Great news for everyone as John Carmack informed us – via its Twitter account – that Doom 3’s source code is packaged and fully tested. iD Software is now waiting on the final lawyer clearance and the package will then get released. This basically means that the source code will come out in the coming days and we can’t wait to see what the modding and indie developers will come up with.
As Carmack tweeted:
“doom 3 source is packaged and tested, we are waiting on final lawyer clearance for release.”
In case you were unaware of, the source code is given for free. Yeap, everyone can download it and create whatever they want to. Way to go iD, that’s the spirit!
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
