Ready to tear into some hellish demons in VR? DOOM VFR for PSVR launches today, so you’ll be able to fully immerse in the act of killing a horde of demons! The PlayStation.Blog also has some tips for the aspiring soldier.

First off, the DOOM PSVR release trailer:

Being a PSVR title, DOOM VFR might be a little more difficult to get a grasp of the controls over an average shooter. The PlayStation.Blog’s tips are sure to help:

Futuristic weapons, hellish demons, nightmarish environments…

Set shortly after the demonic invasion on the UAC Martian Research facility, you find yourself as the last human survivor – until you die. Under a top-secret UAC operational contingency protocol, your consciousness is transferred into an artificial brain matrix enabling you to transfer between various bodies and machinery in the UAC base. This gives you the ability to teleport as a style of movement and also interact with your environment to overcome the demon hordes.

Movement is key

Lightning-fast movement, instinctive evasiveness and the ability to think on the fly are crucial skills for survival, and these are just as important in Doom VFR. The ability to use the PS VR Aim controller allows for unprecedented demon-slaying accuracy. The L2 button at the front of the controller allows you to slow down time and teleport (great for lining up that perfect Gauss Cannon shot), while the directional pad is reserved for dash buttons, enabling you to dart forward, backwards, left and right.
