DOOM Confirmed For Xbox Game Pass In a Hidden Tease
The official Xbox Game Pass Twitter account had hidden the name of the next major game, DOOM, in a tweet that was cracked by a fan rather quickly.
Microsoft has acquired Bethesda Softworks’ owner Zenimax Media as confirmed yesterday. This acquisition was eventually going to lead to the games that are published by Bethesda to make their way to Xbox Game Pass and now this was confirmed through a teaser that was shared by the official Xbox Game Pass Twitter account.
It started to tease a new game coming to the Game Pass subscription. The tweet was an image that was an email sent to a supposedly fictional person in charge of the service. The letters of the tweets spelled “Look Below” and one fan was clever enough to figure out it meant adjusting the colors of the image.
As a result, once the colors were adjusted which mainly boiled down to tweaking the brightness and control, the message that was hidden at the end of the email simply said: “The Slayer is Coming”.
The Slayer here refers to the DOOM guy and since the original DOOM was already on the Game Pass subscription service, it is easy to assume that either the first DOOM is coming to Game Pass, or both DOOM and DOOM Eternal are coming to Game Pass in some capacity. It is also possible that every DOOM game that has been released so far including the original retro collection and DOOM 64, will make the jump to Game Pass in the next update.
