Todd Hollenshead, CEO, and John Carmack, technical director and co-founder of id Software take center stage Thursday afternoon for a back-to-back press conference and keynote address at QuakeCon 2008, where the company announced, among other titles, the next DOOM game.

Carmack said that the next DOOM game will look "three times better than Rage" and people will think it's built on another engine, because it uses more horsepower than Rage since it will run at 30 frames per second instead of 60 fps like Rage.

Carmack also explained that while the competitive multiplayer mode of the new Doom will not be as good as Quake Live is, it should still be better than Doom 3 or Quake 4 multiplayer.

As long as they dont make this like quake wars...

if they make the new DOOM game like Gears of War, that would be awesome :uzi: :AR15 :boom ..... but it should stick to it's old FPS ownage :)

I hope they don't make it like GoW. Doom is FPS and should always be. I think making it in the GoW style would be a cop-out for ID. It would be too easy to for the developers to spew out usual cliches like 'we've taken the FPS genre as far as we can' etc It would be an excuse for them not to come up with something innovative for Doom 4 in an FPS style and lets face it we all need a little innovation now and then.

I'm really hoping this will be better than number 3.

10-25-2008, 07:48 PM
They'd really have to fuck shit up to make it worse than #3. I have high hopes for this game because they've said they want to make it less like #3 and more like the originals.

More like the originals?! THE JOY! OMG I WANT!


I think a GoW graphic style is what would be good. Don't take the Third Person view, keep the First. But just up the GFX to that standard really.

If this is true then I can't wait for the new Doom ;].

12-06-2008, 09:25 AM
might be worth a rental :D

12-09-2008, 06:42 PM
nice one cant wait :) use to love playing quake 4 on the pc and doom 3 on the original xbox but quake 4 is broring now and doom3 iv played too many times lol :P
So cant wait for this one.

12-30-2008, 12:19 PM
Can't wait for the fourth Doom installment. I enjoyed Doom 3, but it could have been so much better. I hope id learns from that game and makes this one amazing

01-03-2009, 09:48 AM
Lets hope you can use a guns with torchs on them this time around.

01-17-2009, 11:49 PM
Let's hope it's not like Quake 3/ Quake 4 or Doom 3 multiplayer where all you saw was bunny hopping rocket launchers... that's when it bored me. I miss the quake 2 days where it was about using all the weapons that were pretty equally balanced. Except the first shotgun and blaster.. :)

02-25-2009, 01:24 PM
could be worth the rent hopefully its better than it sounds

04-07-2009, 12:24 AM
So what the heck are they going to call it then?

04-20-2009, 11:55 AM
looks maddddddd

04-21-2009, 07:27 PM
i really liked doom 3 and quake 4, quake wars campaign wasn't good but online was good, doom 3 campaign was good but online sucked, now if they merge...

04-28-2009, 03:39 AM
i wanna it nowwwwww.
whens the average release date?
this year?

05-03-2009, 08:20 AM
No way should it be like GOW, stuff that.
Doom 4 will be great either way :D

The last doom game on XBOX did not seem like a DOOM game to me. Let's hope they bring some of the original flair to this next episode.

07-20-2009, 01:26 PM
i think this will be an interesting game, the doom 3 game peeked me out on the pc

10-22-2009, 08:20 AM
Some of you guys talking about Graphics are silly :P.

DOOM 3 was and still is one of the best looking games out there.

We need an actualy shit scary shooter I think this may take the stage =O

P.s I loved doom 3, just to add my opinion to the table :P

Yeahh, if this game is anything like DOOM 3, I simply cannot wait to play it. DOOM 3 was one of my favorite original Xbox games fo sho! :]

02-14-2010, 10:46 AM
They say this isn't a sequel or a reboot, so what the fuck is it?

02-25-2010, 11:35 PM
Well, I've never the third game, but played the crap out of the originals back when they were released.

I'm not sure I liked the look of the remade monsters in Doom 3, anyway.
maybe it's good it'll be more like the originals.

04-07-2010, 11:55 PM
Got a perfect name Doom: Reconstruction Of Evil

06-08-2010, 06:59 PM
I can't wait for this fuckin' game. There is suppose to be new info about the game being released at this years QuakeCon, I can't wait. Until then I wish they would bring DOOM 3 to the 360, like as a downloadable Xbox original or something. I mean we already have the first two in the arcade why not keep em' coming? Or maybe DOOM 64 should be the next port to the XBLA. AGH I just can't get enough DOOM!!

Ooooh, sounds interesting. Will be keeping an eye on this...

06-15-2010, 03:06 PM
SO i never played the PC version of DOOM 3 so no MP, but what was so wrong with it? I friggin loved the campaign, was awesome from start to finish. And were'nt rocket jumps the staple of quake 3 arena's online madness?

09-02-2010, 01:25 AM
wow everyone is saying i hope, dont hope they make it great know they can make it great:)

09-09-2010, 09:52 PM
I loved Doom 3 if they just make it like they made that but revamped it a tad I would be happy, I don't want to see another 3rd person cover shooter like I saw someone suggest.

02-28-2011, 05:20 AM
its bluntly hell on earth, there doesn't need to be a plot.lol

also it Doom 4 because it been like that for ages, the logo was released ages ago

04-11-2011, 05:07 AM
That's awesome earlier today i was playing Dead space and was thinking to myself I wish they would make a new doom game!

07-27-2012, 05:11 AM
All I'm saying on this is Doom needs to play like a Doom game, not screw it up like Capcom did to resident evil.
