release of two all-new multiplayer maps for DOOM 3® for the Xbox® video game

Communications – A receiving area warehouse
providing storage and distribution for the Communication sector on Mars,
Communications is home to long corridors and dark corners, and is perfect for
surprising enemy players from the shadows or taking them out head-on, so gamers
will have to keep on their toes to survive in this dangerous environment.
Surface – A lonely section of the Mars UAC base
left exposed to the elements of the Martian environment, Surface is a
multi-tiered industrial yard centered between two external gates, where a vast
amount of pipes and platforms criss-cross over a large section of the Martian
surface, helping any player bring death from above. Players must be quick, agile
and skilled at shooting on the fly to win.
Although multiplayer gaming is not compatible
between both titles, the Communications and Surface multiplayer maps are just
two of seven all-new fast-paced multiplayer maps included in the newly released
DOOM 3: Resurrection of Evil™ for Xbox. Co-developed by Nerve Software and id
Software, DOOM 3: Resurrection of Evil for Xbox is currently available at retail
outlets nationwide for a suggested retail price of $29.99.
