It’s A Good Thing Id Restarted Development On Doom 4

The Doom 4 trailer-that-wasn't, like a necromantic summoning ritual, appears to have opened a portal to a hell dimension of leaked artwork and footage. Supposedly leaked video and artwork posted on the Doomworld forums and All Games Beta show what the game once looked like prior to 2013, when development was scrapped and restarted. Now we know why.

DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM

Update: It's over. You can read all about it below, though. The short version: it's Doom, but with ludicrously violent, ultra-fast melee finishers. Not even sure if Bulletstorm was on this level in that respect. Otherwise? It looks ok. Fast combat, linear levels, emphasis on madcap action over scares. Original: It's QuakeCon O' Year again, and you know what that means: Doooooooooom. No, seriously. Despite…

Doom 4 Reveal Will Not Leave QuakeCon, Apparently

So the new Doom game will emerge from its eons-long hellsleep at QuakeCon later this month. That much is known. I don't think it was unreasonable for people to assume that any and all footage would make its way onto the Internet in short order, given that this is the year 2014. That, however, apparently isn't the plan. Bethesda and id want to make this…

DOOM 4 Definitely Actually Really Revealed At QuakeCon

You know how id Software always used to say they'd tell us more about Doom 4 at QuakeCon? And that they really meant it this time? Then they stopped doing that because they never had anything to say about Doom 4? Well, you guys, they really mean it this time. They mean it so much, they've even whipped together a cinematic teaser trailer saying that…

Mein Gott: Wolfenstein Preorders Secure DOOM Beta Access

DOOM is coming but it might well not be called DOOM 4 anymore. I think DOOM 3 was a reboot but perhaps it's not too early for another. Bethesda send word that preordering the new and spectacularly ridiculous Wolfenstein game will secure access to the beta for the next game in id's aged series. Presumably that's DOOM 4, or the artist formerly known as Doom…

Insanity: Carmack Takes Full-Time Position At Oculus

Well, this came out of nowhere. Actually, no, wait. I suppose I should say that all the evidence was there, but I refused to let it add up in my brain because come on: this is John Carmack we're talking about. He's id's divine ego, the pulsating mutant hyperbrain that looks upon desolate worlds and says, "Let there be graphics." Now then, it must be…

The Obligatory QuakeCon 2013 ‘Where’s Doom 4’ Chat

It's time for another grand QuakeCon tradition! Ever since the paleo cretacean era of 2008, I've asked id Software the same question once a year: "So, where's Doom 4?" Then we have a quick, largely insubstantial discussion about something else entirely. Eventually, however, my dogged determination to mention Doom 4 at least three times per sentence and occasionally roll my eyes back and just start…

Next For id: Maybe Quake, Probably Not RAGE Or New IP

Somewhere in the deep, dark, distant future, there exists a world beyond Doom 4. It is a strange and alien place - one in which id has pried the bolts from its lips and... wait, no, it's never done that. Always "when it's done." Always. But still, there are more id games in this far-flung universe, and also I have cool cybernetic laser nostrils. I…

Gather, Mortals: Carmack Speaks (And id Streams It)

The day foretold in The Prophecy is finally upon us. Every year, for just a few/ten/fourteen hundred shining hours, the planets are drawn into potentially cataclysmic alignment by the gravitational field surrounding John Carmack's brain. During this time, all eyes turn to QuakeCon's majestically orange-hued stage, where id Software unveils a new Doom 4 logo (NEXT YEAR WE PROMISE) and then Carmack erupts into a…

Dying Of The Light: Doom 4 & Rage 2’s Alleged Woes

The now Zenimax/Bethesda-owned id have been eerily quiet since Rage met a mixed reception and underwhelming sales. I quite liked it, non-ending aside - it might have nothing on BioShock Infinite's visual majesty, but the people-filled non-combat hubs between its more tunnelish combat were more convincingly alive than Columbia's Auton population. In any case, Rage wasn't the combeback Carmack and co needed, leaving us hoping…

210 Minutes of Direct Access To Carmack’s Brain

It says something about John Carmack's status in the gaming industry that he can hold a talk that lasts for three and a half hours and the majority of watchers are simply delighted. So, if you've got nothing else on for the next 210 minutes, here is said relaxed, cheerful, full-throttle, ad-libbed and fascinating QuakeCon speech in full. id's brain o'brains chats about the problems…

Feature: "All of the Dooms"

So Then, Where’s Doom 4?

QuakeCon is basically a safari. People stalk through the halls of the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas, tracing steps and leading packs of highly trained dogs in search of one mythical creature: Doom 4. Legends tell of a time many moons ago when its logo briefly appeared on a big screen, and in the moment, the hunt was on. So now I tip-toe through the…

On Other Id Things: Bethesda Have Plans For Rage

While we're talking Id, there's something else that came out of E3 that you might find interesting. Bethesda frontman Pete Hines told Eurogamer that despite the lukewarm reception for Rage, they have big plans for it: "We're looking at doing some things with Rage. But obviously the first thing out of anybody's lips now when we talk about id is not, hey, what else is…

RPS Asks: What Do you Want From Doom 4?

So, if the (reportedly false) rumours are to be believed (update: and apparently they're not. Hooray!), the future of Doom 4 might be in doubt. Which raises a question: what do we want from a fourth Doom game anyway? Should the next Doom game keep it old skool with a key-collecting run-and-gun? Or should it up updated to compete with the contemporary manshoots? Do we…

Damnation: Doom 4 Delayed Indefinitely?

Happy update: Bethesda's Pete Hines says this rumour is "complete bollocks." Hooray! Plus, additional denial. This is pure rumour, but the Big K are reporting that a source inside Bethesda told them the company has made the decision to "indefinitely postpone" development of Doom 4. This move, made at a recent meeting in Dallas, apparently comes as a response to general disappointment with Rage, which…

The RAGE Rave: QuakeCon Is Go

QuakeCon. QUAKECON. QUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE-A-CONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN. Just saying that name makes me laugh: truly, it is the most testosteroney of all gaming conventions. If QuakeCon and BlizzCon were ever to merge, terrible, terrible things would happen. Fortunately, id's being owned by Bethesda these days means there's no risk of that happening. QuakeCon '11 isn't far off - the doors open August 4. It's going to be a big…

Undoomed: Doom 4 Not “Reskinned Rage”

That's what id's design director Matt Hooper told has told Eurogamer. "They're [the Doom 4 team] going in their own direction," Hooper added. "They're doing something Doom fans will be happy with. I try to support them as much as possible. It's a good thing. We're separated enough to be able to go our own ways, but still connected where we can help facilitate both…

Can I See Some id? Announcement Tonight

Veteran news-commandos over at Eurogamer have spotted a tweet by John Carmack saying that id will be announcing a new game at QuakeCon tonight. In all likelihood this'll happen during his keynote speech, which starts at 8:30pm UK time or 2:30pm Dallas / CDT time. What could it be! Well, we kind of know what it'll be. It'll be Doom 4. We know id started…

Hell Yeah: Doom 4 Info-Trickle

Looks like id's usually impenetrable marketing fortress had a crack in it after all. Actor Brad Hawkins chatted to GGL Wire about the motion capture work in the FPS sequel, which was enough to reveal that the game would feature large-ish squads of human fighters working together - a mixture of soldiers and civilians. Does this mean D4 will chronicle an invasion of Earth by…
