Yesterday, id announced that a master copy of their long-awaited game has finally been sent to Activision for mass production, this coming after years of anticipation. The release date is listed at August 3, but probably won’t be on shelves till the 5th.
Now today, id announced that they are already working on a demo of the game, which will be released sometime after the official release of the full game.
Just as the first Doom revolutionized the video gaming experience, so will the third installment, featuring the best graphics in any game currently available as well as the return of the beloved experience from the first and second game. Audio will be equally good as the game allows owners of 2-channel sound cards to experience surround sound.
The retail price of the game when released is going to be $54.99, but I’d wait and try the demo before shelling out $55 so you’ll know how well the game performs on your system.
They recommend a GeForceFX, I have a GeForce4 Ti, the card right under the FX series :-/
