Modders bring HTC Vive support to DOOM 3: BFG Edition

 

The modder "Codes4Fun" has brought HTC Vive support to DOOM 3: BFG Edition, including motion controller support and has released the mod for free on Github, allowing HTC Vive users to play DOOM 3 in a whole new way.

This mod supports full 90FPS gameplay in stereo, offering gamers a full VR experience with room-scale tracking. All weapons in the game are fitted with laser sights to make aim easier in VR with motion controls.  

Below is some gameplay from the YouTuber SweViver VR, who demos the VR mod showcasing how easy it is to play and use. 

 

  

To install the mod you will need an HTC Vive and a copy of DOOM 3: BFG Edition. Below is a set of instruction on how to install the mod after you download it on Github



Instructions:

1. If you don't have Doom 3 BFG yet, get it on Steam.


2. Download the latest version of RBDOOM-3-BFG mod available (currently 1.1.0) from the Github-link above. The mod is a .zip file containing a few files inside.

3. Extract ALL the files from the .zip into the Doom 3 BFG game folder (where you installed the game, for me its C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\DOOM 3 BFG Edition\)

3. Start up Steam VR and power up the Vive controllers, and wait until all are green and ready in SteamVR.

4. Double click on the RBDoom3BFG.exe file and put on your Vive headset.

5. Enjoy Doom 3 BFG gameplay in VR on your Vive! 

 

Right now this mod is available as version 1.1.0 and has already been updated seven times since it was released with new features, console commands and bug fixes.
