Mesquite, TX â€“ October 20, 2005 â€“ Christmas comes early for DOOMÂ® fans thanks to id Softwareâ„¢ and Activision, Incâ€™s (Nasdaq: ATVI) release of two all-new multiplayer maps for DOOM 3Â® for the XboxÂ® video game system from Microsoft. The new, exclusive levels titled Communications and Surface are readily available for download via Xbox Liveâ„¢ and are sponsored by the newly released DOOM 3: Resurrection of Evilâ„¢ for the Xbox.

Communications â€“ 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 â€“ 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 Evilâ„¢ 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.
