Bethesda Softworks has announced the details of Doom 3 BFG Edition’s release date. This re-mastered version of Doom 3 (which includes the Resurrection of Evil expansion, 7 new levels, as well as Doom and Doom 2) is, if all goes according to the Spider Mastermind’s plan, coming to North America on October 16. Europe will have to wait an extra three days.
Most of the press release focuses on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 version. For example, there will be achievements, trophies, a check point save system, and “fine-tuned” controls that will “bring the intensity of the DOOM single and multiplayer experience to the consoles.” However, PC gamers will pay only $29.99 for the BFG edition, ten dollars less than the console versions. Also, PC gamers who fondly remember the duct tape mod will be happy to know that the BFG edition has added an “armor-mounted flashlight,” giving players the ability to see things and shoot them simultaneously.
