A lot of us are waiting for October this year. I sure as hell am, for good reason. It’s when Doom 3: BFG Edition, the re-mastered re-boot of the original game, which it isn’t but is incredibly similar to comes out, along with more bonus content than you can shoot a plasma rifle at. Did I get all that?
In any case, it’s once again built on the id Tech 4 engine, used in the original Doom 3, as well as a host of other games like Quake 4, Prey and Brink. You might be thinking, “But that’s an 8 year old engine, there’s no way they can make it look as good as games of the current standard”. Normally, you’d be right, but id Software has performed miracles and thrown some new screenshots our way to drool over until release day.
The updated game will include the expansion Resurrection of Evil, as well as a new single-player campaign titled “The Lost Mission”. The engine gets an oil change and a new coat of paint to give it that “new game” smell, as well as make it look as good as it does.
