DOOM 3 BFG Edition Coming To PS3, Xbox 360, PC
Bethesda is planning to re-release another one of id Software's games. The DOOM 3 BFG Edition will be available for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC later this year.
The BFG Edition marks the first time that DOOM 3 will be available on the PS3 and Xbox 360. The 2004 shooter has been remastered to take advantage of those consoles' greater capabilities as well as more powerful PC's. This new version of the game even supports 3D.
The remastered DOOM 3 includes its expansion Resurrection of Evil and "the Lost Mission." Bethesda is throwing in DOOM and DOOM 2 as well. It sounds like those two games are just straight ports rather than remakes, though.
DOOM 4 has been in production at id since 2008. It's possible that the game will arrive as early as next year. Perhaps id will share some news on the title at E3 or QuakeCon this year. Companies often use remakes as a springboard for a sequel's launch, in order to revive long-time fans' interest in the series and also build up an appetite among the uninitiated.
