DOOM 3, the blockbuster hit from id Software, has gone gold for Mac and is scheduled to begin shipping Monday, March 14. The game was developed for Macintosh by id Software and Aspyr Studios.

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’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.

The game is rated “M” for “Mature” by the ESRB and is available for preorder at http://www.aspyr.com for $49.99. For more information, fans can visit http://www.doom3.com or http://www.aspyr.com/games.php/mac/d3/.
