Doom and Fallout 4 are coming to virtual reality

Doom and Fallout 4 are coming to virtual reality

Fallout 4 VR, coming in October, will be available for PC and compatible with the HTC Vive VR headset.

Fallout 4 VR has made its reappearance at Bethesda's E3 2017 event, and Bethesda have also announced that Doom will also be available in virtual reality. These links leave Siliconera. Protagonist Sebastian is clearly still losing his mind, there's a child singing an eerie version of a pop song and it's coming out on Friday, October 13.

Doom VFR was showed in all of its gory goodness we still don't know of the kind of setting to expect but we will surely be mowing down Hell's finest in VR. The creator of "Doom", John Carmack, famously went on to leave the studio he founded (id Software) to become CTO of Oculus VR.

Interested in learning more about Doom VFR?

If speeding around Doom's arenas wasn't enough of a thrill anyway, actually tearing around in virtual reality could be incredible, providing it doesn't make you want to barf. The game offers more than enough for fans to sink their teeth into, while it injects some purely-optional new ideas to keep in-step with modern games.

Everyone's very excited about the huge RPG Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year, and now Bethesda's just sweetened the deal. In 2017 the answer is "probably not", but if E3 was two months earlier would we still be saying the same after a 20 minute demo of a near complete Prey? Doom VFR functions in a similar manner; the trailer starts with a menacing "Welcome to the UAC", which then leads to the curious Bethesda player snooping around and exploring the ship.

Wolfenstein: The New Order surprised us all by actually being really good, so we're hoping that newly announced sequel The New Colossus can repeat the trick. After all, even when the games are not on this brand new hardware platform it takes them some time to finish everything.
