Bethesda Softworks today announced that DOOM 3 BFG Edition will be available this Fall and features DOOM 3 and the Resurrection of Evil add-on pack.
Re-mastered for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the game offers greatly enhanced graphics. Players will also experience a never-before-seen single-player story, ‘The Lost Mission,’ featuring seven levels.
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 DOOM single and multiplayer experience to the consoles, and DOOM 3 now features the 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.”
As a special bonus, DOOM 3 BFG Edition will also include the original DOOM and DOOM 2 games.
DOOM 3 BFG Edition is slated for release for the Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3 – marking the first time any DOOM game has ever appeared on the PlayStation 3.
