In case the idea of being able to play Fallout 4 in virtual reality (VR) wasn’t enough, not to worry because you’ll now be able to experience another Bethesda game in VR, and that comes in the form of DOOM. Announced during E3 2017 as DOOM: VFR, this basically puts players right in the center of the action.
Now given that DOOM is considerably a lot more frenetic and scary compared to Fallout 4, this will be an entirely different experience for games. Bethesda’s description of the game reads, “In DOOM: VFR, the demons from Hell have wiped out everyone inside the UAC’s Martian research facility – except you. As the last known human survivor, you have to restore operational stability and stop the demonic invasion.”
According to Robert Duffy, CTO at id Software, “Developing a DOOM game specifically for virtual reality has provided an exciting opportunity to not only surround players with the world of DOOM like never before, but also let them experience and explore the UAC and Hell in new ways, playing as new characters with totally unique tools and abilities.”
Unfortunately a release date has yet to be set but it is expected to drop later this year where it will be available on both the PlayStation VR and the HTC Vive platforms. In the meantime you can check out the reveal trailer above.
