- Mod Packs For Doom3 - Out Already!

I've just stumbled across this one over at 3DGPU. They've sourced a section over at BoomTown with a compiled listing of already working mods for Doom III. Seven of the best they could find in fact, sheesh... talk about quick to work! Without any doubt, we'll be seeing a hell of a lot more popping up on a regular basis but these should keep you entertained for now.

 

Assuming the CO-OP mode works nicely, i'm sure a lot of you will be enjoying yourselves at the next LAN session with your mates! Each of the mods are listed below :-

 

CO-OP Play - Play the singleplayer with your friends.
32 Player server - Start a server with 32 gamers.
Ultra Extreme Quality - Adds more shadows to the game.
Gore - We know you want more blood.
Rocket DM - Deathmatch with rockets only.
Fightclub - Fight with your fists and flashlight.
Chainsaw Only - Well you know what this one does.
