It looks like Doom Eternal could be the next major arrival on Xbox Game Pass. The game has been teased by the Xbox Game Pass Twitter with a subtle message - "The Slayer is Coming".

Shortly after the announcement of Bethesda/Zenimax acquisition, Microsoft are reportedly starting to add some of the games' from the publisher's portfolio to their subscription service Xbox Game Pass. In one of their recent tweets, Xbox Game Pass Twitter have teased the arrival of Doomslayer.

"Melissa said not to drop hints so we're not dropping hints. There are absolutely no hints in this screenshot. Don't bother looking for them. There are none," they wrote in the post, which you can check out below.

At first glance, you probably did not notice absolutely anything that would suggest Doom Eternal is coming to Xbox Game Pass. However, if you adjust the brightness and contrast of the image, a subtle hint appears right at the bottom - "The Slayer is Coming".

The Slayer, of course, refers to the iconic protagonist - The Doomslayer - so it's safe to say that Doom Eternal is coming to Game Pass very soon. Some would argue that the original game could also arrive, which would not be surprising at all since it was already available on Game Pass earlier. 

All in all, it looks like Microsoft are not wasting any time after the acquisition and we can't wait to get the next batch of Bethesda games on Game Pass. 

In case you somehow missed the news, all Bethesda games will be coming to Game Pass on the launch, which means you'll get to play Elder Scrolls VI, Starfield and other blockbusters for just $15 a month.
