Tech 5 is a next-generation engine from id Software. Used on their most recent title 'Rage' it has also been announced that it will be the technology behind the upcoming 'Doom 4'.

Upon announcing id Tech 5 one of the first features presented to the public was the inclusion of Virtual Texturing supporting textures with resolutions up to 128,000 x 128,000. This technique allows the engine to automatically stream textures into memory as needed, meaning that the developer need not concern themselves with memory restraints or texture limits. A stand-out feature of id Tech 5 to developers is it's resources for cross-platform development allowing both consoles and the PC audiences to take advantage of it.

Some other features of the id Tech 5 processing structure include:

  • Collision Detection
  • Animation Blend
  • Obstacle Avoidance
  • Transparency Processing
  • Cloth Simulation
  • Water Surface Simulation

Doom 4 is the upcoming installment of the Doom series by id Software and a direct sequel of Doom 3.

!!! It will use the company's new id Tech 5 engine. !!!

It was announced as in production on May 7, 2008, following speculation by John Carmack at QuakeCon on August 3, 2007. The game is expected to be released on December 31, 2009.

Moron... DOOM 4 is not a sequel to DOOM 3. Nor is it a reboot. This is heavily hinting at a remake of The Ultimate DOOM. I could just imagine them remaking the whole game. Remastered music, cutting-edge graphics, and same gameplay.
