Here’s the official word on the Doom Marine’s return to the hellscape via press release.
Complete and Enhanced DOOM 3 Experience
Featuring both DOOM 3 and its expansions – Resurrection of Evil and The Lost Mission – DOOM 3: VR edition retools id Software’s horror-action classic for PSVR technology. Uncover the truth behind the UAC’s dark experiments, fight unholy creatures in terrifying environments and wield an arsenal of iconic weaponry with new textures, shaders and sound effects as you survive against the forces of Hell across over 15 hours of heart-stopping action.
Refined for VR
Immerse yourself deeper in the terror thanks to all-new enhancements for virtual reality, including head tracking to peer around corners, angling shots with your flashlight-mounted weapons, 180-degree quick-turn functionality to catch sneaking demons in their tracks and a wrist-mounted display to track your health, armor and ammo. Combined with the original DOOM 3’s critically acclaimed action-horror gameplay, virtual reality fans are in for one Hell of an experience with DOOM 3: VR Edition.
First released for PC back in 2004, Doom 3 helped propel the franchise’s popularity forward — which is now soaring with the latest release in Doom Eternal, which made $450 million in revenue in its first nine months of release.
Doom 3 VR will be released this March 29 for the PSVR!
