Xbox One’s backward compatibility features are once again bringing in bonus goodies for players; this time in the form of the XBLA versions of DOOM and DOOM II if you pre-order the new DOOM via the Xbox Live Marketplace. And just in case those games are already part of the dozen or more versions you have owned over the years, these will be supplied to you as codes you can give to friends.
Admittedly the games can be looked on as being ancient even by Xbox standards with DOOM arriving on XBLA in 2006 and its sequel four years later but they are still looked on as being great versions of the 1993/94 PC games that include a few extras including split screen modes and online multiplayer.
Even for old time’s sake, you might just have a bit of fun with them.
The new DOOM arrives on May the 13th.
