Xbox Live welcomes back Doom

By Updated on

Despite all the great games coming out in recent months many gamers still have fond memories of classic titles from yesteryear. Some of these can be any number of the original classics found in arcades such as Pac Man, but others are from older games consoles going back years. One such game, Doom, is welcomed back to Xbox Live.

The classic first person shooter made its debut in 1993 and was brought to you by id Software, and now according to a report on IT ProPortal is available on Xbox Live again. The original classic has been made available on the platform by those responsible for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Bethesda.

Users can get their hands on the game for their Xbox 360 console for 400 Microsoft points. The game was arguably the defining title of its genre that led to a variety of rip offs in the following years. This is not the first time Doom has been available on Xbox Live though, as back in 2006 it was put on the service by Activision.

But in 2009 id Software was the subject of a takeover by Zenimax who just happen to be the parent company of Bethesda. In 2010 the licensing deal with Activision had ran out so the game was removed from Xbox Live until now. The game could get itself a number of new fans this time round besides other gamers returning to enjoy it once more.

Where you a fan of Doom or is there another classic title you prefer?
