How to get DOOM VFR working with the Oculus Rift

DOOM VFR does not (officially) support the Oculus Rift, though it's possible to use it. We'll show you how to unleash the demons with the Rift with our guide.

Today is not only the start of our Xmas Sale, but the long awaited DOOM can finally be played in VR with DOOM VFR now available. But for some, that experience is going to be harder to try than they expected as currently Bethesda only supports the PlayStation VR on PS4 and the HTC Vive on PC, due to legal battles between Bethesda parent company Zenimax and Oculus Rift they do not support the Rift Officially. However all is not lost, and Valve has managed to save the day with a way to play the latest VR title on your Rift. We'll show you how.

How to get DOOM VFR working with the Oculus Rift

It's not even been out for 24 hours, but Valve has provided SteamVR with an update for supporting DOOM VFR. This new beta patch will allow gamers to get their hands on the latest VR version of DOOM on their Oculus Rift, though it's still lacking official support for now. If you can't wait for an official solution then you can opt in to the beta right now:

  • Launch Steam and select the tools from the library
  • Search for SteamVR and select the entry, right click and select "Properties"
  • Click on the "Betas" tab, select "beta - SteamVR Beta Update" from the drop-down menu
  • Close the Properties window and SteamVR Beta will be updated automatically

You can switch back to the Default Settings at any point from the same Menu, now go shoot some demons in VR with DOOM VFR!

Note: We've tried DOOM VFR ourselves with the Oculus Rift, and aside from the crazy PC system requirements (a GTX 1070 is recommended), the Rift hardware is almost perfect. The only thing we found was that the hands of the character are not 100% adapted to the touch controllers, and are slightly angled. This only causes a slight negative experience and is not going to hurt the gameplay too much.
