Bethesda Softworks announced today that DOOM 3 BFG Edition is currently in development by id Software and will be available to purchase this Fall. This package comes fully remastered with lots of new features, and is said to have Full Trophy Support.
DOOM 3 BFG Edition comes with the 'Resurrection of Evil' add-on pack, the package also contains seven new levels entitled ‘The Lost Mission.’
And if that wasn't enough, the DOOM 3 BFG Edition will also include the original DOOM and DOOM 2 games, making it the definitive collection of the revolutionary games developed by id Software, the studio that pioneered the first-person shooter genre.
The game has had several gameplay enhancements, including improved rendering and lighting, and a new checkpoint save system allowing for smoother progression through the game, fine-tuned the controls to bring the intensity of the DOOM single and multiplayer experience to the consoles, and DOOM 3 now features the new armor-mounted flashlight, allowing players to illuminate dark corners and blast enemies at the same time.
John Carmack, Technical Director at id Software had this to say;
This is great news for fans of the FPS genre, DOOM is coming to the PS3 for the first time. It does seem surprising that they've announced it with a Fall release date, although it will probably get delayed.“DOOM 3 was enthusiastically embraced by gamers worldwide at its release. 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.”
