Bethesda has announced that DOOM 3: BFG Edition, the next-gen update of the original DOOM 3, will be launched in North America on the 16th October and the 19th October worldwide. The BFG Edition will feature a higher resolution re-master of DOOM 3 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The BFG Edition will also include the expansion released for DOOM 3, "The Resurrection of Evil", as well as seven new levels called "The Lost Mission".
The BFG Edition will also include the original DOOM and DOOM 2 as bonus content.
The remaster entails stereoscopic 3D support, 5.1 surround sound, Xbox 360 Achievements, PlayStation 3 trophies, improved rendering and lighting, and a new check point save system which Bethesda states will allow for "smoother progression through the game." The flashlight will now be mounted on the gun, allowing players to simply run and gun without having to lower their weapon to use it.
DOOM 3: BFG Edition will cost $39.99 USD for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and $29.99 USD for PC. Prices may vary in other regions.
