Post Doom 3 BFG Edition will feature entire Doom series, seven new Doom 3 levels

id Software is Dooming us like we've never been Doomed before. Publisher Bethesda Softworks has announced the Doom 3 BFG Edition, which will feature the series' entire catalog, including Doom, Doom 2, Doom 3, and Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil, as well as an added 'Lost Mission' with seven new levels. The release date and pricing are TBA, but it's coming sometime this year.



In addition to new content, id has spent the past year addressing complaints about Doom 3?s darkness and difficulty (enter the new 'armor-mounted flashlight'), tweaking its lighting and rendering, and adding 3D monitor and 5.1 surround sound support. Many of the modifications are bigger news for the console versions, as we've already been blessed with smooth framerates and the famous Duct Tape Mod.

'Doom 3 was enthusiastically embraced by gamers worldwide at its release,' said id Software's John Carmack in today's statement. 'Today, the full experience has been enhanced and extended to be better than ever, and is delivered across all the platforms with a silky smooth frame rate and highly responsive controls.'

If id were working on it, this definitive Doom collection would be an excellent precursor to Doom 4, and Polygon's Russ Pitts made the same leading statement to id's Tim Willits, who repeated back, 'If one were working on that, it would be a perfect precursor.'

So, yeah, it seems likely that we'll get a Doom 4 re-announcement sometime this year.
