While the original DOOM released back in the day might not have been particularly scary, its newer titles are, possibly thanks to the improved graphics and textures and the lessons and experiences gained over the years. So you can imagine that playing DOOM in VR will probably kick things up a notch.

Now if you’re the type that loves a good scare or just VR titles in general, you’ll be pleased to learn that Bethesda’s DOOM VFR is now available. The game was announced earlier this year during E3 2017 where Bethesda revealed that the title would be arriving for the likes of the PlayStation VR and the HTC Vive, so if you own either VR platform you can go ahead and take it for a spin.

This isn’t the first title that Bethesda is bringing to VR. So far they have released Skyrim VR for the PlayStation VR, and are also expected to bring the title onto the HTC Vive in 2018. There will also be Fallout 4 VR which will be released later this month, although it seems that it is currently an exclusive to the HTC Vive.

The play styles for the PlayStation VR and HTC Vive will be slightly different due to the different controllers used, but they should still offer an immersive experience, at least based on the trailers that we’ve seen so far.
