Doom 3 has gone gold! August 5th is the day!

I can't believe I didn't see this in here already... perhaps my old eyes are failing me, but I didn't see a thread that stated Doom 3 has gone gold!

For those of you who don't know what that means, it means that they are mostly done with it and are preparing the packaging, mass CD creation and the like in preparation for shipping. August 5th is the latest and greatest release date.

Woohoo!!!

Console YUK!

I don't think the Console would be able to handle it.(well if they optimize for the console it will) For that matter probably most lower end PC machines won't either unless you turn the details to thier lowest settings.

From what I have read, the requirements for enabling all possible eye-candy will be steep...like P4 2.8C/E or better, an 800MHz FSB mainboard with 1GB RAM, and a ATI 9800/FX 5900 or better video solution. Lots of people will upgrade to the uber-expensive FX 6800 Ultra or ATI X800 cards because of this game.

But it should be playable with low detail settings on any P4/Athlon K7 with 512MB RAM and a vid card of GeForce FX5700/Radeon 9600 or better.

Word is that this title is optimized for nVidia drivers, whereas HalfLife2 will run better on ATI cards.

All I can say is, it's about time!! I was beginning to think this was another 'Duke Nukem Forever' vaporware title...

Best regards,

No Doom3 Demo?

Here is something that is puzzling.

Why didn't they release a Doom 3 demo first? hmmmm

This smells of marketing hype to the max and then be disapointed when you get home.

When they released the demo for Unreal Tournamnet 2003 I thought the game sucked. Althoguh most people thought the game was awesome.
Whatever graphic engine they used to generate the characters I thoguht was crappy.

They released a demo for Unreal Tournament 2004 and the game rocked.
They had gone with another character generator and I thought the grahics and gameplay were years ahead of 2003.

Althoguh you could almost say it's a HALO clone.

id reveals DOOM 3 demo coming

Emphasis added by me:
Quote:
Demo: our priority was finishing the game first and now we are turning our attention to the demo. I don't have any information to share regarding any specific content, but I don't believe that we have ever disappointed in that regard in the past. We will release the demo as soon as it's done, but this probably won't happen until after the game has arrived on U.S. store shelves.
This makes zero sense to me.

I think id knows that they don't really need a demo at first. The hype and anticipation for this game is enough that they will do very well as soon as it hits the shelve.

Once the game sells out the "gotta have it - gimmiegimmiegimmie" market, they can release the demo and those people who are worried if the game will run on their system can try it out.

Besides, if your game was already a year over due and you had Half Life 2 snipping at your heals... would you wait another four weeks to get a demo out there and wait for it to penetrate the market?

It is curious, but it does make sense in a way.

I can't wait for D3 or HL2... I'll need to upgrade at least my video card though.

The offical website is up

While I was at the website I saw an advertisement for this company that makes custom foldable game keyboards.

Check out the Doom3 keyboard.
