GameSpy: Can you give us any idea how much hard drive space everyone will need?
Todd Hollenshead: About 2 GB. Also, tell people to defrag their hard drive before they install!
GS: Will there eventually be a way for more than just four players to engage in a Doom 3 multiplayer game?
TH: That's just an artificial limit that we set. You are going to have to have a powerful server to have more than just four people playing on it. People's network connections are going to matter. Doom 3 is basically a broadband-only game. When you start adding clients, you're going to start adding traffic, and you're going to add latency and performance hits on the server. I have no doubt that one of the first mods for Doom 3 to come out will be eight-player Doom 3. But it's my guess that eight-player Doom 3 will be most effectively played on LAN servers.
IGNPC: Can we expect to see all of the same weapons in multiplayer that we'll see in single player?
Tim: Yeah except for the BFG. One thing we learned from Quake II is that people really don't like the BFG in deathmatch.
