Today is a good day to be a DOOM fan.
Bethesda Softworks announced today a re-mastered edition of DOOM 3 coming to Xbox 360, PS3, and PC this Autumn. The DOOM 3 BFG Edition will feature the heart-pounding horror FPS DOOM 3 and an add-on pack Resurrection of Evil which contains “hours of new content – seven new levels entitled “The Lost Mission.’”
DOOM 3 has been digitally re-mastered to feature greatly enhanced graphics for current-gen consoles, HD and 3D, 5.1 surround sound, Xbox 360 Achievements and PS3 trophies. This will be the first time any DOOM game has appeared on the PS3 (which means I will be picking it up!). The BFG Edition will also feature “improved rendering and lighting, and a new check point save system allowing for smoother progression through the game.” This was one of the larger complaints surrounding the original release of DOOM 3, so this makes the announcement all the more sweeter.
Remember that abominable flashlight? id Software has fixed that too, adding a “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.”
Oh, and it gets better. The DOOM 3 BFG Edition will also include the original DOOM and DOOM 2 games, making this probably my new most anticipated release of the year. For more information, be sure to stop by http://www.facebook.com/doom
