DOOM VFR Announced; Coming To PlayStation VR And HTC Vive
Following last year's release of DOOM, fans of the classic series created by id Software will soon be able to come back to the series' brutal and unforgiving world with DOOM VFR.
DOOM VFR, which will mark the series' VR debut, has been announced during Bethesda's E3 2017 press conference with a brand new trailer. Not much has been said about the game other than the fact that it will be available for PlayStation VR and HTC Vive on a yet to be confirmed release date.
If you flinched the first time you saw a meaty Mancubus charging at you in last year’s critically acclaimed DOOM, wait till you get up close and even more personal with rampaging demons in DOOM VFR. Revealed at Bethesda’s E3 2017 Showcase, DOOM VFR is a new virtual reality game from legendary developer id Software, coming to PlayStation VR and VIVE platforms.
Last year's DOOM is one of the best FPS released in 2016, mostly thanks to its single player campaign. The game also comes with a multiplayer mode which has been expanded after release with additional content.
So, is DOOM worthwhile? Well, if you’re the kind of gamer who wants a brilliant 10-14 hour campaign where you’ll shoot and listen to metal breakdowns, then yes, 100%. If you’re the kind of gamer that didn’t even consider the single player when looking at this game, then no. DOOM in 2016 is possibly the best single player experience you can have with an FPS on modern consoles and for that alone, it is deserving of praise. Oh, and also you don’t aim down sights. That’s probably the best part of it all, actually.
DOOM VFR launches on a yet to be confirmed release date on PlayStation VR and HTC Vive.
