Bethesda has recently released Skyrim VR for PlayStation VR users which has gotten large amounts of positive feedback. On December 1st, they’ll be releasing DOOM VFR for HTC Vive and PSVR users.
In DOOM VFR you won’t be playing the Doom soldier that you may be accustomed to. Instead, we’ll be playing as a character named Dr. Peters who is a part of the BFG program.
For those of you unfamiliar with BFG, it’s a program in a research facility where they conduct some crazy tests. At the beginning of the game, you’ll see your conscious self floating while your body is being dismantled. Throughout the progress of the game you’ll be able to put your conscious body into robots and vehicles to take out the enemies.
Below is some gameplay from DOOM VFR.
In the video, you can see that you’ll be teleporting around instead of using locomotion mechanics. While many find this of hinderance in gameplay, Bethesda chose this option as it jells well with how Doom is played. Bethesda also explains that it’s not simply teleporting but something they call “Dash.” This movement isn’t instant teleportation but more of a rapid dash to the fixed location. Dash also allows you destroy your enemies as you can “telefrag” into their bodies and blow them up.
