Team Future has released the first episode of its brand new mod for Doom 3, Phobos. The team has upped the action, speed and gore, but not to the extreme lengths seen in the new Doom game, and built levels meant for exploration, progression and environmental puzzles.
According to the team, the aforementioned level design philosophies are the main quality differences between Phobos – which is said to be closer to games like Half-Life or Dark Forces/Jedi Knight in spirit – and Classic Doom or other mods that simply focus on action or gore.
Phobos takes place during the events of the original game and in the first episode, you wake up inside a repurposed apartment in Mars City.
“You do not recall how you got there or any specifics about your person. You soon meet Samantha Miles, an agent of a sketchy world-wide conglomerate, who claims to know you. While she helps you with your identity, you aide her in the quest to find a long lost friend and missing agent. When the original events of Doom 3 unfold, the two of you must scramble for safety while still tracking down the missing agent and your identity.”

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
