Doom VFR and Fallout 4 VR Announced for HTC Vive

After teasing the games at last year’s E3, Bethesda officially revealed the VR versions of DOOM and Fallout 4, titled DOOM VFR and Fallout 4 VR respectively.

While Doom VFR seems to be a set of side content of some sort, Fallout 4 VR is the entire game playable in VR. Both titles are launching later this year on HTC Vive.

Here are trailers and brief descriptions of both titles, via Bethesda:

Fallout 4, the legendary post-apocalyptic adventure from Bethesda Game Studios and winner of more than 200 ‘Best Of’ awards, including the DICE and BAFTA Game of the Year, finally comes in its entirety to VR. Fallout 4 VR includes the complete core game with all-new combat, crafting, and building systems fully reimagined for virtual reality. The freedom of exploring the wasteland comes alive like never before.

As the sole survivor of Vault 111, you enter a world destroyed by nuclear war. Every second is a fight for survival, and every choice is yours. Only you can rebuild and determine the fate of the Wasteland. Welcome home.

Available for PlayStation VR and VIVE platforms, this Doom adventure will bathe you in virtual carnage. Developed by id Software, the studio that pioneered the first-person shooter genre and modern VR, Doom VFR brings the fast-paced, brutal gameplay fans of the series love to virtual reality. Immerse yourself in the UAC facility on Mars and the depths of Hell, as your skills are put to the test through intense combat and challenging puzzle-solving. Play as a cybernetic survivor who is activated by the UAC to fight the demon invasion, maintain order, and prevent catastrophic failure at the Mars facility. Lay waste to an army of demonic foes as you explore and interact with the outlandish world of Doom from an entirely new perspective.


Set shortly after the demonic invasion on the UAC’s Martian research facility, you are the last known human survivor – until your death. Under a top-secret UAC operational contingency protocol, your consciousness is transferred to an artificial brain matrix. Your designated purpose: restore operational stability and use any means necessary to stop the onslaught of demons.

Key Features

  • Experience Doom combat and its iconic weapons and demons from an entirely new perspective.
  • Physically interact with the Doom universe as you seamlessly traverse across the UAC facility and Hell using teleportation and jet-strafe movement.
  • Explore all-new UAC Martian research facility areas and discover the unique abilities of a cybernetic UAC security operative.
