Speaking at QuakeCon today, John Carmack said that Doom 4’s multiplayer aspects would be in excess of those from previous disc-based iterations in the company’s shooter franchises, but would fall short of the upcoming free-to-play Quake 3 close, Quake Live.
“[Doom 4 multiplayer] will not be as good of a multiplayer as Quake Live is, but it should still be good, and we will intend it to be better than Doom 3 or Quake 4 multiplayer,” he said.
He didn’t quantify exactly what he meant by the statement – whether “better” means more modes, levels, etc – but it’s good news nonetheless. Hooplah.
