Thats right, doom 3 has officially gone gold! Its been years now since we first heard of Doom 3 and now its finally ready to be released! In Todd Hollenshead's .plan he says the Doom 3 release will be on August 5th in the US; Europe will get it several days after.
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.
Activision also have released a press release about this soon to be released game.
“DOOM 3 is done! And you’re going to have it in your hands in a matter of days,” said Todd Hollenshead, CEO, id Software. “DOOM 3 is a videogame experience unlike any before it. From the cinema quality visuals and the incredible 5.1 sound, to the terrifying atmosphere and hyper-realistic environments, the whole game screams ‘interactive horror film!’ Add in the most ferocious line up of demons Hell has ever brought to bear, and you have an experience so intense that you’ll need to keep your heart medicine handy.”
Well boys, Doom 3 is set to ship worldwide on the 3rd of August. It's gonna be an amazing day and i hope you all are prepared for this fear.
