That would be insane, and would mean a complete dismantling of id's creative production.
Actually, it was rumored (a week or so after Rage was released) that Id was stripped of whatever creative independence it had left.

Looks like Alan Wake meets Gears of War.

Though I don't doubt the veracity of the pictures, I do doubt that id/Bethesda would cancel the next entry in id's only remaining powerhouse franchise.

can mod update title that Bethesda said it's NOT canceled in response to this? thanks.
I agree, but I think it was Nirolak who said recently to send a mod a PM to get this done instead of posting in the thread where they might not see it.

I also remember some senior designer on Doom 4 left and became the senior designer on Aliens: Colonial Marines at Gearbox...or was it the other way around?

I don't speak Korean anymore, but hey, why not.

정식버젼의 스샷은 아니며 퇴사한 디렉터가 단편적으로 올린 포트폴리오라고 합니다.

제목에 "둠"을 사용하는 것 또한 가제라고 하며 정식으로 발매된 후에는 어떻게 바뀔지 미지수입니다.

레이지와 상당히 유사한 그래픽 분위기를 풍기는 것이 왠지 이번에도 그래픽적 문제를 일으킬지 두렵기도 합니다.

둠의 배경은 항상 우주였는데 이번에는 지구를 배경으로 하는 듯이 보이기도 합니다.

PC를 포함한 XBOX360, PS 3로 모두 발매되고 레이지와는 다르게 30프레임으로 구동되는 대신(PC는 아마도 60프레임?)에

과거 둠의 대량학살을 위주로 한 수십마리 몬스터가 화면에 등장하는 것을 목표로 개발 중이라고 합니다.
"Not official. It's a portfolio uploaded piece-by-piece by the ex-director.

The title being used is "Doom," but it could change, don't know what's official and what could be changed later on.

The atmosphere is very similar to Rage, so the fear is that the graphics will raise some problems later on.

Doom's background was always space, but this time, it appears to be on Earth.

PC and XBOX360, PS3 are being targeted, unlike Rage it'll be locked at 30 fps (PC version is perhaps 60 frames?)

The plan is to have lots of monsters from past Doom games appear in the game."

What the F people ?

I see amazing shoots i'm wow and people are like. Looks ok. Looks like RAGE. Uh not good looking..

Care to explain ? To less concrast for you ? Water is not moving on pictures ? Seriously. From this shoots this can be on par with metro 2033 or better (scale) with a lot of diffrent textures. And still those shoots are taken when game is still developed (???)

I don't care about doom at all but underscoring something looking amazing is not cool with me :)
looks like miles of invisible walls, set pieces and scripted garbage. it looks like total trash

I like this shot a lot. Mainly due to the ashes on a technical aspect. It would be cool to walk/run and have the ashes rise and disperse on screen, or having the gun filled with ashes in real-time, etc. I think it would make for a cool design.

Is there a game that does this in a similar way at least?

The visuals aren't technically impressive for sure, but I actually dig the concept of having it set on Earth, especially if they were intending to go for epic set pieces that have portals to Hell tearing landscapes apart as you play through... at least that's the direction some of these screenshots seem to indicate

These shots look amazing imo in terms of atmosphere:







I was really hyped for this game I hope it's not cancelled. But I lol'd @ this post on 4chan.
How do these graphics look like shit? Please, someone explain this to me. These look above average to incredible. The first one especially composition/color wise almost looks like a painting.

What in the fuck? How the hell can you even discern this in the slightest??
I've never played a Doom in my life, nor am I even that much of an fps fan, but some of the exaggerated bullshit is making my head spin, holy hell.

Wasn't Rage 60fps though?

I'm pretty sure they are going the opposite direction with Doom 4, dropping it down to 30fps in order to have better graphics.

Oh, so it's probably the opposite then. So out of practice that it was hard to figure out what they were saying at times.

You are correct. Rage is 60, while Doom will be 30 unless you own a PC, I hope.

With as long as ID takes to put out games, I'm shocked this isn't just being held back for next gen.

Interesting screens. Can't really imagine DOOM being on Earth (if that's not a terraformed Mars or something.) but I'm really intrigued.

Still trying to decide where to aim my speculation:

-disgruntled ex-employee wants to leak assets of soon-to-be-shown game
-disgruntled employee hears wind of cancellation rumours and layoffs, leaks assets

This games going to fucking suck so much. Those screens though... Really talented environment artists working on this game.

Some of the screens looks really awesome and promising while a few others just look bad. A lot of potential there though so hopefully it isn't cancelled.

It's fucking hilarious watching people get pissy about the possibility of the game being set on Earth and being somehow completely oblivious to Doom II's plot and setting.

I know why y'all are mad, it's just funny.

I personally thought Rage was visually pretty despite the static lighting due to the work of the artists. It just tended to look colorful and attractive, with some oddities while in motion due to the static nature and some pop-in at times (though I never had it nearly to the extent some others did).

Rage is like opposite-id on a tech/art level. Usually their games are known for their rich tech, with their art being almost besides the point other than some memorable enemy models (and Quake 1's Lovecraft-inspired atmosphere). Still it's impressive to get a game running at 60 FPS on consoles in the first place, especially one with lots of action and fairly large 3D environments.

That sure is some generic art design. I'm glad it's not canned but I expect more impressive art in the full version.

I am too young (24) to really remember the finer details of DOOMII. :c

I remember playing it a lot as a young lad though. Probably a bad decision on my parents' part. Haha.

Yeah the Earth setting is definitely not an issue, but level design is a potential worry.

To be fair Doom II didn't really resemble Earth in the slightest.

Kind of weird that the full title isn't on the box, but it is Doom II: Hell on Earth. I remember my dad coming home after being gone a week for police training and giving this to my brother and I. No clue what made him decide to buy it for us, must have just seen it on sale somewhere. Don't think I'd be into video games if it weren't for this and Duke Nukem 3D.

Ore-Gone.. not Ory-Gone.
Wow, tough crowd. Those screens look like a game I want to play. Love post-apocalyptic worlds and if those are legit early screens it looks promising.

..but then again someone posts this like it doesn't look just stupid:


I'm still waiting for doom to look like this:


Do not want that screen shot to be Doom 4. I can still go back and play the old games, I want them to take things to the next level. That thing is corny as fuck.

I think it's that outside that one shot of the vortex in the sky, most of these shots might as well be from any disaster/war/alien invasion movie. Nothing "Hellish" about them. Obviously later parts would ramp that up, but at this point I'm tired of seeing destroyed modern cityscapes with burnt out cars, garbage in alleyways, and convenient semi trailers and rubble blocking off streets.
