DOOM 3 Press Release

Activision sends along the official press release following up on the news (story) that DOOM 3 is Gold:


Mesquite, TX – July 14, 2004 – See you in Hell! id Software™ and Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) confirmed today that id Software’s highly anticipated DOOM 3™ for the PC has entered manufacturing and will begin shipping to retail stores worldwide the week of August 2. A sci-fi horror masterpiece, DOOM 3’s dramatic storyline, pulse-pounding action, incredible graphics, and ground-breaking technology combine to draw you into the most frightening and gripping first-person gaming experience ever created.

“DOOM 3 is done! And you’re going to have it in your hands in a matter of days,” said Todd Hollenshead, CEO, id Software. “DOOM 3 is a videogame experience unlike any before it. From the cinema quality visuals and the incredible 5.1 sound, to the terrifying atmosphere and hyper-realistic environments, the whole game screams ‘interactive horror film!’ Add in the most ferocious line up of demons Hell has ever brought to bear, and you have an experience so intense that you’ll need to keep your heart medicine handy.”

Built on id’s revolutionary new 3D technology, DOOM 3 is a terrifying battle with the forces of Hell. In DOOM 3, your recent assignment to the Union Aerospace Corporation’s Mars research facility seemed simple enough, until their discoveries and experiments unlocked the gates to Hell itself. Now, in an epic clash against pure evil you must fight to understand who is with you, who is against you, and what must be done to stop this nightmare from reaching Earth. For more information, fans can visit WWW.DOOM3.COM. DOOM 3 has been rated “M” for Mature by the ESRB.

#88 PC games in the UK are £29.99 or £34.99 I think there's only ever been 1 or 2 released at 40 quid.

Over at they had a post about a special edition which would be priced at £44.99 (not even console games are that much anymore), Amazon and places have the retail price listed at £40 too, but who knows for sure.

I wish they would list the system requirements. My computer SUCKS... but I managed to get FarCry to run (and not too badly), so maybe I can force Doom3 to run...

95. Doom3 Episodes? Jul 15, 2004, 16:42 Rockn-Roll
The original Doom began with Knee-Deep in the Dead, but it continued with The Shores of Hell, Inferno, then Thy Flesh Consumed. Is this just the first Episode?

94. Time for a new machine. Jul 15, 2004, 13:02 MindTrigger
Kick ass... just in time for my new machine build this weekend. I'm building a machine with ALL the new stuff in it. I only wish I could buy hardware that isnt out yet, so that my machine won't be old in 2 weeks when the game comes out (lol).

He cut the possum's face off then cut around the eye socket. In the center of the belt buckle, where the possum's eye would be, he has placed a small piece of wood from his old '52 Ford's home made railroad tie bumper. Damn, he misses that truck.

"Full experience coming soon"

The website was not ready in time of the press release. Someone's head is probably gonna roll for that one.

89. Linux Jul 15, 2004, 10:02 Dante_uk
From updated .plan

"Mac & Linux: Unfortunately I don't have dates for either of these. However, Linux binaries will be available very soon after the PC game hits store shelves. There are no plans for boxed Linux games."

I'm looking forward to playing this on Linux, what are the changes of a) HL2 getting released 'this' sept and b) HL2 having a Linux port ????

Properly about the same as M$ releasing DirectX for Linux

Reading Todd Hollenheads .plan he's said the demo will be put together for a release shortly after the USA retail release (Aug 3rd). Mac OSX and Linux versions will follow ASAP, but the linux version will not be a retail box (?).

There is not going to be a DVD version, because of the costs involved of having two masters.

And on the subject of cost, why are you all bitching about a $55 price tag? The normal UK price tag for any PC game release is around £40 ($74) not £29 ($55).

Count yourselves lucky.

I've pre-ordered DOOM3 for £25 ($46) which is the cheapest new release I've bought since DOOM2 was released, at £20 ($37).

The whole "HL2 is better" crap from retards like Mr. Bleh, is just hysterical. If they want to be such fanboys, they should wait for the game to be released to make a genuine comparison, but the rational thought is a bit slippery for these individuals.

My philosophy is that DOOM3 is sex and HL2 is chocolate. Why should we choose? Have both!

AsLayer, you would do well to upgrade your video card to at least a Radeon 9800. You'll get to use a much better rendering path, and it should speed things up a great deal.

85. Doom 3 ultimate sound system? :) Jul 15, 2004, 07:44 ASLayerAODsk
well ive been building my sound system for a few years now...and its as follows

Martin Logan Aerius i fronts
PSB Image 8C center
Klipsch Quintet surrounds
Paradigm 10" sub
Denon 1801
Anthem MCA 2 *power the ML's*
All Monster cable
G-snake 1/8-RCA from Audigy 2 ZS to Denon 1801

its a mix/match speakers at this point cause i cant afford, yet, the center or the surrounds or the $2000/set, not many ppl i dont feel too out of the ordinary

84. Why Doom is out before HL2 Jul 15, 2004, 06:36 Zephalephelah
Fatboy Gabe calls Slim John Carmack.

Gabe: So who’s first?
John: Well, us of course.
Gabe: Good, cause we’re not ready.
John: Didn’t think so. You guy’s still need more coding help?
Gabe: Yes. I mean, we’re almost there, but yeah John can you?
John: Okay, but we’re raising my profits to 5%. I’m getting sick of practically making your game for you.
Gabe: That’s a little unfair. We have artwork and storyline that we do on our own.
John: But the game doesn’t work. Hmmm.
Gabe: Yeah, well your nose is pointed up buddy. Looks like two holes in your face every time I look at you.
John: So, you’re fat. Not just fat, you put the O in obese. You’re so fat they’ll have to bury your ass in a piano case, and fork lift your butt that’s hanging out of it.
Gabe: Shut up.
John: Gonna cry again. I hate it when you cry, it just makes you seem even more pathetic if that’s possible.
Gabe: I’m not gonna cry.
John: Okay.
Gabe: It’s just… th… tha… that.. you don…don’t res…spect me…
John: You suck kid. Sorry.
Gabe: Oh… oh… kay. Ya… you.. putting the ga… game out first then?
John: yeah, yeah, wipe your eyes bitch. And wipe your ass while you’re at it you fat fuck.
Gabe: That’s mean.
John: 5%.:
John: Bitch.

83. DOOM 3 Demo Confirmed Jul 15, 2004, 06:16 SlamDunk
From Todd's new .plan...

Demo: our priority was finishing the game first and now we are turning our attention to the demo. I
don't have any information to share regarding any specific content, but I don't believe that we have
ever disappointed in that regard in the past. We will release the demo as soon as it's done, but this
probably won't happen until after the game has arrived on U.S. store shelves.
