2016's Doom and the original Rage are now both available via Xbox Games Pass - their arrivals timed to coincide with this weekend's QuakeCon 2018 festivities.

It's especially well-timed as publisher Bethesda and developer id Software have spent the weekend chatting about both games' upcoming sequels: Doom Eternal and Rage 2.

This weekend we learned Rage 2 won't have multiplayer but will have "a social component", then saw our first look at Doom Eternal gameplay and found out it would also launch for Nintendo Switch.

Bertie spent the weekend at QuakeCon and talked all things multiplayer and Switch with Doom Eternal's top developers. Bertie was also on hand to ask about Bethesda's eyebrow-raising legal threat against a man who tried to resell a sealed copy of one of its games.

Back to Xbox Game Pass then, where Doom and Rage now reside. Subscribers can download and play both games as part of the programme's Ł7.99/month fee.
