Now Playing: Doom VFR Reveal Trailer - E3 2017

At its E3 press conference, Bethesda showed gameplay of its Doom VR port. Officially titled Doom VFR, the first-person shooter was shown running on the HTC Vive and highlighted the port's unique dash/teleportation mechanic.

The gameplay video (embedded below) features floating hands in conjunction with lots of machine-gun shooting action. Many VR games shy away from being too fast, in order to mitigate nausea, but Doom VFR seems to maintain the shooter's trademark fast and frenetic pace. It does look like the action goes into slow motion when you're flying through the air, however.

No specific release date was announced yet, but Doom VFR is set to launch by the end of the year. Click here for more of our comprehensive E3 coverage. Other announcements include the VR version of Fallout 4 and a Creation Club for Fallout 4 and Skyrim.

I'd have to give it a try before I could give a decent take. For that, I need a VR rig. :/

The concept on paper is really cool, but the dash movement being the only movement in this looks pretty clunky and awkward...

Give me Cloverfield style camera levels of nausea or no buy! Lol

Seriously, just include an OPTION to turn on/off full normal movement speeds.

No normal movement = total utter ****.

I'm guess VFR stands for Virtual Fucking Reality,

as a take on Big Fucking Gun, as in “BFG Edition”.

Virtual Fucking Reality? Very Fucking Real?

What does the "VFR" stands for?
Virtual F-ing Reality?
This is a legit question, btw.

@hansond_jaysond_lee: Probably to go with its well reknowned gun in the DOOM series named the BFG so they called the VR version VFR.

@hansond_jaysond_lee: asked myself the same question, probably assume it's virtual effing reality.
