Doom 3

What is Doom 3?

Doom 3 is a science fiction horror video game developed by id Software and published by Activision. The game is a reboot of the Doom franchise, disregarding the storylines of the previous Doom video games. Doom 3 is a story-driven action game played from a first-person perspective. As with previous Doom games, the main objective is to successfully pass through its levels, defeating a variety of enemy characters intent on killing the player's character. Doom 3's more story-centred approach, however, means that the player often encounters friendly non-player characters, who provide key plot information, objectives and inventory items.


The most used version is 1.00.0000, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is Doom3.exe. The software installer includes 44 files and is usually about 1.45 MB (1,524,836 bytes).
