DOOM Eternal

As revealed by Xbox, DOOM Eternal joins the Game Pass library on October 1. Sadly this one will be skipping PC, and instead will be available on Android and console. The game’s official description reads: “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 Hallow

Cooperative action village-building game Drake Hallow will be available for PC players from October 1. The game’s description reveals: “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

From October 8, Xbox console players will be able to play Brütal Legend via 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,” says the description.

Forza Motorsport 7 

Again coming on October 8, Forza Motorsport 7 is described as being “the most comprehensive, beautiful, and authentic racing game ever made.” Play it for free via Game Pass on PC, console and Android devices.
