The Doom 3 mod, Codename: DOOM, is a a project that aims to re-create the original DOOM under an improved id Tech 4 engine. It's not a simple direct conversion, it's redoing everything from scratch based on the original designs but with a modern look. Similar to the Resident Evil remake for Gamecube years ago.

There's lots of nice screenshots over at moddb.com, with a few below. It's still a work in progress but the art is looking nice!

Quake Champions Revealed @ E3

13 06 16 - 14:48

id/Bethesda have reveleaed their next game in the Doom/Quake lineup, and that's Quake Champions. Trailer below:

The descriptions is “The fast, skill-based arena-style competition that turned the original Quake games into multiplayer legends is making a triumphant return with Quake Champions. Running at an impressive 120hz with unlocked framerates, id Software’s new multiplayer shooter is getting ready to take PC gaming by storm once more.

Quake Champions features a roster of unique characters, each with their own distinctive abilities, allowing you to fight the way you want. . Get your first look at Quake Champions and some of its heroes in the cinematic reveal trailer, debuted during the #BE3 2016 Showcase.
To stay up to date with all the latest information on Quake Champions, head to Quake.com.”

 From the look of it, it's Generations Arena, but commercial. That could be pretty neat! One thing pointed out to me is that next week is the Quake release anniversary and the Quake guy is killed in the trailer at the end! Bummer! :(

QuakeExpo 2016: Last QuakeExpo Ever (?)

06 06 16 - 12:29

QuakeExpo, the virtual Quake expo to show off your stuff, is scheduled to run between July 16th to the 30th. Booth previews will start showing up June 18th. It's the 20 year anniversary of Quake, so show your Quake love my visiting, commenting, and possible posting, a booth for all to see!

You may be wondering how it's between June 18th and 30th if it's hosted online. Well, like a “real world” expo, the booths can only be updated between those dates.

It's still pretty empty, so if you've got a Quake project, or anything Quake related, head on over, register, and setup a booth!

Use #qexpo to promote!

Thanks Func_Msgboard for the heads up!
