Oculus Rift backers offered refund as Doom 3 BFG Edition fails to make launch
Support for VR headset in Doom 3 BFG Edition won't be ready when development kits ship.
Kickstarter backers of the upcoming Oculus Rift virtual reality headset won't be getting the pledged launch support for Doom 3 BFG Edition, the company has announced.
Backers of the Oculus Rift development kit were to receive a free copy of Doom 3 BFG Edition as an additional incentive, with the game featuring full support for the VR headset.
This has now been removed because Doom 3 BFG Edition will not support the Oculus Rift before the development kit is shipped to retailers. Instead, the company is offering all customers either $20 of Steam Wallet credit, $25 of Oculus Store credit, or a full refund.
Any affected customers can check their order status on the Oculus Order Manager website and choose their desired alternative. The choice will default to Oculus Store credit if not made by April 5.
Oculus Rift headsets are set to begin shipping to the first set of customers in the next few days, following a delay from December. The Kickstarter campaign for the headset set a funding target of $250,000 but raised $2,437,429 in August 2012.
