Doom, one of the most important series in the history of games and, arguably, the one that popularised the first-person shooter, is back, and it's set to be the hairiest dive into the world of splode-y demon fighting yet thanks to this version's support of virtual reality!

Originally billed as Doom 4, series developer id Software and publisher Bethesda are now branding this game as a full-scale reboot of the series. Older gamers will know the deal: the Union Aerospace Corporation s has been overwhelmed by demons. One sole hope stands between them and humanity - a lone Doom marine activated to destroy every last one of them. In other words: you.

id Software is emphasising what it's calling 'push forward combat'. Doom is designed to reward those who move fast and kill relentlessly. There's no room in this world for players who want to take cover and recover health - instead players collect health and armour power-ups scattered across levels or kill enemies to get a boost. Gruesome demons (including classics such as the Revenant, Mancubus, and Cyberdemon) swarm over the base and its up to you to dispatch them with classic weapons such as the super shotgun and BFG 9000, as well as melee choices such as the chainsaw.
