Doom VFR

Wow, pretty solid VR game. Hopefully Beth fixes stuff to make it more Rift friendly (they publicly said they will), but even now it runs smoothly and provides a whole new experience in VR.

So it is rift compatible?  It doesn't list Rift on the Steam page.

Indeed. However, you have to switch to Steam VR beta in order to run it (Steam's mess, not Beth's).

Steam VR runs really slow on my machine.  It also seems to use a lot of resources and run any game through it slower then if I can use the Oculus API instead.  I find it strange I can run RoboRecall very smooth but I can't even run the Steam VR "room" at more then ~10fps.  I bought "Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes" through Steam because it was on sale and if I use Steam VR mode it runs @ 1/2 FPS vs if I use Oculus VR mode.  :?

Motorsep, is doom VFR Doom 2016 in VR mode (whole game), is it an addon to Doom 2016 to add VR, or is it a different game?

Thanks! :)

It's a standalone spin-off. It has short campaign (shorter than the original, but since it's in VR, it has decent duration) + 12 unlockable classic Doom levels remakes.
