Bethesda and id Software have announced Doom 3 BFG Edition, which will release this spring. An updated version of the 2004 original, the BFG Edition marks the first time the landmark first-person-horror / shooter title will be available on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 (the original was released on the Xbox in 2005). Doom 3 BFG Edition will also be the first of the Doom franchise to be available on the PlayStation 3.
The game will include all of the content from the original Doom 3, the Resurrection of Evil add-on pack, as well as seven new levels bundled together until the title "The Lost Mission", resulting in "hours" of new content for the game.
From the press release:
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 armour-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.”
Doom 3 BFG Edition will also include the original Doom and Doom 2 games, allowing players new to the nearly 20 year-old franchise to play through each of the games in turn, should they so desire. Doom 4 is believed to be still in development, with a tentative release window of "2013" the latest known information about the title.
