Microsoft today revealed the games that are coming to Xbox Game Pass in the first half of October, and there are some blockbusters in there.

Here are the new games you can expect in October.

Doom Eternal (Android and Console) – October 1

“One of the best shooters of 2020 is coming to Xbox Game Pass. 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 Hollow (PC) [email protected] – October 1

Drake Hollow is a cooperative action village-building game set in The Hollow – a blighted mirror of our world – in which players build and defend villages of Drakes, the lovable, local vegetable folk. 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 (Console) – October 8

“Double Fine Productions cult classic action-comedy Brütal Legend is coming to 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. Brütal Legend mixes hack and slash mayhem with huge strategy battles as Eddie and a band of stalwart heroes fight to free the world from a demonic overlord. Featuring a vibrant voice cast and cameo appearances from some of the world’s biggest rock musicians, Brütal Legend is a celebration of all things heavy and metal.”

Forza Motorsport 7 (Android, Console and PC) – October 8

Ikenfell (Console and PC) [email protected] – October 8

A turn based-tactical RPG about a group of troublesome magic students. Use time-based combat mechanics to power your spells and block attacks, explore the twisted halls of a vast magic school, fight challenging monsters and bosses, find tons of hidden treasure, and uncover dark secrets never meant to be found.”

These news games are in addition to various DLCs and, of course, the coming of EA Play to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate in November.

    Doom Eternal is a huge addition to Game Pass. I enjoyed it much more than Doom 2016.

  2. Daninbusiness

    Forza 7 is a Microsoft first-party title, isn't it? I wonder why it took so long to come to game pass.

  3. lezmaka

    How long do games usually stay on game pass?

  4. crunchyfrog

    Initially not a fan of a gaming subscriptions but pulled the trigger on Game Pass mainly because many of the games it has are on my Steam wishlist and just being able to get MS Flight Sim costs less in a year on Game Pass than buying it outright. I'm beginning to see the light.

    Definitely cool to see forza & doom being added. Don’t games have a limited availability period though? How long is this and how does it work etc?

    I want to perpetually ‘own’ these so I’m not in a rush to play & finish.. Forza in particular I already own on disc but I was thinking of purchasing in digital so I don’t need to muck around with discs and can take advantage of the fast loading once the next gen consoles come out.

      In reply to JE: it varies by title as each deal is of a different length and some deals get renewed without us ever knowing, but so far first party titles have been available perpetually so I'd go so far as saying when it comes to first party titles Game Pass is as good as ownership.
