THE COMPLETE DOOM 3 EXPERIENCE ON PSVR: DOOM 3: VR Edition is the complete package of the acclaimed action-horror shooter transformed into an immersive white-knuckle VR experience that spans DOOM 3 and both campaign expansions – Resurrection of Evil and The Lost Mission – for more than 15-hours of visceral gameplay.
Hell’s demons have overrun Mars through an inter-dimensional portal and threaten to invade Earth. Battle the demonic invaders through the claustrophobic corridors of an abandoned research facility and into the depths of hell itself to close the portal and stop the demons from getting to Earth.
AIM CONTROLLER SUPPORT: Take the powerful demon-killing arsenal into your own hands with full AIM controller support. Use the AIM controller’s precision to land the perfect headshot, easily check corners or blind fire from cover, and dodge attacks without pulling your finger off the trigger.
CLASSIC WEAPONS, ALL NEW LOOK AND SOUND: DOOM 3: VR Edition’s arsenal looks and sounds better than ever. Every weapon is fully realized in high resolution, with upgraded textures, shaders and visual effects. To complement their new look each weapon’s sound effects have been completely revamped to be louder and meaner. Ripping and tearing demons has never looked or felt this good.
VITALS AT A GLANCE: Keep instant tabs on your health, armor, and flashlight battery levels with a quick glance at the all-new wrist-mounted display, while ammo counts are now displayed directly on your weapons.

From Push Square:
DOOM 3 VR is also able to breathe new life into one of the game’s more divisive facets: the horror. While jump scares are constant, and as annoying as ever, the VR succeeds in placing you on Mars in a way DOOM 3 has never previously been able to accomplish. This means all of the ambient audio, the lighting, the abrupt discomfiting silence – everything contributes to the creepiness of the experience to an unprecedented level. It provides an opportunity to appreciate all of the things that DOOM 3 did well all those years ago, without having to carry the baggage of defining the series moving forward. And it’s better for it. Just don’t expect much of a visual upgrade, as thanks to the headset’s limitations, things more or less look the same as when the game first launched.
