The lights are on
Bethesda announced that an enhanced version of Doom 3 would be coming this fall, but they didn't provide a release date beyond that vague time frame. That's changed, with news that the Doom 3 BFG Edition is coming this October.
More specifically, the game is releasing Oct. 19 on the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. As we reported earlier, the BFG adds a host of improvements over the 2005 original. Most noticeably, the graphics have been given a visual overhaul, with support for 3D displays. The game includes both Doom 3 and its Resurrection of Evil add-on, as well as seven new levels dubbed the Lost Mission. Even more critically, the BFG edition includes an armor-mounted flashlight. Finally, no more juggling!
If you're not up to speed on Doom's history, the BFG edition also packs in the original Doom and its sequel.

Awesome. Looks like a must buy for anyone who ever played the original, and newcomers to the cllassic series as well. I honestley can't wait to check this out.
Yup. Buying this.
Man if I get it I really hope I don't resort to the invincibility cheat.... Man that game was wicked hard
Any word on pricing yet?
Man, out of the whole fall line-up for games this year, October appears to be the craziest month of all of them. Already got several games pre-ordered for that month, so I may have to hold out on this one, just for a bit.
Alright, its a good spot for a release. Several weeks after Borderlands 2 and 2 weeks before Assassins Creed 3 (and LEGO Lord Of The Rings).
Wow, three Doom games? I think I'll be getting it.
yup... definitely getting this one...
october is a busy month for games but i'll most likely pick this up at some point
I still have the collector's copy of this for my xbox. I guess it's good for those that missed this amazing game, but I can't imagine rebuying it. pointless.
You know, I've never played Doom. This makes me want to try it
Having to switch in and out of the flashlight led to so many deaths. So. Many. Deaths.
