Game News: Doom 3 ‘BFG Edition’ Headed For PC, Xbox 360 and PS3
The ‘BFG Edition’ will boast re-mastered versions of both Doom 3 and the Resurrection Of Evil add-on pack, as well as hours of new content in the shape of a 7-level offering entitled ‘The Lost Mission’.
According to Bethesda, the bundle has 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. Developer id Software has also fine-tuned the controls for consoles, and - perhaps as a knowing nod to fan in-jokes – the game now features a 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,” says 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.”
The fact that the collection also includes FPS classics Doom and Doom 2 as well, certainly won’t hurt matters.
