It’s almost that time of the year that we’ve all been waiting for. No, I’m not talking about Christmas. I’m talking about the release of Doom VFR. Finally! So with the impending release of the VR version of the popular first-person shooter tomorrow, some news has come around about the 4 – 5 hour bloody demon massacre.
If you somehow haven’t heard, then you should know that Doom VFR, id Software’s upcoming VR title, is launching for HTC Vive and PSVR this Friday, December 1. It takes some of the content of the 2016 reboot and combines it with a whole new storyline and gameplay that’s been specifically tailored for virtual reality. The game supports both the Vive’s motion controllers and the Playstation VR’s Move controllers, as well as DualShock 4 controllers and PS Aim.
Now IGN has confirmed that the game will be getting two bonus levels, with maps from the original Doom game. Both the ‘Toxic Refinery’ and ‘Nuclear Plant’ maps will be playable in the classic low res magnificence that you’ll remember from almost two decades ago. The environment will look exactly like it did way back when, with all the same items, but the enemies will be from last year’s remastered version. According to IGN, the maps can be unlocked by playing through the main campaign.
So if you haven’t been feeling nostalgic around the holidays then this will certainly put you in the mood.
IGN also shared 4 minutes of gameplay from the two classic maps in the upcoming game and it looks pretty sweet. Just take note that while the video only shows teleportation, free movement, or ‘dash’ movement as the studio calls it, will also be an option throughout the game. Check out the video below:
Doom VFR is the second VR game to be released from Bethesda this year. Skyrim VR just recently launched for PSVR and is seeing a lot of success. The publisher will also release Fallout 4 VR later this month so if you’re a fan of the wastelands then be on the lookout for that one too.
