Doom first delivered a shotgun blast of innovation to the game industry all the way back in 1993. Which means that many of today’s most voracious first person shooter fans weren’t even alive when John Carmack, John Romero, and the rest of id Software asked players to fight back against the denizens of Hell with a minigun and a whole lot of moxie.
Thankfully, anyone who was planning to pre-order the upcoming reboot through the Xbox Games Store will receive a Doom history lesson at no additional charge, as every Xbox One owners who pre-purchases Doom 2016 will receive a download code for the original Doom and Doom II: Hell On Earth for the Xbox Live Arcade. Best of all, both games will be backwards compatible on the Xbox One.
Players who pre-order Doom 2016 on the Xbox One (or any other platform) will also receive the “Demon Multiplayer Pack,” which includes a “unique Demon-themed armor set with three skin variations, six Hack Modules, six exclusive metallic paint colors, and three id logo patterns that can be applied to weapons and armor.”
Bethesda will digitally deliver the download codes for both games to your Xbox Live inbox roughly a week after Doom’s May 13th launch date.
