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:
