Bethesda Softworks recently announced that Doom BFG Edition is coming to PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 this fall. The package will feature remastered versions of Doom 3 and the Resurrection of Evil expansion pack with enhanced graphics, support for 3D monitors, TVs and head-mounted displays, 5.1 surround sound, Xbox 360 achievements, PlayStation 3 trophies, checkpoint save system, improved controls and there will also be an armor-mounted flashlight. In addition to these games, seven new levels called “The Lost Mission” will be included. But wait, there’s more, as the original Doom and Doom 2 will be part of the BFG Edition.

As somebody who absolutely loves Doom and Doom 2 and doesn’t have a physical copy of any of these titles at the moment, this package is simply great. I didn’t like Doom 3 as much as the first two titles in the series, but I must admit that even when Doom 3 was not the genre-redefining experience I was expecting, the game did offer a deeply immersive experience. It’s worth pointing out that PlayStation 3 owners will be particularly thrilled, as this will be the first time that these games will be released for their favorite platform.

Although I really appreciate Bethesda announcing this collection, they haven’t exactly said why they are doing it. Personally, I believe they simply want to hide the fact that Doom 4 is actually not going to be released for a long while. Hopefully, E3 will prove me wrong.
