Bethesda Softworks Announces DOOM 3: VR Edition For PSVR

DOOM fans rejoice as you're getting a special VR experience on the PSVR. Today Bethesda Softworks announced DOOM 3: VR Edition. This is a pretty cool upgrade as you're getting the original version of the game, plus the expansions, reimagined as a VR experience with all of the chaos and horror that came with it the first time around. The graphics have gotten somewhat of an upgrade, and now you'll be using your head to check every corner as well as looking at your left arm for vitals. But it is every bit the gore-filled shooter it ever was. You can check out some screenshots of it below along with the brief trailer showing it off. The game will officially drop into PSVR on March 29th, 2021. Here's hoping it's successful enough for them to bring it to other VR platforms.
