Bethesda and id Software unveiled their newest version of Doom at this year's QuakeCon. Only the attendees were able to see the actual gameplay footage of the re-envisioned rendition of the classic first-person shooter. Turns out, the QuakeCon goers will be the only outsiders to see Doom for a very, very, very long time to come.
Bethesda had id Software's executive producer Marty Stratton take to the stage at this year's QuakeCon to announce Doom. It's not called Doom 4, it doesn't have a catchy subtitle or some re-imagined take on the series that requires Doom X or Doom 2000 or Doom: Super Turbo Edition, it's just called Doom and it's going to be the original game made with today's technology.
Zenimax is rolling out their big event today called QuakeCon. The annual convention will allow gamers to witness new announcements and gameplay from popular titles under the Zenimax corporate umbrella in real-time, thanks to live-streaming taking place right now of QuakeCon 2014.

Bethesda recently announced that the software development toolkit for id Software's RAGE has been made available on Steam. When I first spotted the news I was hoping it was the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine SDK, because there's a huge part of me that really wants to see Max Payne 3 mods and so, I must admit, I report this news with a bit of a sullen heart.
Fifteen months after RAGE's launch, id Software is finally releasing new DLC for their shooter RAGE. Today publisher Bethesda announced an add-on called "The Scorchers" for all platforms.
Bethesda Softworks has released their HD remake of DOOM 3. DOOM 3: BFG Edition is now available throughout North America and Australia, and will hit Europe on the 19th.
Doom 3: BFG won't find a home on the Wii U and other sub-platforms is not because the system isn't powerful enough or the wannabe-iPad controller is inhibitory or anything like that. The main reason why id Software won't be porting the game over to the console is because they just don't have time. Bummer.
A new trailer was released showcasing what the original 1996 release of Quake from id Software would look like running on the id Tech 4 engine that powers Doom 3. While the whole thing looks cleaner and schmexier, there's still the fact that it's the original Quake just running in a much bigger and better engine.
