Id software’s presentation of Doom at E3 2012 isn’t the sequel that we all have been waiting for but it’s actually a remake of the Doom 3 from eight years ago for PC, Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3.
With a graphical update on lighting and rendering, 3D, HD support and 5.1 surround will flourish. The ability to carry the flashlight and weapons at the same time, expect a checkpoint system and achievements/trophies. It will have both expansion packs Resurrection of Evil and The Lost Mission and the previous Doom entries.
Hopefully this remastered version is part of id’s plan to bring Doom 4 to us by stirring up hype around the series.
