Just in time for Christmas, the much awaited DOOM VFR is getting a PlayStation VR bundle too, giving you everything you need to battle demons from the pits of Hell.
Including a PSVR headset, PS Camera, the new PSVR demo disc and a copy of Doom VFR, the bundle launches on December 1st for $400. Take note: the bundle does not include PS Move controllers. Doom VFR supports DualShock 4 controllers, PS Move, and PS Aim.
Although Sony doesn’t make specific mention in the bundle’s announcement of which PSVR headset is present, as the company is selling both the launch-era headset (CUH-ZVR1) and the latest hardware refresh (CUH-ZVR2) contemporaneously, a close inspection of the box reveals what appears to be the updated version. The headset pictured in the bundle’s box art is sporting the updated headphone caddy, and on the side you can just barely make out the CUH-ZVR2 marking.
You can find pre-orders at Amazon.
While the updated PSVR is really only a minor hardware refresh, which includes a slightly lighter headset, native HDR pass-through, integrated audio, and slimmer cable – it bears mentioning exactly what you’re getting here.
New headset/game bundles currently on offer by Sony include Skyrim VR and GranTurismo Sport, although only the Skyrim bundle contains the updated headset out of the two despite both launching within a week of each other.
If you haven’t heard of Doom VFR, here’s a quick description of the standalone VR title in id Software’s Doom franchise:
Set shortly after the demonic invasion on the UAC’s Martian research facility, you are the last known human survivor–until your death. Under a top-secret UAC operational contingency protocol, your consciousness is transferred to an artificial brain matrix. Your designated purpose: restore operational stability and use any means necessary to stop the onslaught of demons.
