One of the most outstanding news of the week and of the last years in general we had it last Monday, when Microsoft announced that it had bought ZeniMax Media, the company that had under its umbrella companies as important as Bethesda o id Software, two very iconic developers with a great legacy in the industry.
Now, Microsoft did not want to waste time and next week we will see the first fruits of this acquisition, well Doom Eternal will be added to the Xbox Game Pass catalog on October 1, at least in its version of Xbox One, since to the one of PC it will not arrive until later.
This is, without a doubt, great news for owners of the console, because we are talking about one of the most acclaimed first-person action games of recent times for its vertiginous and spectacular combats, and the best of all is that this being just the first of many ZeniMax games to become a permanent part of the Xbox Game Pass catalog.
At analysis that we dedicated to him in Vandal when they are released on March 20 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, we gave him a score of 9.5 and we said that “Doom Eternal is, in 2020, what Doom 2 it was for the shooters in 1994, a benchmark within the genre that marks the path of how a game of this type should be made that aims to focus on action and playability, without this meaning that the story, the technical finish or the music that accompanies the game. What’s new from id Software and Bethesda is an outstanding work that will enchant all of you who have ever enjoyed an action game and that, of course, will offer fans of Doom everything they wanted and much more since, I assure you, it is better than you think, in fact, Doom Eternal It’s almost a dream come true for those of us who grew up with shooters 90’s “.
