Bethesda is building up hype for Doom 4...

SuperLupe2388d ago

At this point can it still be a game for this gen ? I mean I bet the game will be out fall 2013 at the earliest but by that time next gen will be in or just around the corner. Maybe they'll skip current gen machines and go 720/PS4 right away.

kmanmx2387d ago

Perhaps but remember the 70m install base on each console by then won't dissapear, a lot of people won't upgrade to the new console straight away.

There will still be a lot of money to be made on current gen for a year or two after the new consoles are released.

But I do hope it is a next gen title.


It really depends on when are those next gen consoles releasing too. The only one supposed to release soon is the WiiU, the other ones we don't have even seen yet.

I don't think they would hold production of console versions till next gen, even if the current gen performance is inferior to what they were aiming for, just to have to deal with small intalled bases of new hardware anyway...

Specially considering this is a remaster they could be aiming to release it much sooner than fall 2013 and build hype to Doom 4 for consoles next gen. Remember that Doom is firstly a PC franchise, so making console owners familiar with it using a remastered title makes sense.

Following the same path that Hitman: Blood Money took, they release the full version for the next gen system. While releasing a similar yet slightly gimped version for current consoles, appealing to the mass install base. In this case, the next gen version would be the full version that is the same as the PC.

Thats what I think they might do.

adorie2387d ago

If they got this on Steam I will pre-order it.

It really is a no-brainer for me.

jjdoyle2387d ago

Love Steam. Great service, great games, great prices!

Oh_Yeah2387d ago

bethesda is king of gaming this gen, cant wait for dishonered and fallout 4

primesuspect2388d ago

And every gamer who remembers paying $50 for that piece of crap scratches their collective heads...

NYC_Gamer2388d ago

I thought Doom 3 was the worst version

john22388d ago

To be honest, I enjoyed Doom 3. iD had stated countless of times in their interviews that it would be a slow-paced horror experience and it was great IMO (for it's time, especially when played at night with all the lights off)

Statix2388d ago (Edited 2388d ago )

DOOM 3 was merely okay, imo. Many gamers would describe it as "mediocre," and I think that's a a fair description. Insofar as "slow-paced, horror" experiences in an FPS, F.E.A.R. had it beat. Not only were the atmospheric horror elements better done, but the base gunplay, gameplay mechanics, and A.I. were better as well. I was drooling in anticipation for DOOM 3, but when it finally came out, I was personally disappointed.

Again, a decently enjoyable game, but not particularly memorable or unique.

cervantes992388d ago

Sorry, but I loved it. I enjoyed the slow paced horror element to the game as opposed to another military shooter.

Can't wait to play it remastered.

Kurt Russell2387d ago

I thought Doom 3 was excellent. Linear but a great bit of fun... I'm getting this and spazzing out with the berzerk powerup on multiplayer as soon as poss.

mananimal2387d ago

man your just nuts, Doom3 is the sickest shooter next to Half Life series IMO.

TENTONGUN2387d ago (Edited 2387d ago )

disagree, thought doom3 was just as good. i only played the original xbox version halfway then my xbox shit out on me. been wanting an hd version for years and im finaly getting it, and no im not a pc gamer. should be a discounted dl on live or psn, if not that would suck

I loved it, it was great. I've completed it many times over the years so I'm interested to see how they remaster it.

rmedtx2388d ago (Edited 2388d ago )

I am getting it.

mananimal2387d ago (Edited 2387d ago )

No doubt, Cant Wait, sign me up for my CORE, NO HOLDS BARRED, DONT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT THE CASUAL SHOOTER FAN, FPS, & thank you. Doom 3 is one of the sickest shooters period, it never gets old & Ive beat & play this game more than any other shooter by far, still own & play the xbox version & its expansion, love it. & @Moncole, ...Fuck STEAM(DRM), when your Local IP goes down or STEAM does, your twiddling your thumbs while Im still gaming cause I will OWN a DISC COPY, nuff said.

Moncole2388d ago

The people who have Doom 3 on Steam should get it for free.

RankFTW2388d ago

People who disagree don't have the game on Steam.

MySwordIsHeavenly2388d ago

Everybody has it on Steam already though. Very few people would be giving them actual money.

callahan092387d ago

I have it on Steam and I disagree (though I didn't click disagree) because the game is having new effort put into it for remastering. You bought the game probably as long as years ago, you got what you paid for and that doesn't and shouldn't have to include remakes of the game that come out at some distant point after you bought it originally. A remake and the original are not the same product so owning the original does not entitle you to the future endeavor. Now I could see an argument for requesting the original come included with the remake...
