Unlike the fast and fluid movement of the main game, Doom VFR will feature node-based movement. Playstation VR and HTC Vive owners can see the hellish demons up close and personal when it releases later this year.
Also revealed was Fallout 4 VR. While Doom VFR is a standalone experience, Fallout 4‘s virtual reality experience is a full version of Bethesda’s open-world game. The trailer showcases players moving freely across the wasteland as they decorate settlements and fight against the dangers that inhabit it. The game won’t be using a teleportation system, and will instead let players walk or run across the landscape just as they would in the regular game.
Now everything is the same as in Fallout 4, however. Players will enjoy new combat, crafting, and building systems that have been reworked for the HTC Vive. Each and every location, character, and quest is fully playable in VR. Fallout 4 VR comes to PC this October.
While Bethesda did show off trailers for each game, the company didn’t go on-stage to provide additional details, such as the length of any new content, the price, or a full roster of compatible VR platforms. That information, it seems, will come out sometime after E3.
