We've got ourselves a new trailer for October's Doom 3: BFG Edition. This one highlights the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 game's new eight-level "Lost Mission."
But what about Doom 4? Id is still working on it—they even moved their mobile designers onto the project, begging off any more mobile gaming for the time being—but that's about all we know. Given that today is the kickoff for id's annual Quakecon event and that's all they're saying, that's pretty much all we're going to be told, officially, for quite some time.
Flipping tables. It's about as perfect a rage moment as you can get. And now, in WoW's upcoming Mists of Pandaria expansion, you'll be able to do it in a video game.
While there's actually a Japanese arcade game centred around this very premise, it's a Japanese arcade game. This will be a little more accessible.

The remastered edition of Doom 3 announced a few weeks ago will hit PCs, PS3s and Xbox 360s this October. The BFG edition of the classic first-person-shooter will also include full versions of Doom 1 and Doom 2, along with seven new Doom 3 levels and the Resurrection of Evil add-on. The whole shebang will cost $29.99 for PCs and $39.99 for consoles.
While we’re talking Id, there’s something else that came out of E3 that you might find interesting. Bethesda frontman Pete Hines told Eurogamer that despite the lukewarm reception for Rage, they have big plans for it: “We’re looking at doing some things with Rage. But obviously the first thing out of anybody’s lips now when we talk about id is not, hey, what else is up with Rage? They’re asking the question they’ve been asking for five years, six years, seven years, which is, where’s Doom 4? What about Doom 4? As far as where we are with Rage, the future for that is still TBD.”
Which is interesting, because whatever the do with Doom, I felt like Rage was a move in the right direction, but didn’t quite go all out on any of the things that it was hinting at. The half-formed racing, half-formed exploration, half-formed crafting, all pointed to a deeper game which, if they concentrate on just one of those elements next time, might yet yield something beyond the usual adventure with shotguns. Id are also working on another shooter, which has yet to be revealed.
Sadly, no head-mounted displays or armor-mounted flashlights here. Just ugly monsters. Ugly, ugly monsters.
