DOOM 3 Gold!

id Software's Todd Hollenshead has updated his .plan file with the eagerly anticipated news that DOOM 3 has gone gold, and will be officially released in the U.S. on August 5:
IT'S DONE!!!!!!!

Yes, this is the official word that DOOM 3 has been code released and has been approved for manufacturing! It won't be long now until the anticipation ends and the PH34R begins ;-) We literally just hung up with Activision and have confirmed that our latest release candidate has been mutually approved and is finally GOLD. Thanks to everyone for their patience (yeah right! =) and for everyone at id, Activision and our numerous partners for helping us create what I believe is absolutely the best game we have ever made.

So, the next question is release dates. Retailers in the States will be allowed to pick up games starting at 12:01 AM on August 3rd. The official street date is actually August 5th in the U.S.A., but some of your favorite stores will probably have it early for those of you who have to have it first. Check with your local retailer for that information.

Internationally, the game will take a few more days to make it to the store shelves. The UK will probably get it first, on or about August 6th. Everywhere else will probably be Friday, August 13th (que Twilight Zone Theme) or close to that date, with just a few exceptions (e.g. Russia and Poland). This isn't because we don't have love for you folks outside the U.S., but the localization and manufacturing process takes a bit longer outside the U.S. where we will have JVC run 24/7 to get the units built. I guess the European manufacturers prefer to give their employees nights and weekends off. Go figure!

The champagne is flowing here at id and smiles abound!

I'll update again with some DOOM 3 preparation tips (not what hardware to buy - you'll have to wait for a programmer for that sort of thing). In the meantime, I want to see those "DOOM 3 GOLD!!!" threads set new records for swamping message board servers, destroying productivity, and post counts ;-)

Recapping today's headlines....DOOM 3 GOLD!!!

Huh, well it's not setting any new records here.. It's got a long way to go to do that. More people have posted about the D3 press release than the Gold announcement.

Well I've been a lurker for a long time. Figure this is a great thread to make my first post.

Doom3 Gold ... cool!

Now bring on STALKER and HL2 and my computer gaming year will be complete!

No Coop on the pc version dude. I did read somewhere that the reason for this was so it wouldn't take away from the scare factor of the single player experience. iD feels that in coop the scary stuff isn't as intense.

Thats cool, I guess but what I'd like to see them at least try is in one of the patches have Coop available. That way we're forced to play the single player game and then can go coop after the initial scare factor has worn off.

-------------------------------------------------------
but I remember back in the day when you and a friend could trudge through Doom maps together to thwart all the evil.
-------------------------------------------------------
>>>>> Me too, with my 14400 modem, a 486dx2 66 pc, and my S3 Virge 2mb card. Doom use to SCREAM on that system! Loved the coop Doom and Heretic!

GT, that's all you got? You missed out. Could've had the Ultra. Now you have a card that is the same as a 9800XT or less. Poor little idiot fucktard.

ID Software has probably caused more people to upgrade their computers than any other company in the world.

Doom, people this game made massive amounts of money. And back then, people had to buy more memory, better processors.

Quake. This is the game that ushered in openGL. Massive amounts of 3DFX cards were sold. This game was amazing.

Quake2. Every game you have played since owes itself in some way to this game. Myth, Unreal, Counter-Strike, Tribes, even Sims. Id always revolutionized the industry. They've always been on top.

Quake3. The very best games all come from this watermark. No one can put out a game that looks like shit & make money. Farcry looks as good as it does because ID pushed the envelope.

Doom3. The only game ever to be compared to CGI graphic movies (Final Fantasy: Spirits Within).

I'm excited to play Doom 3 multiplayer, but what I'm really excited to play is coop mode. Games with a good story line make excellent coop games. Single player is fun too, but I remember back in the day when you and a friend could trudge through Doom maps together to thwart all the evil. That was more fun. Then as things started to wind down then it'd turn into deathmatch.

First time through the game should be in coop mode.

Good or bad, PC gaming needs this game in a bad way. Let's hope it lives up to expectations...along with HL 2. I'm tired of bashing one or the other. I just want good games now.

Let the shopping for new hardware begin! Yup, just about everyone will be buying new hardware in the next month or so.

I hope it runs good on a 9800 pro or I will have to buy new hardware as well

JC is too busy building a rocket to write a stinkin plan.
He was done with the engine and code paths months ago.

I've got this puppy on pre-order with 1 day shipping.
At least it took the 1st reviewer 23 hours to finish on medium.
Can't wait to get my 6800GT and see the eye candy.
