I know I’ve done a lot of bitching about the state of FPSs nowadays, but may it never be known that I’m not still a simple man with simple tastes as far as the genre goes. Because Doom 3 still remains one of my favorite shooter experiences ever. Fully aware it’s nothing more than old school Doom with 10 times the scare factor. Doesn’t matter. Love that game to pieces.
Bethesda and iD are apparently banking on there being a lot more of us out there, as they’re remastering and re-releasing the game as Doom 3 BFG Edition for 360, PS3, and PC on October 16th (19th, for Europe). Not only did they give Doom 3 a nice new coat of paint, but they’re throwing in Resurrection of Evil, 7 new levels they’re calling The Lost Mission, plus Doom and Doom II.
Asking price is $40, $30 for PC. For the healthy amount of content they’re throwing at us, the holiday’s best steal is pretty much a lock.
Enjoy the trailer down below.
