Doom 3: VR Edition Coming to PS VR March 29th
Remember earlier in the year when we said a fully licensed VR version of Doom 3 wasn’t likely to happen? Well, it turns out that’s not the case. While it was possible to play the game in VR, so long as you had an official copy of it and transferred files over to your Quest headset, we now have official confirmation that a proper VR version of Doom 3 is coming very soon.
Bethesda recently announced that Doom 3: VR Edition will be coming to PlayStation VR on March 29th. This version will include the full game and the expansion packs. According to a press release, the game will be compatible on both the PS4 and PS5.
Other features include:
THE COMPLETE DOOM 3 EXPERIENCE ON PSVR
DOOM 3: VR Edition is the complete package of the acclaimed action-horror shooter transformed into an immersive white-knuckle VR experience that spans DOOM 3 and both campaign expansions – Resurrection of Evil and The Lost Mission – for more than 15-hours of visceral gameplay.
AIM CONTROLLER SUPPORT
Take the powerful demon-killing arsenal into your own hands with full AIM controller support. Use the AIM controller’s precision to land the perfect headshot, easily check corners or blind fire from cover, and dodge attacks without pulling your finger off the trigger.
CLASSIC WEAPONS, ALL NEW LOOK AND SOUND
DOOM 3: VR Edition’s arsenal looks and sounds better than ever. Every weapon is fully realized in high resolution, with upgraded textures, shaders and visual effects. To complement their new look each weapon’s sound effects have been completely revamped to be louder and meaner. Ripping and tearing demons has never looked or felt this good.
VITALS AT A GLANCE
Keep instant tabs on your health, armor, and flashlight battery levels with a quick glance at the all-new wrist-mounted display, while ammo counts are now displayed directly on your weapons.
While it was overshadowed by the release of Doom 2016, Doom 3 is still something of a classic. It opted for a more horror FPS experience rather than the less terrifying, high-octane action shooter experience the franchise is mostly known for.
This new VR version of the classic title is something fans have been waiting a long time for. You can check out the announcement trailer to this “Classic reborn in VR” below.
