DOOM 3 BFG Edition Announced


Bethesda Softworks and id Software have announced that a remastered version of DOOM 3 is in the works for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. DOOM 3 BFG Edition is due out this fall and includes HD versions of DOOM 3 and the Resurrection of Evil expansion. In addtion, DOOM and DOOM 2 will be included as bonus items.

Quote:
Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, today announced that DOOM® 3 BFG Edition will be available this Fall and features DOOM® 3 and the Resurrection of Evil® add-on pack, both of which have been completely re-mastered. The package also includes hours of new content – seven new levels entitled ‘The Lost Mission.’ DOOM 3 BFG Edition is slated for release for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PC and PlayStation® 3 – marking the first time any DOOM game has ever appeared on the PlayStation® 3.

Re-mastered for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, this genre defining game and its expansion pack offers greatly enhanced graphics, deeply immersing the player in the demonic world of this terrifying horror masterpiece. Players will also experience a never-before-seen single-player story, ‘The Lost Mission,’ featuring seven heart-pounding levels that will once again have them on the edge of their seats.

DOOM 3, Resurrection of Evil, and ‘The Lost Mission’ have been optimized in 3D, featuring 5.1 surround sound, Xbox 360 Achievements, PlayStation 3 trophies, improved rendering and lighting, and a new check point save system allowing for smoother progression through the game. id® Software has fine-tuned the controls to bring the intensity of the DOOM single and multiplayer experience to the consoles, and DOOM 3 now features the new armor-mounted flashlight, allowing players to illuminate dark corners and blast enemies at the same time.

“DOOM 3 was enthusiastically embraced by gamers worldwide at its release,” said John Carmack, Technical Director at id Software. “Today, the full experience has been enhanced and extended to be better than ever, and is delivered across all the platforms with a silky smooth frame rate and highly responsive controls. New support for 3D TVs, monitors, and head mounted displays also allows players to experience the game with more depth than ever before. We think shooter fans everywhere will love it.”

As a special bonus, DOOM 3 BFG Edition will also include the original DOOM® and DOOM® 2 games, making it the definitive collection of the revolutionary games developed by id Software, the studio that pioneered the first-person shooter genre.

One of the things they said was that the flashlight is on your armor now or something to that effect. I was just writing a post up on this, but I haven't figured out how to embed a video yet. lol.

I liked the flashlight how it was! It added to the terror and atmosphere and they shouldn't have changed it. Doom 3 is my favorite FPS of all time.

Better late than never with this, I'm definitely buying it despite the flashlight mod, obviously implemented to appease all you whiners.

I never finished the expansion pack so that's an added treat.

They should remake it on id Tech 5 rather than just upscale it. Oh wait, that's Doom 4.

Doom 3 was OK. Decent with headphones. The sequel kind of sucked. I tried playing it about a month ago and the control is pretty terrible my modern standards. Are they going to tighten that up?

I actually could never play this again and life would be great.

Further proof that id is no longer relevant. What have they done in 10 years?

I'll buy it. I like the idea of a little DOOM 3 on my PS3. I hope the price is $30 or less.

I will definitely get this. I loved Doom 3. It was like a fucked up haunted house.

Seconded! I could barely run it on low settings when it first came out so my best enjoyment of it came from behind a girlfriend's shoulder.

I'm looking forward to it now that I have my own dark cave, decent headphones and a pee bucket.
