Doom Is Coming To The Arcade

Barcelona – September 27, 2006 – Turn back the clocks and crank-up the action, id Software’s DOOM® is available now for the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system by download from Microsoft’s Xbox Live® Arcade. The game, which premiered today at X06 in Barcelona, brings legendary DOOM mayhem to gamers, who for the first time ever can relive the classic demon-blasting fragfest in both single-player and 2-4-player co-operative and Deathmatch modes over Xbox Live or splitscreen. DOOM for Xbox Live Arcade is available in most worldwide markets for 800 points and is rated “M” for Mature by the ESRB. Originally created by id Software, and developed for Xbox Live Arcade by Nerve Software, DOOM delivers all the original nightmarish demons and hellish zombies in enhanced graphics supporting High-Definition displays along with 5.1 Surround Sound. Gamers can also unlock a full array of achievements and access leaderboards featuring match-making capabilities for the ultimate Deathmatch competition. “Haul out the BFG and fire-up the chainsaw, DOOM delivers the heart-pounding thrills of the original experience to a new generation,” said Todd Hollenshead, CEO, id Software. “Now with Xbox Live Arcade, gamers can take the classic action online for over-the-top Deathmatch or team-up in co-op play.” Originally released in 1993, DOOM introduced millions to the terrifying and exhilarating excitement of first-person action. As a lone marine stranded on Mars when a military experiment literally goes to hell, gamers must face off against an army of demons and un-dead marines using the BFG 9000 and an arsenal of classic weapons in order to survive this deadly assault and save mankind from certain extinction. DOOM for Xbox Live Arcade delivers all the era-inspiring action of Ultimate DOOM including all four original episodes in one complete Xbox Live experience.
