethesda games including Doom, Fallout 76, or Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, and it’s great to see Doom Eternal coming to Xbox Game Pass just a couple of months after its March 20 release.

Doom Eternal will receive its first DLC, The Ancient Gods – Part One on October 20, though it won’t be included with Xbox Game Pass. “We will be adding Bethesda’s iconic franchises to Xbox Game Pass for console and PC,” Xbox head Phil Spencer said earlier this week, and we’re looking forward to see The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and other Bethesda classics come to the service in the coming months.
