Doom 3: BFG Edition unleashed on Nvidia's Shield tablet & TV box

Doom 3: BFG Edition unleashed on Nvidia's Shield tablet & TV box
After releasing a native port of Half-Life 2 for its Shield series of Android gaming machines, Nvidia continues with the interesting strategy of showcasing its mobile hardware's graphics might by making it play decade-old PC titles with the release of Doom 3: BFG Edition.

Available from the Google Play store for owners of the Nvidia Shield Tablet and Shield Android TV, the $10 bundle includes the original Doom trilogy, optimized for Android-compatible gaming controllers. This is very important to be aware of, as neither of the games supports touch screen input. Thus, owners of the Shield tablet must buy a gamepad, while Shield Android TV owners have one already. ID Software's classics have received other modern day touch-ups, such as achievements, rendering improvements, and checkpoints.

Also, Doom 3: BFG Edition includes "The Lost Mission" expansion pack, which consists of 8 additional levels that spin an alternate storyline. Needless to say, much demon shooting is involved.

If you own a Shield and feel in the mood for saving the Earth from infernal forces (again), head to the download link below and grab a copy.

It is. "Support for 3D TVs, High Resolution monitors and the Oculus Rift." or what exactly do you mean?

OK, I got your point, I though you were just mentioning a higher resolution textures since you put the 'HD'. So you are looking for a remaster or remake kind of similar to halo collection where they added new textures and not just an HD version of the old one. Unfortunately, I don't think that's going to happen and Doom 4 is already in development.
