Doom 3 BFG Edition Launches TodayBy: Sean Patterson - October 16, 2012
If you’re exhausted from loot-heavy first person shooters like Borderlands 2 or the stealthy and morally ambiguous gameplay in Dishonored, perhaps it’s time to to revisit the roots of FPS gaming and simply shoot monsters.
Bethesda today released Doom 3 BFG Edition, allowing gamers to relive the mayhem of the Doom franchise. All three Doom games and the Doom 3 add-on Resurrection of Evil are included in the package, but Doom 3 has been re-mastered and can now be played in 3D. In addition, Doom 3 now has improved rendering and lighting, 5.1 surround sound, a new checkpoint system, and achievements/trophies to earn.
Aside from all the technical upgrades, Bethesda has included eight new Doom 3 levels titled “The Lost Mission.”
Doom 3 BFG Edition is now available in the U.S. on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $40 or on PC for $30. The package goes on sale in Europe on October 19.
