Quakecon 2012 is in full swing over in Dallas, Texas, right now and for the first time in what seems like forever there is some news about the DOOM series. First off, we have the DOOM 3 BFG Edition, which was previously announced in May, but is now detailed. This edition will contain: DOOM 1, DOOM 2, DOOM 3, The DOOM 3 expansion, and a new DLC called The Lost Mission. The whole thing will cost $30 on PC and $40 on PS3 and Xbox 360, and it is due out on October 16th in North America and October 19th in Europe. The Lost Mission is a set of seven new missions and the graphics are certainly a bit dated at this point, but it might be exciting for those who really love the DOOM series. Personally I would just wait for DOOM 4, which has just been announced, but more on that in a moment. Take a look at the DOOM 3 BFG Edition trailer.


Tom's Hardware is reporting on John Carmack's keynote speech at Quakecon and he explained how much of the studio is working, iD Software, is currently working on DOOM 4. He also apologizes to everyone for RAGE's buggy PC release and wishes they would have done more to fix that. Most of everything he says has to do with how they are moving all of their resources onto DOOM 4 and even their mobile development team has been brought over to work on that. Check out the whole thing on Tom's Hardware post about it, but there are zero details on DOOM 4 so far, just merely a confirmation of its development. That may seem like nothing, but imagine if you are a fan of the Half Life series and Valve just announced that Half Life 3 was in development, you might be a bit excited. Lastly I would like to note that a great deal of iD Software's games are currently on sale on Steam, for PC, check it out here. That is all for now, thanks for reading!
