Doom 4 Will Support Oculus Rift VR Headset

Posted by at 12:34 pm on August 6, 2012

Doom 4 will be compatible with the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset (the one that was over-funded via Kickstarter in less than 24 hours last week), just like its baby brother, Doom 3 BFG Edition. id Software has been involved with Oculus Rift for some time, showing off Doom 3 BFG running on Rift at this year’s E3 and including a copy of the game with every Rift dev kit.

“I’m excited for once Doom 3 ships, and gets out there, I’ll put all this stuff into the Doom 4 platform, which will be nice to take our current top-of-the-line stuff and have that in virtual reality,” ID’s John Carmack told Polygon at QuakeCon. “I’m looking forward to doing that.”

The Oculus Rift Kickstarter has so far raised more than $1.26 million of its desired $250,000, with 26 days to go.
