The situation with ID Software —developer company DOOM since the beginning of the saga in the 90s – on Steam it is being quite curious. Texans are doing cleaning on the platform from Valve and have removed no less than 11 titles between games and demos. However, perhaps the most notorious is the disappearance of several DOOM games that, canonically, are still in force in the saga.
While it seems like a mistake, the studio is doing it with a view to QuakeCon 2022 and, above all, to make its place as a development studio on Steam much less confusing. id Software looks for those editions of games like DOOM 2, DOOM 3 either Quake 3 with a thousand and one versions, DLC or expansions that are already available in packages for those same games, disappear from Steam.
This means that, for example, DOOM 3: BFG Edition either DOOM 3: Resurrection of Evilgame expansion, have been eliminated from the store and all this content will be included in a single game: DOOM 3. It is a bit fuzzy, yes, but this way id Software will help players who want to know what is the best version of the games they are looking for.
The case of DOOM 2 is similar to its third installment. version of enhanced from DOOM 2, the Master Levels of the game and DOOM ending will be included in an installation package DOOM 2 no need for other executables. But what if you already owned Final DOOM or DOOM 3: BFG Edition? Although they have disappeared from Steam, the American studio will update automatically to the new version if you already have one of these games in its full version.
A mess that the study has tried to explain in a official statement on Steam where you can see which games are affected by this measure, and which are not. In addition, id Software has enabled a series of bundles with several games that you can buy like DOOM Classic Bundle, which includes DOOM (1993), DOOM II, DOOM 3, and DOOM 64; either DOOM Franchise Bundle with DOOM Eternal Deluxe Edition, DOOM (2016), DOOM (1993), DOOM II, DOOM 3 and DOOM 64
