Doom pre-orders on Xbox come with original games for free

Get Doom and Doom 2 for a limited time

Pre-orders for the new Doom are now live on the Xbox Store, and Xbox One owners have an added incentive to purchase the game early: For a limited time, all pre-ordered Xbox One copies of the game come with the original Doom and Doom 2 for free.

The Xbox Store doesn't specify how long the promotion will be available. The codes will be mailed out to advance buyers of Doom within 10 days of purchase. Doom and Doom 2 were first made available on the Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360 and are among the backward compatible offerings on Xbox One.

Other pre-order bonuses with Doom, the first new entry in the series since 2004's Doom 3, include the Demon Multiplayer Pack that includes an armor set and skin variations, six sets of the consumable Hack Module perks, and exclusive logos and paint colors for customizing your character.

Doom will be available on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One May 13. Publisher Bethesda Softworks recently unveiled the box art for the game; we weren't fans.

Correction: Doom and Doom 2 are currently backward compatible on Xbox One. The text above has been corrected. Check out our full list of backward compatible titles for more.
