Original Doom 3 returns to Steam

Costs six quid.

The original Doom 3 is back on Steam.

Hot on the heels of the release of Doom 3: BFG Edition last month gamers noticed the original version of the first-person shooter had been removed from Steam.

This meant that, at the time, the only way to buy the original version from Steam was to pay £76 for the Super id Software Pack. Gamers on the Steam forum complained about the move, particularly in light of widespread struggles in getting BFG Edition, which does not support mods, to run smoothly.

Now, it's back.

“On the heels of Doom 3 BFG Edition's release, we heard feedback from fans: you still wanted a chance to purchase the game's original 2004 release,” read a statement on the Bethesda Blog.

“Beginning this week, the original version of Doom 3 and its expansion, Resurrection of Evil, are available at a lower price.”

Now, Doom 3 is £5.99, Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil is £3.99 and the Doom 3 Pack is £7.99.

“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,” Bethesda added.
