British fantasy author behind new Doom plot

Graham Joyce helping id out

Fantasy author Graham Joyce has been enlisted by id Software to help pen the story that will back Doom 4, the latest in the long running FPS series from John Carmack's outfit.

The British pen-smith is an award winning writer, although it is not clear the degree to which he will be involved in the game developer's new opus, Joyce offering: "I can say that ID have hired me to help develop the storyline potential."

Doom 4 is on the way to the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, and was first discussed earlier last year.
