Doom 3 Source Code Released

Posted on November 23, 2011 AT 06:09am

THE BUZZ: id Software has released the official source code of Doom 3 to the general public.

There was a slight delay due to a legal issues involving a piece of technology in the game known as “Carmack’s Reverse” which is used for rendering shadows. This piece of code was developed by several programmers and Carmack had to rewrite the code before it could be released. The source code can be found here.

EGM’s TAKE: Fancy doing some crazy Doom 3 mods? Then now is the time.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
