A new, mostly improved version of Doom 3, titled Doom 3 BFG Edition, just hit the market with sharper graphics, an attached flashlight and an additional mission. Yet, while this lost piece of content was sold as fresh material, a video has outed the mission as little more than rehashed assets from the core game.
Youtube user MarphitimusBlackimis made the discovery, and since he’s such a nice guy, he’s posted a comparison video that puts sequences from this Lost Mission against almost identical environments in the original Doom 3. Check it out.[youtube id=”Rv1nKtRH4xE” width=”620″ height=”360″]
If you were excited for the BFG Edition just for this “new” content, you may want to hold off.
