Doom 3 is getting a re-release later this year thanks to publisher Bethesda and developer id Software. The game will be remastered with updated visuals, bonus mission content, and 3D support for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
In a press email sent out earlier this morning, id Software’s John Carmack (Doom’s co-creator) said, "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."
The part about using a head-mounted display definitely perks up our ears.
The Doom 3 BFG Edition, as it’s being called, will come with the original game, the “Resurrection of Evil” expansion, a set of brand-new missions, and copies of Doom 1 and Doom 2 to top off the set. Additionally, you’ll now be able to use a flashlight while carrying a gun thanks to the new “armor-mounted flashlight.” The future has arrived!
Here’s the game’s announcement trailer welcoming you back to Hell.
It’s been ages since I last played Doom 3. So this announcement is kind of exciting to me. I wasn’t expecting this at all, but now that it’s official, I’m pretty pumped for this release. Where do you guys stand?
