'Doom' is getting a VR game

First up, we got our first look at Doom VFR for the HTC Vive and PlayStation VR (PSVR), then we got a release window for Fallout 4 on Vive.

One of the best games of all time revealed at E3 2017 by Bethesda. From the minute-plus trailer, we see the familiar, barren landscapes from the 2015 game, as well as all the crafting and customization options.

At PAX East this year, Bethesda's VP of PR and Marketing Pete Hines described the VR version of Fallout 4 the "craziest thing you've ever seen". Bethesda's description of the game reads, "In DOOM: VFR, the demons from Hell have wiped out everyone inside the UAC's Martian research facility - except you".

The Evil Within 2 is coming exclusively to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC platform on October 13.

We'll keep our fingers crossed for much more.

It might be a moot point for some, but when you consider the fact that you'll be spending upwards of 15 hours with these very charismatic and ragtag Nazi resistance fighters, it helps that they look stellar too. This is your opportunity to step into the Wasteland and experience Fallout 4 in a whole new way.

Just like the Fallout4VR, the DOOM VFR title will be available later on in 2017.

William "B.J." Blazcowicz reprises his role as savior of humanity, coming back from what seemed like a certain death in the last title of the franchise.

The game takes players to the aftermath of the episodic DLC story from the first installment, with Billie Lurk and Daud again at the center of all.

Speaking of the massively popular open-world RPG, Bethesda also confirmed that the Nintendo Switch version of the game - previously revealed in the official debut trailer for the system in October 2016 - will release this fall and is set to feature exclusive Zelda-themed content. The idea of paid mods has been met with resistance by Fallout and Elder Scrolls fans in the past, so this fresh attempt is interesting. You will be playing as characters from the game and while it's not technically DLC you can expect about the same kind of DLC value.

In August, Horns of the Reach will add two new dungeons for you to die in but also a few new items to increase your chances of survival.
