Idsoft just put it on hold until they could get Rage out the door.


They canceled it after they saw how bad Rage did, I feel bad for ID they used to make great games but Call of Duty has pushed the FPS limit so far forward what IDs making now is no longer all that impressive and looks rather dated.

ID should make Quake III with modern graphics IMO.
Going COD route is being a tool.

They haven't made good games since doom. And even that wasn't that good. It was imply violent and the first decent fps. It just didn't have much, any, competition.

Here's a tweet from iD Software's Mathew Hooper:

oh I see. Those images have nothing to do with what you're gonna see in Doom4. When we officially show things you'll see awesome

The screenshots don't look too bad but they're not impressive either. It looks like a showcase of early Doom 4 assets in id tech 5. My expectations for the game dropped when I played Rage for the first time. The texture and performance issues were almost inexcusable. I really hope they improve the engine for Doom 4.

So we know Doom 4 isn't cancelled. Good. I really enjoyed Doom 3 and Ressurection of Evil. But they are very linear.

I kinda hope with Doom 4 they add more NPC interaction and sort of get off the linear, corridor shooter and take a dip into some more open area environments. I know Mars is still a toxic wasteland in Doom 3, but I'm sure there's some areas of the UAC buildings are massive.

I was never a massive fan of the series but I liked D3 and would probably play this. Interested in the story from D3 to this though, hell of earth by the looks of it.

they might be following the original series path, doom2 was doom2 hell on earth and there were a few levels on set on earth.

Although i agree this looked more like screen shots from fallout/rage

These are probably early alpha drawings and what not. It couldn't possibly look any worse than Rage did on PC. Which looked like utter garbage IMHO.

ID has always been more about tech demos than actual games. They have never put much (any?) effort into releasing games with interesting plots or characters, just somewhat fun products that showed their engines capabilities.

That's why Quake3 is probably their most popular game: it didn't even pretend to follow any kind of storyline, it was just a fun arena game.

These look really nice. Much better than D3:BFG.

As a side not, other than the graphical glitches, RAGE was pretty cool, imo.

Isn't the McDonald's logo copyrighted?

So much hate on Rage... I liked it a lot and feel it was grossly underrated and berated. It looks great, runs great, and is fun for what it is.
