New Doom 3 For Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 Supports Head-Mounted Displays

A Doom 3 BFG Edition is coming to the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this fall with "hours of new content" including a seven-level solo section called "The Lost Mission".


But that's not the crazy part.

This is (emphasis added):

"DOOM 3 was enthusiastically embraced by gamers worldwide at its release," id's technical director (and Doom co-creator) John Carmack said in today's press-release. "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. New support for 3D TVs, monitors, and head mounted displays also allows players to experience the game with more depth than ever before. We think shooter fans everywhere will love it."


The Doom 3 BFG Edition will include the original game with "greatly enhanced graphics" and a checkpoint save system, the already-released add-on Resurrection Evil, the new solo expansion, copies of Doom 1 and Doom 2 and...

Oh my god, there's more:

"DOOM 3 now features the new armor-mounted flashlight, allowing players to illuminate dark corners and blast enemies at the same time."

This is madness!

Also, I guess this means no Doom 4 this year. Figures.

Armor mounted flashlight...what the fuck id. Part of the awesomeness of Doom 3 was being forced to choose between seeing where you're going or being ready to shoot shit. Way to remove what was IMO one of the most awesome aspects of the game :(

I might still buy it though since I fucking love the hell out of Doom 3.
