id Software and Bethesda today released some news that’ll be a BFD to certain FPS fans: the release date for DOOM 3 BFG Edition. DOOM 3 BFD Edition includes DOOM 3, its expansion packs, and the original DOOM and DOOM 2 games. This entire package, called DOOM 3 BFG, is slated to release in North America on October 16 and in Europe on October 19.
All told, DOOM 3 BFG Edition features re-mastered versions of both DOOM 3 and the Resurrection of Evil DLC, as well seven new levels of content called “The Lost Mission.”
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 checkpoint system that allows for smoother progression through the game. id Software has also fine-tuned the controls for the consoles, and they’ve given DOOM 3 the new armor-mounted flashlight so players can illuminate dark corners and blast enemies at the same time.
DOOM 3 BFG Edition will be available in North America on PC for $29.99 and on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $39.99.
