After 27 years, Doom receives official widescreen update

Classic first-person shooter Doom is 27 years old, but still receiving official updates. A few months ago, it received 60fps support. Now it's going widescreen. [via The Verge]

For the first time in an official port, the original DOOM renderer has been modified to natively render 16:9 without any letterboxing. The FOV has been increased to reveal more image on the side instead of chopping off the top and bottom. All new 16:9 versions of the titlescreen, intermission, and ending screens have been added. Many of our Add-Ons have also had widescreen support added, so download the latest version from the Add-Ons listing to check it out!

Many other new features too, including mod support. The relevant titles are on Steam as Doom Ultimate and Doom II.
