DOOM 3 Invasion Coming to Macintosh
AUSTIN, Texas --(Business Wire)-- Nov. 3, 2004 -- Aspyr Media Inc. announced today that it is bringing id Software's critically acclaimed blockbuster hit, DOOM 3(TM), to Macintosh. The Associated Press has called DOOM 3, "One of the scariest games ever made." Computer Gaming World and Maxim both awarded DOOM 3 their highest rating, "Five out of Five Stars," and TIME magazine says DOOM 3 is "too lifelike for comfort." The game is under development for Macintosh by id Software, and will be published by Aspyr Media Inc.
The ruins of an ancient Martian civilization have unlocked the secrets to teleportation and the Union Aerospace Corporation will stop at nothing to harness this world-altering technology. As part of a Marine detachment sent to protect the facility, your duty seemed simple enough -- until the invasion. Now, in an epic clash against pure evil you must fight to understand who is with you, who is against you, and what must be done to stop this nightmare from reaching earth.
"DOOM 3 has instantly become a must-have title for any game fan, and we're thrilled to be working with Aspyr in bringing this landmark game to the Macintosh," said Todd Hollenshead, CEO, id Software. "Now, Macintosh owners can experience for themselves the unparalleled combination of bleeding-edge technology and edge-of-your-seat gameplay that critics and fans are raving about."
DOOM 3's dramatic storyline, pulse-pounding action, and incredible graphics, combine to produce the most frightening and gripping gaming experience ever created. DOOM 3 utilizes id Software's revolutionary new 3D graphics engine to create disturbingly realistic graphics, with never-before-seen detail and real-time lighting. Players can fight the forces of evil as a lone Marine or battle other Marines in team or deathmatch-based multiplayer modes.
