DOOM III Announced

id Software Partners With Activision on DOOM III is the press release announcing both the official title for id's new first-person shooter that went by the "new DOOM game" label since it was first unveiled nearly two years ago (story), and a renewal of their co-operation with Activision to publish and distribute the game. As always, a projected release date is not listed, but the game will be shown at E3 later this month. Here is an excerpt:

SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- id Software(TM) and Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI - news) announced today that Activision will be the worldwide licensed distributor for DOOM III(TM), the latest installment in one of the most successful franchises in PC gaming history. Built on id's revolutionary new 3D graphics engine, DOOM III draws players into the most frightening and gripping 3D gaming experience ever created. DOOM III is currently in development for the PC by id Software and will debut at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo in Activision's booth #1224 in the South Hall.

"DOOM III will change what people expect to see and experience in a PC game," said Todd Hollenshead, CEO, id Software. "We couldn't be more psyched about DOOM III, and are thrilled to debut the title at E3 with Activision. Get ready to be terrified."

"We are excited to continue our successful and long-standing relationship with id," said Larry Goldberg, executive vice president, Activision Worldwide Studios. "I'm sure that id fans and action gamers alike share our anticipation for the latest incarnation of DOOM, which is one of the most important franchises in PC gaming history. There is no doubt that DOOM III will be at the top of every gamer's most wanted list."

206. boobies May 21, 2002, 11:36 =HELLION=
ahh yes... but if they know how to make there women they would make it with nice big firm boobies and and ass and legs that kill ... in other words ,,, if they have done it once (2 times if you count doom2) they they should be able to do it again and make it even better this time around because of the engin being able to support much more things (mainly multiplayer support and good special efx) altho they seam to lost the majority of all of what was doom , i still think there is a small chance they can make something that accually feels and looks like doom and how it should be today (then again there was q3 look how fake that shit looked):|

...DoomIII can only succeed if we let down our beloved memories of the past, all the chilling moments and ahas we had with Doom1/Doom2, and completely open ourselves to something new &#8211;not as easy as it sounds-. But being the animals we are, we prefer to pet ourselves with good things of the past. But that behaviour is like a foundation of our mind, and a way of basement which affects recognitions that are ahead of us. So playing the old Dooms was like kissing/fuggging a girl for the first time -a damn hot one in DoomI/II&#8217;s case-, and from this day on every new girl/fps will have problems in fulfilling our craving for unique excitement 'cause of being judged by a distorted measure our mind created long ago.

P.S.: Saying what&#8217;s been said before.

201. Realistic Expectations May 10, 2002, 14:22 Mortus
Please let's not get carried away expecting the second coming of Christ. We all know that it's going to be a good game. How good? Some will like it more than others as with any other game.

When you start expecting too much it only serves to lead to a dissapointment. I in no way am saying that Doom III will be a disappointment, unless you expect too much that is. How much is too much? Only you know that.

Be patient and you will be rewarded.

What id did as far as secrecy towards the project, is the best thing a companny can do to blow away its fans.

3DRealms might be taking a few years too many but hopefully DNF truly delivers, but in their case, it has been a very very long time. I bet you they're considering changing their technology to Doom III.....

I'm actually disappointed that id will be showing the game off at E3. I don't want to know anything about it (except for what type of system I need to buy to play it) until I start playing it on my computer, but with as much as I surf the net, it will be impossible to avoid knowing a LOT about the game after the show.


May the 3rd Doom be with you

Well whatever his name is, Actually the main point is why is everyone all enamored with half life? I never understood I played it and it felt just like a slow version of a fps. Instead of a red key or a skull switch you pressed an "oxygen switch", or a "rocket fuel switch". Also few of you will be scared because you have played to many fps. (hmm fps's) anyway my wife was playing RTCW and she was scared quite a few times. (I was even scared once) anyway if you want to be scared play it (DOOM3) late at night and take some LSD, actually you would probably kill someone then so don't.

Doom III much like everything (cept Q1) that iD software has produced it's a technology demo. Expect great games out of this engine. Get a grip n00bs. Quake64 anybody?

you sound like one of those people who, if they ever figured out how to create map in a first person shooter game, would create a map with every single texture in the game and every single possible colored light.
i hate] those people...

190. Doom "3"? May 10, 2002, 00:21 anon@65.32
i guess they gave up on giving it a creative name. quake 2 befell the same fate. "hrm, everyone's already calling it doom3, and we can't think of any better name. oh well, doom3 it is! (despite the fact that we tried to avoid this by calling it "the new doom game" in public for 2 years...)"

189. Doom III will suck!!! May 10, 2002, 00:00 anon@68.36
To all you kids out there, dont buy Doom III - it will blow chunks!!! Instead, why don't you spend your hard earned dollars on "Ultimate Special Mega Ultra Game-of-the-Year Half-Life: The Collecter's Edition," which will be in stores soon? It will retail for $80 (which we at Sierra feel is a fair price to pay for a 3-1/2 year old game), and it will include Team Fortress Classic, Counter-Strike (with an additional disc for all the latest cheats and hacks!), Opposing Force, and Blue Shift - the complete Half-Life line-up!!! With this much value in one box, why would anyone ever want to buy another game again??

-Sierra Marketing Executive whose bonus is pinned to the number of Half-Life related games sold in such fine retail stores as Wal-Mart and Target

U seem to take an analytical, almost engineering approach to why you play crazy dope wacked ass shooters. I guess this is fine, its just not the most ringing endorsement that one can say.

But u do LOVE tinkering with the editors.
There is hope for joy with your computer after all!

However, you still need more excitement...... dont expect me to wear a dress and lipstick so I can be your woman., I want more from a person is all............... demented lol
