Doom 3 enhanced release

Announcement for all Doom fans: Zenimax (owner of id software) plans to release deluxe version of Doom 3 this fall called Doom 3 BFG Edition. It is good marketing move as this classic will be available for Xbox 360 and PS3 as well. The game will now have support for 3D monitors and enhanced graphics, which could be textures with higher resolution and basically allowing to push settings of the old idTech engine to use today`s full graphic cards power. There will be permanently attached flashlight and new checkpoint system. The release will also include Ressurection of Evil datapack and seven added levels called The Lost Mission. On top of that, there will be original Doom and Doom II completing the history of the title. More updates should appear during upcoming E3 gaming expo 5.-7. june.

Doom3 BFG edition can be pre-ordered at amazon for only £13.99 (PS3 and XBox around £20). Release date for US is 16.10.2012 and for Europe 19.10.2012. Considering how cheap it is and the enhanced graphics, it sounds like a good deal before Doom 4 comes around.
