Here’s Doom Eternal running on a smart fridge with xCloud

A crafty player has gotten Doom Eternal to play on his smart fridge using Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass and xCloud game streaming.

Richard Mallard took to Instagram to show off the feat, in which he enabled his Samsung smart fridge — presumably with some form of an Android operating system — to install Game Pass and use xCloud to frag via kitchen appliance.

Check it out in all its glory below.

Doom Eternal was recently added to Xbox Game Pass after news that Microsoft had acquired id Software and its parent, Bethesda. The title has been released for Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Switch and heads to next-gen consoles via free upgrade soon.
