A Mac iteration of id Software's Doom 3 is under development.

Amazon.com is accepting pre-orders. The game will be released in the US on February 28, 2005. The UK price is expected to be £39.99 and Aspyr are working towards the same release date here.

The Doom saga continues with an epic clash against pure evil. The ruins of an ancient Martian civilization have unlocked the secrets to teleportation, and the UAC will stop at nothing to harness this world-altering technology. As part of a marine detachment sent to protect the facility, your duty seemed simple enough… until the invasion.

Players can fight the forces of evil as a lone marine or battle other marines in team or deathmatch-based multiplayer modes.

Doom 3 is built on ID's revolutionary new 3D graphics engine. It includes "never before seen detail with real-time lighting and shadows, real-world physics, and killer AI And 5.1 surround sound".

According to Aspyr: "A dramatic storyline, pulse-pounding action, and incredible graphics, combine to produce the most frightening and gripping gaming experience ever created." It gets an 18+ rating for its "Blood and Gore and Intense Violence".
