As id Software is wont to do, the game developer has released the source code for another one of its products, the recently released Doom 3 BFG Edition. Coming about a year after the original release of Doom 3's source, the updated version is now available for perusal at GitHub.

The source for Doom 3 BFG Edition joins other id Software code releases including Wolfenstein 3D, Quake 3 Arena, Doom for iOS and others.
