What’s new in Doom 3: VR Edition
In a message posted on PlayStation Blog, the company explains that the game had to be adapted to virtual reality to make it possible. The weapons will feature “new textures, shaders and sound effects” only available in this edition. It is indicated that we can make use of the Aim Controller, the accessory that integrates a PlayStation Move controller and the controller in the form of a rifle.
In addition to being able to experience the game in a unique format so far, we will have the possibility of making 180 degree turns to reach the demons faster and a renewed interface.
It is not the first time that the license makes the leap to virtual reality. In 2017 we saw the launch of Doom VFR, a series of missions from Doom 2016 carried over to VR devices. In our analysis we said that it is “frantic, wild” and that “it still maintains all the original essence”. “It seems a bit demanding for novice VR users, but the development of the missions makes us get into the game very quickly,” we explained.

PlayStation continues to bet heavily on the virtual reality market. We recently learned of his intention to launch the next generation of PSVR, which will feature outstanding new features that will make it a “dramatic leap” between one and the other. Resolution, draw distance and response will be improved. Unlike the current model, it will be connected using a single cable. Simple installation.
