The game, first announced at last year's Bethesda E3 showcase, is coming to the HTC Vive in October. Fortunately, the company introduced two experiences that will be coming out this year for various virtual reality headsets.

However, these new titles were finally revealed to fans as "The Evil Within 2" and "Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus". The studio calls the techniques used in the new updates Bethesda VR. And just when it looked like we were toast, the player pulled out a lovely shotgun and turned the approaching foes into puddles of hot, steaming blood and guts. Creation Club is set to launch summer this year.

Wolfenstein: The New Order surprised us all by actually being really good, so we're hoping that newly announced sequel The New Colossus can repeat the trick.

The whole reason to get a VR headset is to see stuff explode like this. Doom VFR does not now have a release date, but will arrive on PC and the Playstation 4.

The new game is being developed by id Software, the development studio originally responsible for the "Doom" franchise. The footage also showed a player waving Joy-Cons around to pull off certain game controls, like drawing a sword or using magic.

Fallout 4 VR with have you leaving vault 111 and exploring the wasteland in true first person - though luckily, you won't have to deal with the rads and mirelurks. Well, now you have one more reason to joke about, since it seems that the game will be available on HTC Vive too.

If you buy something from one of these links IGN may get a share of the sale.
