Go Back to Hell - Remastered Doom 3 BFG Edition Announced
Bethesda, id’s new parent company, is releasing a retouched version of Doom 3 for the PC (surprise!), PS3, and Xbox 360. The game earns its BFG moniker through the inclusion of the original Doom 3, the Resurrection of Evil expansion, and seven brand new levels composing “The Lost Mission” – an entirely original chunk of hell developed specifically for BFG rather than assets left out of the game eight years ago.
You can expect bells and whistles like troph’s and cheevos, including online multiplayer, but little-big changes can be found such as an established checkpoint system, tightened controls, and an armor-mounted flashlight (I’m told this will help greatly). Past that, the original Doom and Doom 2 are being quietly yet triumphantly added to the collection. I suppose the publisher avoided calling the set Doom Trilogy since the titles aren’t doctored anymore than the re-releases you can find on XBLA, but I’m excited to call all of these circles of hell mine. (If they wanted to add a cherry on top that literally pries my wallet open, they’ll include a demo of Doom 4.)
Doom 3 BFG Edition is slated for the third quarter of this year. You’ve been warned.
