Original DOOM 3 Back on Steam; BFG Source Release Coming

The Bethesda Blog announces the removal of the original DOOM 3 from Steam is now remedied, and the standalone versions of DOOM 3 and the Resurrection of Evil expansion are now available at a lowered price for those not interested in the DOOM 3 BFG Edition’s release. This will allow players to play online with other owners of the standalone edition, as well as the ability to install the user-created modifications for id Software's shooter sequel. They also reveal that there may be more user content coming to the new edition, as word is: "For players with the BFG Edition of the game, you’ll be happy to know that we’ll be releasing the GPL source code in the near future. Stay tuned for updates."

One More "Defining" Game for Molyneux

"I’m only going to make one more game, I think," famed game designer Peter Molyneux tells BeefJack. "And that thought – the thought of every ounce of my energy, every ounce of my experience, every mistake that I’ve made in every single game – if I can learn from that, and use that energy to make one game… that’s what I’m trying to do." This comes on the heels of the release of Curiosity and word that this first of his company's experiments to lead up to this one more world changing game is not likely to be released for PCs as originally planned. They also have word on the next experiment in this series, Co-Operation, which Molyneux has described as being "like a tug of war," saying this may launch within 48 hours, which, going by the date of the of the interview, means it's already overdue. As for this upcoming full game that will cap his career, at this point it seems ambition is the only part that's fully planned: "Could I sit down and describe it to you in full at the moment? No, I can’t," he said. "But that is my thought. We’re going to make a game, we’re going to learn what it is to make a game in today’s world, and it’s going to be the defining game of my career." Thanks Develop.
