Activision and id Software have today announced that Doom 3's deathmatch mode will be playable for the first time at QuakeCon 2003 in Dallas next month. The annual multiplayer gaming event is being held at the Adam's Mark Hotel from August 14-17.

"What better way to celebrate QuakeCon than to unveil to our fans a preview of Doom 3 multiplayer," said Todd Hollenshead, CEO, id Software. "While everyone knows that Doom 3 is the most terrifying and scary single-player experience ever created, multiplayer delivers the intense competitive action that our fans can count on. It's a natural to debut the Doom 3 multiplayer experience at QuakeCon, the world's preeminent fan-based multiplayer gaming event."

QuakeCon attendees will get to play four-player deathmatch games on a level codeveloped by id Software and UK-based Splash Damage.
