Doom 3 was originally supposed to be bundled with the virtual reality headset Oculus Rift, however, it seems that they have changed their mind and here’s the reason for that.
The developers got an update from the creators of the tech that the game won’t support the Rift development kit by the time they begin shipping. To compensate for that there will be Steam or Oculus store credit given to them.
How much credit? Well $20 Steam Wallet credit or $25 Oculus Store credit, enough to buy a brand new copy of Doom 3. You can also ask for refund.
There will be software to test the dev kit with though, and here’s what the company had to say about it.
“If you’re worried that there won’t be any content to to try when your dev kit arrives: fear not. We’re hard at work with Meteor and Adhesive to make sure that Hawken‘s an awesome, mech-piloting experience and there are more great developer showcases on the way!”
If you were supposed to receive a DOOM 3 BFG Edition, we’ll replace it with one of the following rewards:
– $20 Steam Wallet credit, perfect for buying your next game on Steam (including DOOM 3 BFG Edition without Rift developer kit support if you still want it).
– $25 Oculus Store credit, which can be applied to future purchases at the Oculus Store including Oculus Latency Testers, new Oculus t-shirts, and more Rift development kits.
– A full refund for your pledge. If you’re unhappy with the options above, we completely understand. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll be happy to discuss your specific order or refund your pledge in full.
