Doom 3 VR Edition Announced for PlayStation VR
Doom 3 VR Edition will release on PlayStation VR on March 29, and will feature PS5 backward compatibility.
According to the post, the edition will feature both the full Doom 3 game and its DLCs: Resurrection of Evil and The Lost Mission. All aspects of gameplay will be retooled to fit cohesively with Sony's platform and include brand new improvements that allow players a wider range of movement. They will be able to "peer around corners, angling [their] shots with flashlight-mounted weapons using motion controls."
Additionally, the game will feature a few new abilities such as a 180-degree quick turn, the ability to view their stats with and simple wrist gesture.
"Uncover the secrets of the UAC’s unholy experiments, encounter uncanny monstrosities in claustrophobic environments, and wield an arsenal of iconic (and even otherworldly) weaponry with new textures, shaders and sound effects as you survive against the forces of Hell across over 15 hours of heart-stopping action." Wilhelm wrote.
Players are invited to "take [their] Aim controller in hand, put on [their] PS VR headset, and step into the armored boots of The Doom Marine."
