The DOOM series will finally appear on the PlayStation 3, Bethesda Softworks has announced, as “DOOM 3 BFG Edition” is currently in development and will ship this fall for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC. The game will include DOOM 3 and the Resurrection of Evil add-on pack, both of which have been completely re-mastered for this special release. The package also includes seven new levels entitled “The Lost Mission.”
Re-mastered for Xbox 360 and PS3, Doom 3 BFG Edition offers “greatly enhanced graphics,” according to Bethesda, as well as “a never-before-seen single-player story, ‘The Lost Mission,’ featuring seven heart-pounding levels.”
DOOM 3, Resurrection of Evil, and “The Lost Mission” have been optimized in 3D, featuring 5.1 surround sound, Xbox 360 Achievements, PS3 trophies, improved rendering and lighting, and a new checkpoint save system allowing for smoother progression through the game.
id Software has also fine-tuned the controls for a console release, and DOOM 3 now features the new armor-mounted flashlight so players can illuminate dark corners and blast enemies at the same time.
As a bonus, DOOM 3 BFG Edition will also include the original DOOM and DOOM 2 games.
