BFG Edition Pre Order?
Does anyone know if the BFG Edition will have a Steam pre order? It comes out Tuesday and as of right now there is nothing.

I was wondering this too, I thought it would aleast be on the steam store, let alone the comming soon tab. I have yet to find any information on the game that only dates back to August. I really want to get the game because the only time I played Doom 3 was on the orgininal Xbox and not on the PC. This time I would like to get it on the PC.

Same here! I have yet to see anything about it on steam, Though you can get it on GMG and activate it with steam (I think) http://www.greenmangaming.com/s/us/en/pc/games/shooter/doom-3-bfg-edition-na/

I was curious to see what the PC version would entail, I was wondering to see if it would use maybe DX11. Since they haven't released any details then, I probably wont get the game. If I dont have any information about it. Stupid really, you would think they would be trying to show off the game as much as possible.

I have the game ( Australia) as it is available now at the shops and it won't let me even install it. It mentioned that I already had the game (I own Doom 3 already) then goes to install BFG. Then error that it cannot install. Is there still a embargo or lock on the PC version on steam?

Doom 3 is OpenGL 2.0 and if they updated the render module of the engine, it might use the one in Rage, which works on OpenGL 4.1

Other games are using DirectX output with idTech4 but I don't think id would borrow that from third parties, having this new technology.

I'm begining to think maybe owners of the Doom complete pack will just be upgraded for free I hope not though because I would like to keep vanilla Doom 3 and have the upgraded version as well.

This tells me that if we already bought Doom 3 off of Steam, that it will upgrade to BFG automatically. Hopefully anyway. In case it doesnt and for those still on the fence you can get a Steam key for it from Bestbuy.com

Still nothing listed on Steam. I don't want to pre-order somewhere else. Wish I knew what was happening. Free upgrade to BFG? Sounds great ... and a nice little bonus for fans, but I'm not holding my breath for that. I just wish I could find and order it on Steam. I'm hoping to play it later tonight or tomorrow. Steam... anyone there?
GILLHUHN Oct 15, 2012 @ 7:29pm 
I know it's pretty annoying even if there isn't a pre order will it be availible at midnight? Or do I have to wait until the store updates at 1PM tomorrow? I have asked Bethesda many tmes but to no response kind of annoying considering I have $30 in my Steam wallet specifically for the Doom 3: BFG Edition. A little imput would be nice. I just wanna play the game I'm a huge Doom fan and have been since Doom 3 came out.

Anybody know if there's a way to get those extra levels anyway else? "The Lost Levels" or whatever? I have ALL the games in the BFG pack, so it's kind of pointless for me to spend $20 for 8 more levels.
Blake Oct 16, 2012 @ 8:26pm 
"The Lost Mission" I mean.
GILLHUHN Oct 16, 2012 @ 8:32pm 
There is not any other way to get the lost levels honestly I own all the games in the pack and bought BFG Edition anyway. I figured it was worth it for the updates and updated versions of Doom 1 and 2.
Blake Oct 17, 2012 @ 4:32pm 
What kind of updates are there for DOOM 1 and 2?
Blake Oct 17, 2012 @ 4:36pm 
Just the achievements?
