Doom 3: BFG Edition announced

Bethesda has announced that they will be releasing an enhanced version of id Software’s 2004 hit Doom 3, entitled Doom 3: BFG Edition.

Doom 3: BFG Edition will give the game a partial makeover, giving the game’s visuals a slight spit and polish, along with adding 7 all new levels created for this version of the game. The Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil expansion pack will also be included. Of course, no Doom re-release is complete without ports of Doom and Doom II: Hell on Earth.

It will be interesting to see how this game runs on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, given that the history of idTech 4 games on those systems hasn’t exactly been rosy. We’ll find out when Doom 3: BFG edition releases later this year.
