DOOM 3 Press Release

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

THE WORLDWIDE DOOM 3 INVASION BEGINS THE WEEK OF AUGUST 2

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.

Some info about surround Headphone 5.1 options:

You can either choose real 5.1 surround headphones or a 5.1 simulation through stereo headphones.

The first choice boils down to Zalman or Sony 5.1 sorround headphones, that IMO totally lack the sound quality to drive the experience home (the Zalman is cheap but sounds cheap as well).

The second option, in the form of Dolby Headphone, is much better (other virtualizers don't do the trick), and that tech can be found in separate units like the Philips HP1500, which simulates 5.1 surround wonderfully through any stereo heaphone.

I'm personally very fond of the HP 1500 (have one myself), and I posted some of my impressions on the Headwize forums:

Don't mind my overly enthusiastic tone, I'm simply incredibly impressed with the stuff this unit can do when it comes to 5.1 seperation. I find it by far the best solution available.

I hope this helps you in your search.
