GameSpy is running an introduction to the Doom3 expansion pack, Resurrection of Evil, due out April 5, 2005. That's right, in just over a month, not a year and a month.
"One of the most popular sections of DOOM 3 was the ancient civilization area introduced towards the end of the game, and that's basically where the expansion begins.
There's a short cutscene that sets the story up -- it's a few years later, and you're playing a different character sent in as part of a UAC team to investigate a strange signal coming from the old, now-abandoned base -- and things keep rolling from there. From what we've seen, it's doubtful that anyone will complain about Resurrection of Evil getting off to a slow start."
"The expansion begins when you find a strange artifact back in the UAC facility. There are three "Hunters" in the expansion -- bosses that track you in search of a strange alien artifact." I'm all aflutter!
