Additionally, Xbox Game Pass subscribers can now also get access to the Champions Bundle for Quake Champions, which allows gamers to play with all 16 characters. According to reports, the move is to promote the official release of Quake Champions.

The game has been in early access since 2017, however, the full version is now available as a free-to-play title, the report mentions. Furthermore, the report adds that Wolfenstein 3D, Return To Castle Wolfenstein and Quake 4 are not yet available on the Microsoft Store in Germany.
More games added by Microsoft for PC users
According to the report, Microsoft has also quietly made the entire series of fantasy first-person shooters, Hexen/Heretic available for purchase on PC. These games cost £3.99 each and are not part of the Game Pass.
The report claims that the games currently available for purchase on PC include – Heretic: Shadow Of The Serpent Riders (first game from 1996), Hexen: Beyond Heretic (a 1995 sequel) and Hexen: Deathkings Of The Dark Citadel (an expansion for Beyond Heretic).
However, the report also adds that the only missing entry in the series is Heretic 2, the last entry released in 1998. The report notes that at this point developer Raven Software of series has been acquired by Activision, so the company (which Microsoft has been trying to acquire since early 2022) holds the publishing rights to the game.
