As Promised, id Software has released the source code for the recent BFG Edition release of their hellish first person shooter Doom 3, allowing modders to play around with its still quite technically-impressive bits and pieces. The GPL source code can now be found on GitHub, alongside the inner workings of id's other past accomplishments.

Bethesda's Bethblog announcement also reveals that a patch for Doom 3: BFG Edition has now also rolled out on Steam, bringing with it a raft of new technical features:
NEW FEATURES
  • All projectiles cast shadows
  • Texture LOD bias added to menu options
  • Added option to force v-sync (instead of “smart v-sync”)
  • Adjusted default brightness value
  • Shadow casting projectiles added to menu options
  • Allow setting anti-aliasing up to 16x on Nvidia hardware. AMD/Intel cap is at 8x
  • Adjusted range of vertical sensitivity (allows you to lower sensitivity further than original implementation)
  • Added option to disable checkpoints
  • Allow left/right to enter resolution menu
  • Variable FOV settings options were added into the main menu
  • Added controller bind options
  • Added additional anti-cheat measures
Doom 3: BFG Edition will also be the first game to support the hotly anticipated Oculus Rift head-mounted display, which is still scheduled to start shipping to Kickstarter backers in December.

Doom is probably one of the most influential titles in gaming history. Released in 1993, it quickly spread across thousands of computers, and has been regarded as an iconic title not just for its graphics, but also for its gory content and quite satanic imagery.

With the release of Doom 3 BFG Edition, id Software has gone back to the first-ever full 3D title and given it a makeover for the current-gen consoles and PC, including the expansion Resurrection of Evil and a new single player expansion pack called The Lost Mission.

With a torch in one hand and the will to push on into the dark atmosphere of Mars City, our reviewer Dylan Burns ventured into the depths of hell to let us know what he thought about the new edition.
If you’re a Doom-a-holic, you’ll already own the previous games and expansions but will likely be keen on this in order to blast through and gain achievements/trophies. While the gameplay and design does seem surprisingly archaic for a recent-ish game, there is enjoyment to be had in the mindless domination of brain-dead demonic hordes.
Read on for more of the review.
