After being teased for a couple of months now, the VR version of Doom has now finally made its way to PlayStation VR and HTC Vive. Unlike Fallout 4 VR, however, Doom VFR does not let you play through the entire game in VR, but rather through a bunch of levels specifically designed with VR gameplay in mind.

If you're wondering what these levels might look like, wonder no more as Bethesda has just recently posted a gameplay trailer. Its not very long, but it should give you a pretty damn good idea of what Doom VFR is, and what it isn't. Have a look:

While the concept itself is quite solid, I am saddened to say that Doom VFR is a bit of a buggy mess. The Steam reviews are currently at a meager 56%, with most people citing problems with controls, weapon placement, and the overall UI. As such, I would not recommend you grab Doom VFR right now. That said, these don't appear to be problems that can't be fixed through post-launch patches, so there is still some hope on the horizon. Whether Bethesda and id will go through the effort of doing so, that I do not know, so for now your best course of action is to wait and see what happens.

You can learn more about Doom VFR by heading over to either Steam or the Bethesda website. As for the system requirements, you can find them in the most recent announcement post. And as a final note, here's a brief developer interview, just so you get a better picture of what Doom VFR is all about:
