Take a trip back to Hell this fall with Doom 3 BFG Edition

by: Nathan -
This fall Bethesda has your one way ticket back to hell with the Doom 3 BFG edition. If you missed out on the nightmare before then you'll want to pick up this 4 game pack featuring Doom, Doom 2, Doom 3, Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil and a brand new 7 level pack for Doom 3 called "The Lost Nightmare". If you want to get up close and personal with the demons from hell then you will get a chance as the game will now include 3D support. 

Other new features for Doom 3 will include achievements, PS3 trophies, a new checkpoint save system and get this will a new armor-mounted flashlight which now allows players to light a room and blow hell spawn away at the same time. This was probably the number one complaint I heard when Doom 3 was first released. The multiplayer from the original Doom will also return. No word yet if the original Doom's multiplayer will be online or offline only. 

Doom is my all time favorite game and I loved Doom 3 as well... so to this I say... SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.

Check out the trailer below and the full press release for all the details!
