Bethesda is bringing id Software’s DOOM 3 to the current generation. The publisher today announced it will release DOOM 3 BFG Edition, which includes DOOM 3 and the “Resurrection of Evil” add-on pack, for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC this fall. Remastered in high-definition, it marks the first time a DOOM title has appeared on PlayStation 3.
The remaster promises “greatly enhanced graphics” and ‘deep immersion,’ as well as a “never-before-seen single-player story” dubbed ‘The Lost Mission’, featuring seven new “heart-pounding” levels. The game has been optimized in 3D, features 5.1 surround sound, achievements / trophies, improved rendering and lighting, and a new check point save system to allow for smoother progression through the game.
“DOOM 3 was enthusiastically embraced by gamers worldwide at its release,” said John Carmack, Technical Director at id Software. “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.”
DOOM 3 BFG Edition will also include the original DOOM and DOOM II. Watch the debut trailer below.
