Just six months after its release, Xbox has announced that Doom Eternal is heading to Game Pass next month (October).

Xbox One members won’t have to wait long as the game is set to be added to the service on October 1. Its inclusion into Xbox Game Pass for PC is also coming at a yet to be revealed date later this year.

Following on from the 2016 reboot of Doom, the sequel builds upon the foundations of its predecessor to deliver fast-paced, gory combat. The hook this time around is providing more momentum, as arenas have a heavy emphasis on platforming to stay alive.

It will be included in the year one pass for free or can be purchased separately. It’s also been confirmed to be arriving as a standalone game, allowing players who don’t own Doom Eternal to experience the new story.
