The DOOM series has become one of the most popular first-person shooters ever released. First debuting in 1993, the franchise has sold over 10 million copies, firmly cementing it as the go-to action horror title for hardcore gamers everywhere. Now, PlayStation 4 gamers can get up close and personal with a range of demons in DOOM VFR. Virtual reality is a fast-growing gaming market and DOOM promises to provide the same thrills and spills that fans have come to expect from the genre, with the added terror of being right in the middle of all the action.For most VR shooter games, the player is tasked with standing still and hitting a range of different target. Thankfully, Bethesda, who also created the new Skyrim VR experience has rebuilt DOOM from the ground up, crafting an immersive game that is compatible with the PlayStation VR headset.

In DOOM VFR, players assume the role of the last survivor of a colony on Mars. After being destroyed, the survivor finds his consciousness has been uploaded to an artificial network. Gamers must then tackle the series’ iconic villains and restore the facility’s operations, using a selection of different devices and weapons to help in the effort.
As is usual for the VR genre, movement is a scooting motion in which players use the directional buttons or d-pad to move in whichever direction they choose, a few feet at a time. This can be done quickly or slowly depending on how far you want to shift in each movement.

Elsewhere, fans of the franchise’s guts and gore will be pleased to learn that Bethesda hasn’t dialled things down in this DOOM VR. Seeing gore shower around the player in such close proximity gives a feeling of realism never seen before in the series. DOOM VFR is yet another effort to show of the incredible virtual reality revolution and players who are new to the gaming experience or those seasoned will find much to enjoy in battling an array of terrifying demons as close to you as physically possible.
