NowGamer: MachineGames is making a first-person shooter with id Software's Rage engine, according to job postings...
who would have guessed :P maybe Doom 4? cause if they said horror action fps it would've been too obvious
The guys who made Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay are making a game using id Tech 5. Those guys really know how to pump out graphx too... Graphics are serious business.
So what FPS isn't an "Action FPS". The description kind of sounds redundant.
Action FPS would be like Half Life 2 or Chronicles of Riddick. The Doom series has basically been a FPS, but the compnay that owns Bethesda now owns Id so Doom 4 may be The Action FPS it's referencing as Doom 4 will not a squeal to Doom 3 nor a reboot cause they want Doom to be more.
Just take a look at who is developing the game. Machine games AKA Zenimax. What titles does Zenimax own? DOOM, Fallout, RAGE, Elder Scrolls, The Crossing, Prey. There are at least 3 options here on the table. Prey 2, Fallout 4, The Crossing. Doom 4 action FPS possible, but didn't they already say its already coming from id software. Machinegames is different studio. Would id really just let another studio handle their child just like that? Even if IP is owned by Zenimax you would think id would be wanting their brand on it. So this could be new territory or perhaps even a New IP. I am betting that Prey 2 is most likely other option. If true it would mean Prey 2 material will be rebuilt again. Why do so many games want to be like DNF these days? Go through 5 rounds of development before showcased to the public.
I'm going out there and I'm going to say Prey 2.
Sounds like 'Doom' or 'Quake' to me.
if iD were the ones to make it and not Raven software then that would be amazing
Raven is busy with CoD so its possible.
I'm all for it. I like action FPS games. I kind of hope that Gearbox buys the rights for a Rise of the Triad remake from Apogee though. Or 3D Realms. Whatever.
Well it's no like I expected id to make a puzzle platformer. Seriously why are things even news? Reporting ID next game is an "Action FPS" is like reporting that the next game from IW or TA is a new CoD.
Doom 4 is already announced - and was said to be twice as graphically impressive as Rage due to it being locked down to 30FPS. I doubt it will release this year - but a trailer at E3 or Quake-con would be brilliant. This "Action Fps" is more likely to be a smaller project before the monolith release of ID's most renowned franchise - and i can't wait.
