Get ready to crush demon skulls and race through a post-apocalyptic landscape because Microsoft has added Doom and Rage to the Xbox Game Pass library.
As revealed on Xbox Wire, both Bethesda titles were added in celebration of this year’s QuakeCon. As featured during the recent event, the pair of classic shooters will be getting sequels soon—Rage 2 and Doom Eternal—meaning Xbox Game Pass subscribers will have a great way to catch up on or revisit the previous entries.
In Doom, id Software’s 2016 reimagining of the first-person shooter series, players take control of the Doom Slayer, a marine with a particular hatred for Hellspawn. Using dozens of powerful weapons, the Doom Slayer must navigate a space station on Mars overrun by hellish creatures. While the main campaign is a single-player experience, Doom on Game Pass will also come with access to competitive online multiplayer matches.
As for Rage, the intensity and action featured in Doom are still at full force—but in a post-apocalyptic open-world package. Taking control of a traveler that awakens in a world wiped out by a cataclysmic event, the player will use vehicles, melee weapons, and plenty of guns to survive their journey.
Once players feel familiar with both games, they can check out the new gameplay from the sequels that was debuted. id Software gave a closer look at both games’ previously mentioned sequels during QuakeCon. In Doom Eternal, everyone’s favorite slayer will receive a makeover, an arsenal of new weapons, and some impressive melee skills. For instance, the Ballista will fire flaming bolts that rip through enemies and a new dash ability to avoid attacks or rush enemies. More of Rage 2‘s high-octane shooting and racing was also shown off in its upcoming post-post-apocalyptic world.
Doom and Rage are only two of the over 100 games players have access to with Game Pass. Joining the service will grant access to a multitude of original Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One titles in a Netflix-style package. Players also get the added benefit of getting to play first-party games on the day of their release, which will include the upcoming releases of Crackdown 3 and Forza Horizon 4.
