Doom3 News

July 27 2004

Two items of new today on the Doom3 front:

First, G4 TechTV's Icons show had a feature on Doom3. Shows the history of Doom3 and a bunch of new footage. Including the first image of the Cacodemon that I have seen. Download the video here.

Second, id and Creative Labs today announced that future versions of the Doom3 engine will support EAX ADVANCED HD Audio. Turns out the reason for this is Creative has a patent on a certain algorithm, which technique is used to do the shadowing in Doom3. id decided to make the deal instead of having to delay the game or go with new tech. Man, patents for things like algorithms is just wrong.
