Doom 4 Will Support Oculus Rift

Doom 4 will support the Oculus Rift, John Carmack told Polygon at QuakeCon, saying the once he finishes adding support for the just kickstarted VR headset (which has already surpassed its funding goals) to the upcoming Doom 3: BFG Edition he will get to adding it to the next installment in the shooter series. "I'm excited for once Doom 3 ships, and gets out there, I'll put all this stuff into the Doom 4 platform, which will be nice to take our current top-of-the-line stuff and have that in virtual reality," id Software's Technical Director tells them. "I'm looking forward to doing that."

We had VR headsets back in '99 but they didn't take off then either, I guess we'll see take 2.

Right and tech is now way better and there are always leasons learned. Just having a much larger field of view with or without glasses huge. We also have bendable LCD on it's way. So wrap around monitors are coming. If this doesn't work that might, that will only be screen and nothing else, which is where I think this should start. Too much awkward at once means too much.

I'm not one for needing the total VR experience. Head-tracking, standing, legs and arms being recorded... that is where those VR stations failed for me. Trying to do way too much too early on. Just full vision of the screen. Otherwise it gets Kineticky for me.
