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 Wink 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 Wink

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

Finally, let's hope HL2 follows Wink

BTW Spock, isn't this supposed to be Off-topic?

This better be a different shooter than the same one everyone else is so used to cranking out every year with a new setting... This actually looks promising and... relatively original. Yay for Id! Very Happy

I might actually buy Doom 3, after I have a chance to try it out.

It would make the fourth fps I've bought, after Doom, Quake and Raven Shield (which came with my soundcard).

the only good thing i see of all this is that that game is one step closer to be lost in history. im so sick of hearing about that overhyped shooter. oh well... at least now people can play it so they can start growing sick of it, and then stop mentioning it and then finally i wont be hearing things about it all the time.

/me goes back to getting hes old puta working so he can play fun games again...

is anything known about the medium that it will require? in other words, I assume it will need more then a single cdrom, but will I fit one dvd, will it be released on dvd,
Or will one dvd not even be sufficient for the amoutn of gore and scaryness they've wanted to spread Wink

I'm pretty sure 1 DVD would be enough. More than 10 GB for a game at this point in time? I doubt it.

And yes, it will ship on the XBox, but it won't be half as good as on a computer.

I know, I'd rather play it with a keyboard and mouse, but I really doubt if my computer will be able to run it. :smirk:

duh, I forgot that dvd's can easily be pressed as double layer, and doubling the amount of space.

I just hope it won be as much Wink
