First-person shooters in VR are a dime a dozen, but Doom VFR is on an entirely different level. Combining the AAA scale of a Doom with the full immersion is truly epic, but currently only officially available for PlayStation VR and HTC Vive.

Got a different headset? You can still enjoy Doom VFR. Here's what you need to know!

Playing Doom VFR on Windows Mixed Reality

It doesn't matter which Windows Mixed Reality headset you have, they can all play Doom VFR on launch day if you follow our simple guide.

Playing Doom VFR on Oculus Rift

If you own an Oculus Rift and want to play Doom VFR, all you need is SteamVR installed on your PC. Once you buy Doom VFR, you can launch the game in SteamVR and your Oculus Rift will be activated as the system you want to use. The controls will all still be mapped to HTC Vive controllers, but once you learn the button mapping you'll be good to go.

If you'd like to be able to launch Doom VFR from within Oculus Home and not have to deal with SteamVR after making the purchase, we've got a guide for you right here!

Playing Doom VFR through Google Daydream/Cardboard

Don't have a desktop VR headset? Want to build your own for relatively cheap? There's a clever mod with Google Cardboard and a Leap Motion sensor that can give you access to SteamVR, and if you're OK with spending a little cash for some comfort you can do the same with a Google Daydream View headset.

It takes a little technical know-how to make it all work, but if you really want to know what Doom VFR is all about before investing in a headset, this is without a doubt the cheapest way to do so.
