Doom 4 won't be a 're-skinned' Rage, says id photo



Rage continues to look terrific, and also continues to be id's main focus, at least in terms of where the studio's marketing muscle is at. Following a few brief statements about Doom 4, which pin it as not a direct sequel to Doom 3 but not a series reboot either, Eurogamer has gotten new info.

id's design director Matt Hooper says the team on Doom 4 is going in its "own direction. They're doing something Doom fans will be happy with. We're separated enough to be able to go our own ways, but still connected where we can help facilitate both those directions."

Continuing, Hooper explains that the game "is distinct enough. It would be dangerous ... We don't want to make a re-skinned Doom [with Rage] and then Doom 4 be a re-skinned Rage. That would be bad."

"It's worked out really nicely where we have enough connection to take advantage of things like technology and talent, but enough separation to be able to go in a unique direction."

Upcoming Doom sneak peek is only meant for QuakeCon attendees

The teaser trailer for Doom (4) didn't do much for me, but I'm looking forward to the long-awaited reveal. We'll see more of the game at this year's QuakeCon, set to take place in Dallas, Texas from July 17 - 20, or so I thou...more

Check out this trip down memory lane with id Software

I was barely old enough to game in 1993, let alone take trips to id Software for office tours. That's why I'm so jealous of one Dan Linton, owner of a wildly successful BBS known as Software Creation, who took a trip down to...more
