Doom 3 Returns to Hell This Fall With New Levels and a Big F**king Gun


id Software’s terrifying FPS, Doom 3, is on the comeback trail for a remastered-in-HD release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 this fall.

The new BFG Edition will contain updated versions of the full original game (single and multiplayer) and the Resurrection of Evil expansion, plus a new seven-level campaign called ‘The Lost Mission.’ As an extra special bonus, the original versions of Doom and Doom 2 will also be included. Sweet!

“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.”

3D optimization, 5.1 surround sound, achievements/trophies, improved rendering and lighting, a modified check point save system, and re-tuned console controls will be part of the BFG package, as will an armor-mounted flashlight so players can actually shoot demons and see where they’re going at the same time. Apparently it took id seven years to figure that one out.
