In the ten years since Doom 3 was released, Doom 4 has been fabled, rumored, delayed, and scrapped and started over at least once. Id finally pulled back the curtain on Thursday during an exclusive reveal at QuakeCon 2014. In front of a packed auditorium at the 19th annual LAN party/PC game convention, id played a pair of live gameplay demos (running on PC) showing very different parts of the game. As a thanks to fans here in Dallas, the reveal wasn

Makes ya feel a bit older doesnt it? Shoot, i remember getting my hands on the leaked Doom 3 alpha code back in 2001/2002. Pretty amazing at the time. It ran on my shiny new Geforce 3 :D

This sounds awful. Particularly the bold part. That does NOT belong in a Doom game in my opinion.

 

Totally agree, and I hope this doesn't turn out to be a game engine demo to show off tech 6. Like the way most games are going these days.

Not impressed. id Software used to push the boundaries when it came to PC games but that all changed with RAGE, when PC gamers were thrown under the bus. Even Doom 3 was a disappointment in comparison to Far Cry, which was released months earlier. This is going to have to be spectacular for me to even consider it, as id Software never did get round to adding the ending to RAGE. The early concept art for the new Doom was terrible.

John Carmack please come back.

To be fair I'd rather have him pushing the limits of VR tech at Oculus than wasting his time on another mediocre game at id Software.

we need to remember that id is basically a graphics engine company that licenses their tech, but occasionally makes a game that shows off the engine's capabilities. 1. graphics engines 2. games.

The last time id Software majorly licensed engines was back in the days of Quake 3 and id Tech 3. The Doom 3 engine (id Tech 4) was only licensed for a handful of third-party games (Prey, Quake Wars and Brink) and it was stated that they weren't interested in licensing the id Tech 5 engine.

A bit older?   A bit?      I played original Doom same year it came out.   Original Wolfenstein 3D too!   :cry: :cry: :cry:

 

 

 

Can't wait to play this one,  however MK style finishing moves and flashing dying enemies sound wrong for this type of game.

Agreed, doesn't belong in a shooter.  (And I still got my original Wolfenstein disks around somewhere heh)

 

Hopefully this time around they remember that duct tape exists too.

LOL.   So I am young then :)       Thanks!

 

 

Seriously though,  Doom 3 was a bit of a disappointment, and I am not getting my hopes up for new one too much...

@xrobwx - Yeah, Doom 3 was pretty annoying. It tried to do a story but failed; it tried for tension but resorted to cheap tricks, like limiting flashlight use and monsters jumping out of closets; it tried to push graphics but everything ended up looking plasticy with over-the-top shadows, unlike Far Cry. It was thoroughly mediocre, which was disappointing for a company like id Software.

 

I don't have a problem with id Software going down the survival-horror route rather than action-shooter but it has to do it well. If you want to see how tension should be done then you only have to look at games like Amnesia or STALKER. Based on the information released so far I'm concerned that they're going in completely the wrong direction.

Doom 3 was not a bad game (not great either). But it was not Doom. I'll never understand why companies don't start a new ip instead of milking an old ip when they want to make something new.

Actually,   Dead Space are more like it for a space marine horror, and, unlike Doom 3, they do it better.
