Here's the DOOM announcement:
If you flinched the first time you saw a
ravenous Pinky Demon charging at you in last year’s critically acclaimed DOOM,
wait till you get up close and even more personal with rampaging demons in DOOM:
VFR. Featured at Bethesda’s E3 2017 Showcase, DOOM: VFR is a new virtual reality
game from legendary developer id Software, coming this year to PlayStation VR
and VIVE platforms.
In DOOM: VFR, the demons from Hell have wiped out everyone inside the UAC’s
Martian research facility – except you. As the last known human survivor, you
have to restore operational stability and stop the demonic invasion. There’s
only one catch: you’re about to be slaughtered yourself. But thanks to a
top-secret UAC research program, your consciousness has been transferred to an
artificial intelligence matrix. Along with all kinds classic DOOM weaponry,
you’ll be armed with the ability to Teleport and Jet-Strafe so you can move fast
in combat and quickly close the distance between you and the demons, then blow
them to bloody bits with your Tele-frag ability. As an A.I. operative, you can
also transfer your consciousness to UAC devices and robots to solve puzzles and
gain access to new areas (including two never-before-seen sections of the UAC
Martian Research Facility).
“Developing a DOOM game specifically for virtual reality has provided an
exciting opportunity to not only surround players with the world of DOOM like
never before, but also let them experience and explore the UAC and Hell in new
ways, playing as new characters with totally unique tools and abilities,” says
Robert Duffy, CTO at id Software.
“Since the hallmark of any DOOM game is combat, we’ve made it our top priority
to ensure moving, shooting and killing demons with overwhelming force in virtual
reality is as brutal and rewarding as it is in the DOOM experience that fans
have been enjoying for the past year,” adds DOOM Game Director Marty Stratton.
With brutal combat from the studio that pioneered the first-person shooter genre
as well as modern VR, DOOM: VFR brings id Software’s trademark carnage to a
standalone VR game. See Mars and Hell from a new perspective, and lay waste to
an army of demonic foes in a definitive adventure custom built for PlayStation
VR and VIVE.
