[Phoronix] Doom 3 Source Code Published Under The GPL
The Doom 3 source-code -- based upon the id Tech 4 engine -- is now available as open-source software to the gaming community under the GNU GPL license.

Pushed onto GitHub is the Doom 3 source-code. This comes after John Carmack had to work-around Carmack's Reverse due to legal issues. The source drop is right in line with what we were expecting.

More details to come soon on the open-source drop of Doom 3, which will hopefully spark a new wave of more impressive free software games.

Note the game assets do not come with the code, so you cannot just build the entire game itself using this code.

Hoping to see good games coming out of this great engine.

And btw the ioDoom3 Project is set up too. iodoom3
 
Nice. I guess the community will enhance the game with lots of hd-textures and new weapons and all. Hopefully, I will finish the game this time. :)

Nope. The game assets are not the part of the source code release. They can all be recreated though.
Expect to see some quality OSS shooters though. Something in lines of Urban Terror powered by id Tech 4 engine maybe.

Isn't Hard Reset a quality indie shooter?

On topic: Really good to see this. Even though I am not a fan of FPS.

Urban Terror HD is already in alpha stages, built on ioquake 3 AFAIK.
