Bethesda has announced that a BFG Edition of Doom 3 will be heading to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC this Fall.
The game will feature completely re-mastered versions of Doom 3 and the Resurrection of Evil add-on pack. Seven brand new levels are also included under the banner of “The Lost Mission,” and the bundle also includes copies of Doom and Doom 2. Bethesda’s official description:
“This genre defining game and its add-on 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.”
The BFG Edition has been optimized for 3D and 5.1 surround sound, and includes support for achievements/trophies along with a new check point save system. “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,” Bethesda added.
