Doom 3 BFG Edition Release Date Confirmed
Doom 3 BFG Edition finally has a release date set for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Gamers in North America can expect to see the game on October 16th, 2012. In Europe it will release just a few days later, October 19th.
For those of you who don’t know yet about this edition, Doom 3 BFG Edition will feature a re-mastered version of Doom 3 and the ‘Resurrection of Evil’ add-on. Improved lighting, optimized for 3D, and 5.1 surround sound are just to name a couple of upgrades. Of course you can expect to see, Achievements and Trophies to fill your bragging needs. A new checkpoint save system will be added to the game, along with a new armor-mounted flashlight.
The best part of this edition? It will also include Doom and Doom 2, developed by id Software. To read on about remembering the original Doom by one of our writers Justin, continue here: Remembering Doom.
