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.Here are the preliminary system requirements:
“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.
