Bethesda announces DOOM 3 BFG edition for Autumn!

The flashlight catches a glimmer in the corner of the space-toilets. You freeze, terror taking root, knowing that every shadow could contain a monster from the very depths of hell.

Just to behold such pure hatred incarnate is enough to drive a man insane; but you are no ordinary man. You are a space marine. A… sparine.

You approach slowly, torchlight doing little to help, only serving to cast longer shadows.

A dripping sound indicates poor space-plumbing. There is also the faint wiff of curry.

The glimmer appears again. You approach, only to find a shard of bathroom mirror. Sighing with space-relief, you turn around.

It was just bait. The monster is behind you, blocking the exit. It’s maw opens, spilling red light.

“I give you nice smell bro?” it asks, gesturing with a small bottle of cheap cologne. In it’s other clawed hand is a bowl containing 50ps and 20ps.

There is no escape.

Yeah, anyway, DOOM 3 HD expansion set thingy, multi platform, good news for people who like shooting demons in space.

“May 30, 2012 (London, UK) – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, today announced that DOOM® 3 BFG Edition will be available this Autumn and features DOOM® 3 and the Resurrection of Evil® add-on pack, both of which have been completely re-mastered. The package also includes hours of new content – seven new levels entitled ‘The Lost Mission’.  DOOM 3 BFG Edition is slated for release for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PC and PlayStation® 3 – making it the first time any DOOM game has ever appeared on the PlayStation 3.


Re-mastered for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, this genre defining game and its add-on pack offers greatly enhanced graphics, deeply immersing the player in the demonic world of this terrifying horror masterpiece. Players will also experience a never-before-seen single-player story, ‘The Lost Mission’ featuring seven heart-pounding levels that will once again have them on the edge of their seats.


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 check point save system allowing for smoother progression through the game. id® Software has 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 armour-mounted flashlight, allowing players to illuminate dark corners and blast enemies at the same time.


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.”


As a special bonus, 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.”
