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."

31. This.... is a money grab Aug 4, 2012, 09:31 Shataan
 
"Well yes, VR still has all the problems of being gimmicky and useless, but cool."

The idea of what it COULD be is cool. What we WISH it COULD be. But I think this is gonna be J Carmacks own virtual money grab. We haven`t seen any science tech news about how new HMD displays are hitting the market and how hi rez they are etc etc etc.

"With an incredibly wide field of view, high resolution display"

I await the reviews. Cause if it is ultrawide, and actually hi rez, how are they gonna keep the costs down? Gotta love that marketing. ;p

So John is gonna pass off HIS new redesigned just for DOOM IVs low rez HMD screens. And of course every DOOM Wad in the world is gonna buy into this. Cause John is Gawd afterall.

Stayed tuned for the new VR Ripoff.... round 2.
