About

DOOM 3: VR Edition transforms id Software’s critically acclaimed action horror shooter into a white-knuckle VR experience exclusively for PlayStation VR. Playable on PlayStation 4 and backwards compatible with PlayStation 5, DOOM 3: VR Edition includes DOOM 3 and both expansions—“Resurrection of Evil” and “The Lost Mission”—for over 15 hours of intense gameplay.

Story

Hell’s demons have overrun Mars through an inter-dimensional portal and threaten to invade Earth. Battle the demonic invaders through the claustrophobic corridors of an abandoned research facility and into the depths of hell itself to close the portal and stop the demons from getting to Earth.
