Prepare to return to Hell this week, as Doom 3: BFG Edition hits store shelves, complete with the game presented in 3D, The Lost Mission, Resurrection of Evil, and the classics that started it all, Doom and Doom II crammed into one package. There's a new launch trailer to check out, showing it all off.

It's the (almost) definitive Doom collection (it's missing Final Doom), and you can grab it for the RRP of £29.99/€39.99/$39.99. Doom 3 and the accompanying content has been fully remastered, with 5.1 surround sound, proper HD visuals with improved rendering and lighting, as well as a new checkpoint save system.

Your torch is also armour-mounted, which means you'll be able to blast demon spawn and light up those dark corners at the same time. Doom 3: BFG Edition is out today in North America and on October 19th in Europe. Check out the hellish launch trailer here.

I played this games while at pax this year, and I am getting this for sure on thursday when i get paid. However the 3d thing I found while playing it makes it harder to aim, But they did have you standing about 2 feet away from the screen so Im guessing its better in a normal sitting distance.

"It's the (almost) definitive Doom collection (it's missing Final Doom)..."

Final Doom wasn't developed by id at all. All the games in this collection were (Doom II: No Rest for the Living was co-developed by them and Nerve Software). Why would Final Doom (or Doom 64 for that matter) be in this collection if ID DEVELOPED Doom games?

I already have Doom 3 for PC, and Doom 3 SE and Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil for Xbox, yet I'm still probably going to get this.

@9 Resi 6 has literally only been out 2 weeks max so it basically should cover the whole cost of DOOM 3. Can't see @8 paying anymore than £8 in difference max.

Just in case anyone cares, if you pre-order it from GAME you also get Rage: Anarchy Edition for free. Not much, but figured it was worth mentioning in case people were interested.

That is pretty funny that they are giving away Rage like that. Might raise the profile of a very good (but slightly flawed) game that was largely overlooked by the masses.

So it's like Doom3 for noobies or is there an option to still switch between light and gun? That's one mechanic that made dooom what it is, can't believe they would take away pleasure of playing that way... Still nt getting it, have it for PC and couldn't care less about HD graphics, but just saying=)

@17 Doom 1 & 2 might make up for the additional 400GS.

Shipping with only 600G on the disc was just stupid. They could have done 1000G for this since the other 2 games would be considered DLC items and show up as different played games. It's like I had 400G for this game years before it's release - just dumb.

#23 no I disagreed it not dumb. This is understandable reason why 600G is because 400G for classic Doom games. That ok you can check achievements list and you load each classic Doom games and put it under Doom 3 achievement list section to make 1000G from look and mind. :):)

For example:

Doom 3: BFG Edition or Doom 3 (whichever those will be name on gamerscore list) - 600G
Doom 2 - 200G
Doom - 200G

In your gamerscore section. :D

That no problem with me if they separate. It's not dumb.

Cannot wait for this game so much and game is now posted by (late afternoon yesterday) so I should have by Thursday morning. :)
