Oh my god it happened again?? Looks like a Call of duty MW3 Graphics.

In other words, they are real but when they were leaked and ID saw that people didn't like what they saw, they quickly dismissed them as unofficial.

Did you really expect DOOM 4 to set the new graphical standard? Looks pretty normal considering it's most likely marketed towards consoles.
March 3, 2012 7:39:56 AM

not really doom is it.

Although I imagine Bethesda will release a nice (but buggy) game.
March 3, 2012 8:36:06 AM

The textures look even lower res than Rage.
March 3, 2012 9:04:45 AM

Oh god no, not idtech5.
Prebaked shadows(step backwords from DOOM3), no physics at all except on characters, and all textures up close look like half-life 1 thanks to carmack's megatexture crap... as seen in RAGE..

Someone has to tell him to stop living in the 90s...
March 3, 2012 9:07:49 AM

OHH! rage expansion! i can't wait! I will be standing outside the shops till it gets released! LOL ! NOT!

IDD! Carmack has become a money shark...we should know better than supporting him all the years he was not getting extremely rich...
March 3, 2012 9:45:49 AM

When I compare the amount of money I have paid iD to the hundreds of hours of gaming happiness I have received since the release of Knee Deep in the Dead I reckon I have got my moneys worth. The best game is the one that is fun to play imho.

If Doom's 4 story and plot writing is good, then I can forgive it's poor graphics. I'd rather prefer low graphics with great plot, than the other way around.

Why can't we have a FPS that isn't all doom and gloom and death with destruction.

More fun and family oriented... like candy land.
March 3, 2012 11:18:29 AM

These seem to be conceptual artwork, not in-game graphics.
March 3, 2012 11:38:44 AM

last chance for carmack, or he will lose all his credibility.
March 3, 2012 11:44:07 AM

Obviously another console-oriented game. Lot of beast blood on the floor and walls, instant action and easy profits.
March 3, 2012 12:29:48 PM

Man, this does look pretty lackluster. Gaming is actually devolving right now, I swear. Until the next-gen consoles come out we are not going to see any real progress.

I'm so sick of developers focusing on consoles.
March 3, 2012 12:55:38 PM

Lame guys dressed in dirty old cloth and lots of rubble. How exciting! Someone at iD likes to play in the dump.

Nothing will change. By that time, PC gaming is going to be on a whole new level, and everybody will be complaining about the consoles holding back the graphics..... again.
March 3, 2012 1:19:57 PM

If we see much more of this obvious focus on consoles I'll guarantee, that until things change, mid and in particular, high-end pc gfx cards are going to start taking a serious hit. I'm pretty certain that NVIDIA and AMD won't be too happy for their revenue outlook in this section of the PC market.
March 3, 2012 2:01:14 PM

Cant be a id software production, that actually looked like it had some textures not just blur like rage had!
March 3, 2012 2:05:42 PM

I could get with that. Caramel and Nougat splattered hallways. Rip open a skull with a chainsaw gun and marshmallow sauce pours out.
March 3, 2012 2:26:05 PM

Probably be another console focused game. Shame. Speculation of course. I really hope they dig back to their PC roots and gear doom 4 up for us PC owners.
March 3, 2012 2:28:55 PM

Hopefully Carmak has figured out how to make the textures not look like puree'd ass. I mean, Rage looked like crap, and it was almost 30 gigs. Skyrim looks better and has 10x the content and it's only 7 gigs.
March 3, 2012 2:34:25 PM

those building look like they're crafted out of frosting
March 3, 2012 2:52:45 PM

Does anyone have any experience making games? I am wondering if it's harder to make better models or the mechanics. I'm assuming the game mechanics and engine customizations or whatever take a lot more time, right?
March 3, 2012 3:46:51 PM

The release date for Doom 4 has been pushed back due to the "xbox 720". These images
were of an older alpha versions of doom 4 from a certain disgruntled employee fired for
his inaptitude in developing Rage.
March 3, 2012 4:43:51 PM

You guys don't seem to realize that without developers developing for consoles, they would have about 15% as much funding. Yes, that's right, only about 15% of sales are to pc. So stop compaining and be grateful they don't ditch pc because of all the ungrateful pirates.

Linux user here hopefully waiting :) 
March 3, 2012 8:20:36 PM

Some of these scenes remind me of that game a few years back called Hellgate: London.

a postal 2 style game, you dont have to kill anyone, but wow is it fun when you do.
i always wanted a fantacy set fps, in a kids style graphics, but sadistic adult amount of blood and gore.

and whats wrong with pre rendered shadows... just curious, because the way im thinking, is this

an area is shaded, because the sun wont move ever, it will always be shaded, if something comes in contact with this area, it will get a real ish looking shadow, but the shadow you see is fake, like a building that will never move...

and if my thinking above is correct, than whats wrong with it? people have no idea how much of a gpu hit shadows make a game take, if you can fake it, than fake it, why take up additional resources for somethhing very minor most people wont notice, and yea, people who require a graphics engine that forces you to have 4 700$ cards to even render it at 30fps are a VAST minority

I don't know what all the negativity was about with RAGE. I played it and enjoyed it. I especially liked the character models. id Software has always slacked in that area but this time around, they were extremely impressive. The detail and animations were awesome.

Those saying Skyrim looked better - it did close up, but not at distance which is exactly what Carmack said it would be. Also, the characters in Skyrim were horribly animated and awkward. Rage's were 10x more realistic and more detailed. Mouth animations for talking looked awesome. Skyrim's were like robots.
March 4, 2012 6:16:29 PM

I hope the next version of Doom has simple play mechanics like the version 1 and 2 did (Serious Sam like game play). The first two Doom games were the best.. Amazing graphics are pointless if the game play sucks..
March 4, 2012 10:16:32 PM

frostbite 2 plz
March 5, 2012 12:33:01 AM

Well, those look like console graphics. They need to build it with the PC in mind and then downgrade for the consoles.

If it's going to be ported to the PC from the consoles, then I probably won't get into it. First Crysis and now Doom?! Fail.

some one needs totell him to pul his head out of his a--. carkmack talks up every one of his games every time , and the end product is never any where near as revolutionary as he made them out to be . doom3 .. was same ol same ol game play wise , and by the time it came out it had already been beaten graphically by a game that came out two years before it (far cry).

the enter Rage ... i don't need to repeat what every one knows already again "yawn"

i could really care less about doom 4 at this point.

Er,, i agree that when carmack saw theese photos leaked and gamers responses were negative he did claim them to be unofficial though they were meant to be in D4. Just my concerns....If the graphics are less than RAGE's (because he said it would look 10times better than RAGE) and if the storyline is too short and sucks balls. Other than that im highly anticipating this game. Huge fan of Doom3.
March 5, 2012 2:58:20 PM

Here is my scenario for the next 10-20 ffs games, end of earth, you or your group has to defend us from invading aliens or zombies from above or below, has many weapon choices and new things to shoot at, I just described about 10 top selling shooters, now make a new one to add to the list.

I don't know why people are complaining about graphics. These look more like concept images rather than finished content. Not only that, but I couldn't give less of a damn about the graphics anyways as long as the game is fun. Do you think people have still been playing Doom for 18 years for the graphics?

I just want this game to have the fast paced action of the original Dooms. They can have their story too, but as long as it's fun I don't care what it looks like (Unless it's dirt ass ugly, which if these are finished screens this is not a dirt ass ugly game). Really people, whether this is being aimed for consoles or PC or whatever, fuck the graphics. Graphics Whores are not real gamers int he least bit and should go somewhere else and play your Call of Duty games or Battlefield, or whatever the hell just came out with "Ultra-Real Uber Graphics".
March 5, 2012 5:15:15 PM

Looks fantastic, can't wait!
March 5, 2012 6:54:44 PM

Don't use console BS as an excuse. These graphics are horrendous. Metroid Prime on the gamecube had better textures than these. That game was from 2001!

John Carmack is one of the best computer programmers in the world, and he did the graphics for one of the best games ever made Doom, Which inspired your crap MW3 and Skyrim.
April 9, 2012 9:22:18 AM

people are missing the point that this is still in production! Rage was awesome and the graphics were the best id seen for a while not since gran turismo 5 ;)

:/  I hope that I.D will go back to DOOM I/II/64 gameplay, but with 'proper' aiming in the new FPS's. Also, make a storyline to it too, although there is a storyline to it anyay....also, new demons/zombies on DOOM 4? :/
