New PlayStation VR games announced; including 'Doom 3 VR Edition'

During its PS VR Spotlight event yesterday, Sony announced that 6 new VR games will launch on its device, among which is a VR version of Doom 3. Titled Doom 3 VR Edition, it features Doom 3 and its expansions, Resurrection of Evil and The Lost Mission, adapted for PS VR. These VR enhancements allow you to peer around corners, angle your shots using motion controls, perform 180-degree quick-turn and a wrist-mounted display to track your health, armor and ammo. Doom 3 VR Edition launches March 29 for PlayStation 4 and is backwards compatible on PlayStation 5.


In addition to the VR version of Doom 3, 5 other games were announced that will come later this year, including a new game from the creators of Arizona Sunshine and an anime-inspired VR MMO. But no launch date was given for these games, with most having a vague '2021' planned release. You can find a trailer and a synopsis of those games below, along with a link to the game's PlayStation Blog post for more details:

Song in the Smoke immerses players in a beautiful and deadly VR world where they must craft, forage, hunt, and fight to survive.

Take survival into your own hands, and stay alive by gathering materials to make tools, weapons, clothing, medicine and shelter. Use your club and bow to fend off strange beasts, battle the elements, and embark on a quest to uncover the secrets of the Song in the Smoke, coming to PS VR in 2021.


IT’S THE END OF THE FRACKING WORLD – COMING TO PS VR SUMMER 2021

From the creators of the ground-breaking Phantom: Covert Ops, Fracked is the trailblazing new VR action adventure that seamlessly collides relentless “run and cover” gunfights with free and fluid skiing, running and climbing. Uncompromised, audacious, and unashamedly stylish, Fracked grabs the PS VR by the Moves and delivers an ass kicking virtual reality game that has been fully enhanced for PS5™.



In I Expect You To Die 2, players return to the immersive world of espionage.

After secretly surviving the final mission of I Expect You To Die, players go deep undercover to explore the diabolical intelligence the Agency received regarding Zoraxis’ move for world domination. Players will embark on brand new missions to figure out what Zoraxis is up to, use their elite spy skills to retrieve vital intelligence for the Agency, and try their very best not to die mid mission.

Launching in 2021

Surprised it took them so long to put DOOM 3 on PSVR, it had been modded in near-flawlessly for PC VR like five years ago. Several others here look quite good, however. Hopefully most get ported, if not all. I know I Expect You to Die 2 is most likely simultaneous release with PC.

I'm really happy that companies are still betting on VR. VR is something that really gets me excited, but it is still something very expensive and barely accessible for most... PSVR at least manages to be much more accessible than PC VRs even if it is not of the same quality.

Oh I'm betting they can do good things in VR with the PS5's power, especially considering what they did with 1080p on PS4. If they can manage anything close to 1440p OLED displays, it'll be gorgeous.

Oculus is already there with price and accessibility, thanks to the rather insane adoption rate of the Quest lineup (which just recently became the most popular VR headset on Steam apparently :lol:). $300 for a complete VR setup is very affordable and very accessible given that you don't need to buy anything else, vs Sony's PSVR which will require a $350-$400 PS5 "base" purchase in addition to whatever they end up charging for PSVR 2 (which is probably $400+, just like the first PSVR, though I'd love to see them go down to like $300 just to try and compete).

What we really need is more competition in the standalone VR space if we want to see more affordable VR for everyone, not so much headsets that require a secondary big purchase (whether it's a PS5 or a PC).

DOOM...3? The one with not-DOOMGuy, and is more horror-ish and less blood-pumping-action than DOOMs 1 and 2? The one with the torch, from memory?

Why?
I have an app on my phone called DVR, created by Dr. Beef. It's been removed from the Play Store, but you'll probably be able to find the APK elsewhere. It's a Doom source port for Google Cardboard. You'll need a Bluetooth controller, but it works.
