In February 2012, 170 Doom 4 beta images leaked onto the internet. The images are from various points in development, showing some unfinished environments, concepts, and character models. The environments appear to be mainly open urban areas, with a large scale “hell on earth” scenario.

iD design director Matthew Hooper responded to the leak on Twitter:

“Those images have nothing to do with what you’re gonna see in Doom 4. When we officially show things you’ll see awesome.”

Here is the link to the first batch of images:

    Nice, I thought they were fakes. But nice to see they are real. Now I want to see some current footage, screenshots or wahtever.

    Wikipedia says Doom 4 is using the same id Tech 5 engine used in Rage, which would explain why these screenshots look like they came out of Rage. I really hope id gives us something new and fresh with Doom 4, and not just rush it out the door as a glorified Rage expansion pack. I remember when a new Doom game used to be a monumental event back in the day… not any more, sadly.

    “The screenshots show a large scale “hell on earth” scenario that was never displayed in previous games.”

    Seriously ?
    And what happened in DOOM 2: Hell on earth ?

    “The environments appear to be more open than previous games. The Doom franchise is known for claustrophobic corridor shooting”

    Only DOOM 3 had “claustrophobic corridor shooting”…

    Unfortunately, none of this is relevant anymore as I heard they have restarted the project entirely, means thats another 4 years I bet.

    Actually, Michael Finley, this still is relevant. This about what the beta was and Matthew Hooper said that “those images have nothing to do with what you’re gonna see in Doom 4. When we officially show things you’ll see awesome.” So yes this article is relevant and helps people who have looked at the progress or have never heard of Doom 4, to look at it. Thanks.
