Aspyr Announces DOOM 3 For Mac
8:00 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Aspyr Media has announced that it will be bringing id Software's critically acclaimed first-person shooter, DOOM 3, to the Macintosh platform. The game is currently under co-development for Macintosh by id Software and Aspyr Media and will be published by Aspyr Media. Although a ship date hasn't been officially announced, our sources indicate that Aspyr will aim to ship it by February 2005, but don't be surprised if it ends up shipping earlier than that.

Here's more from the official press release:

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.

Here are the preliminary system requirements:
• Mac OS X 10.3.6 or later
• PowerPC G5 1.5 GHz or faster
• 384MB RAM (512MB recommended)
• 2.2 GB free disk space
• ATI Radeon 8500/nVidia GeForce 3 or better
• 32MB of Video Ram (VRAM)
• DVD drive required to install and play
IMG has posted a first-look sneak preview of the game, for those unfamiliar with the title. Be on the lookout for more hands-on previews of the game on IMG in the future.

The IMG Store has also begun to take pre-orders for DOOM 3. It is available for $49.95.
