PC Game Pass subscribers now have access to more popular Bethesda and id Software games, including some old Elder Scrolls spin-offs and old-school shooters, like Wolfenstein 3D. Other games are also available for free in the Microsoft Store on PC.
Microsoft has expanded the PC Game Pass library to five new titles, which was announced earlier today as part of the first day of QuakeCon. If you remember, Microsoft bought Bethesda last year after regulatory authorities approved the billion-dollar deal. So now, Microsoft can pump Game Pass with old Bethesda games, which they continue to do today.
The PC Game Pass games that have been added today include some genuine classics from Bethesda and Doom designers id Software. Here is the whole list:
- Wolfenstein 3D
- Return to Castle Wolfenstein
- Quake 4
- An Elder Scrolls Legend: Battlespire
- The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard
Before this announcement, most of these games were very simple to acquire and play on modern PCs, but it's still nice to see more of Bethesda and id Software's back catalog make the leap to Game Pass. I do wonder if well these games would ever be released to Xbox, but for the time being, these are only for Game Pass users on PC.

Corporate mergers are a flop, and the idea that a few companies own everything makes me anxious about the future of media and pop culture. Still, if Xbox and other businesses are going to purchase some, we might as well exploit some of the advantages before everything collapses.
