DOOM 3 BFG Edition Coming to Consoles
Today, Bethesda announced DOOM 3: BFG Edition, a version of the game specifically remastered for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles. The new edition will be released on the aforementioned consoles as well as PC, and will include seven new levels called “The Lost Mission,” not to mention the “Resurrection of Evil” add-on.
What improvements have been made to the game for the BFG Edition? According to the press release, it’ll have Xbox Achievement and PlayStation Trophy support (natch), and “improved rendering and lighting, and a new check point save system allowing for smoother progression through the game.”
Said id Software’s creative guru, Technical Director John Carmack:
“DOOM 3 was enthusiastically embraced by gamers worldwide at its release. 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 edition also includes the original versions of DOOM and DOOM 2, so if you missed out on those classics the first time around, now’s your chance to get in on the alien-demon-killing fun.
No hard release date yet, but it’s scheduled to be released this fall.
