Doom 4 Alpha leaked?

21 02 16 - 22:13

Game HacKer sends report that an alpha of Doom 4 is released. He's saying it's not the MP beta people have played, seems it was from before.

It almost seems moot to even play as the game will be out in several months. So, if you happen to see the alpha around on sites just sit tight and wait for the real deal! That's my plan!

Doom (4) will have 17 single player missions

21 02 16 - 22:08

According to Guru 3D. How long will that last? Beth/id says ~13 hours so I'd say ~6-8 (based on previous games I've played faster then what was said by developers/publishers). There's not much test but lots of nice photos so check out Guru 3D!

Thanks Game HacKer for the news.

Doom 4 Release Date (?)

04 02 16 - 15:39

From id on my twitter feed:

2016-02/d4release.jpg

I guess that means May 13th. They didn't specify a year so hopefully they're not pulling a Valve.  ;)

EDIT: BTW, new trailer & preorder available:

The Level Design of Doom (4)

12 01 16 - 01:55

2016-01/c-610.jpg

Saw on twitter today a Game Informer video interview about the level design behind Doom. It's rather short (~3 minutes) but if you're like me and not seeing much so you can go “wow” when the game comes out, it doesn't spoil anything. So, head over to Game Informer and enjoy!

Build It Yourself With DOOM SnapMap

05 09 15 - 01:32

Bethesda gets in to some more depth on the new Doom SnapMap editor. This is for the new Doom coming out in 2016. The editor will work on all platforms. I'm personally hoping the platforms can also play together!
