DOOM 3 goes ‘gold’ for Apple’s Mac OS X, to ship March 14

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 for $49.99. For more information, fans can visit or

  2. Perfect. My new dual 2.5 G5 with 23″ Cinema Screen should be here by next Friday! Hooray! I can play new games again! Should I feel bad for hoping that processor development slows down big time (as they seem to have). I mean, the Cell sounds amazing, but I can’t help hoping that it takes a few years to get here, and that Intel/AMD continue at their current rate of improvement (also called treading water). Let me get my money’s worth with this box unlike my 667 TiBook.

    MAW is “soon”. How do it know?

  3. You mean this game won’t run on my trusty SE? Darn.

    Does it seem we Earthlings are racist? I mean, Mars seems to cop a lot of flak over the years for harbouring nasty aliens. Glad I’m not a Martian! Those conniving, ugly murderers…..

  4. Well notatotalsucker, I am not a racist but those Martians have tried to invade this planet thousands of times as documented by countless movies, television shows and video games. They don’t play by the same rules we do, developing ray gun technology, abducting our farmers for anal probes and possibly re-directing meteorites our way. They look at our green and blue planet and think that they can just come here and take what is ours. Is it our fault that they live on a red rock and have to endure freezing temperatures? Should we just open up our doors and let them come here and take our jobs, our streets and our women? I think not!

    ID Software should be applauded for telling it how it is.
