A downloadable game for Windows


On May 5, 1992, id Software released Wolfenstein 3D. Known as the grandfather of modern first-person shooters and groundbreaking in it's design, Wolfenstein 3D set a new, higher standard for action games.

In 1993, Alternate Worlds Technology, Inc. (AWT) first attempted to bring Wolfenstein to virtual reality. With the use of Polhemus tracker technology, they created an arcade-style head-mounted display version of Wolf3D aptly named "Wolfenstein VR."

Now, modern virtual reality tech allows us to step inside the castle once again in this tribute to one of the greatest games ever made.

Presented here is the "shareware release" of Wolfenstein 3D as you've never experienced it before. Brave ten levels of labyrinth-like halls, killer dogs, secret passages, and an army of Nazi forces as you try to make your daring escape in Wolfenstein 3D VR!


Supported devices:

-HTC Vive 

-Oculus Rift

-Windows Mixed Reality

As a streamer on Twitch, I LOVE playing this VR version of the game on stream, as my viewers seem to enjoy it! I am 36,  and played the original of this as a kid, and loved playing it then!! Keep up the great work!! =)   


EDIT:  I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE POSSIBILITY OF BRINGING UP THE MAP! PERHAPS USING THE MENU BUTTON TO BRING UP THE MAP?!

Snapturn isn't working correctly for me on rift.  Holding trigger and pressing "y' turns 90 degrees to the right, and I can't seem to snap turn any other direction no matter what button combo.  Also, pressing y without the trigger toggles run, instead of clicking the stick like it's supposed to be.

I'll look into it. Thanks for letting me know.

Awesome! Thanks for making this.  Even with these minor control issues, i'm honestly having a huge blast with this.  Those SS and K9 units really get my heart pumping every time I open a door and they sound off :-D.  I've been dreaming of playing this since I was a kid, thanks for all your hard work!

This was EXCELLENT and worked very well on my system. Thank You

Great work Further Beyond!! This VR version is an opportunity to play wolfenstein3D again in a more immersive way.

Two questions:

- Is there "sensitivity control" for trackpad? Sometimes the movement is too fast for me.

- Is there any possibility (now or future) to mod the game? For example: change textures or models?

kind regards,

Is it possible to do a release on daydream and mobile vr ?

What is available and out on your patreon as games and builds?

do I need to redownload this game for the updates?

Yes, you will need to download the newest build for updates.

Will the other episodes ever be added? Awesome work btw.

great game but really needs controller turning on oculus rift. takes me back. please do doom next!!!!

Yeah, I played a fair amount even though I couldn't turn haha. Would be awesome to be able to spin haha.

Yes!! Exactly!!! Please add a smooth turning option to the right controller and I will be a fan of this game FOREVER!!!! (Rift)

Are there any issues with downloading?  I click on download and the new window opens.  It says the download will start shortly but it never does.  I have tried it in three browsers and two different computers.  I would love to try the game.  Thanks.

I had a friend do it for me.  I still don't understand why I couldn't get it to work.

Please add support on the oculus rift to free turn (not snap) by using the right thumbstick. That would make the game perfect. Currently there is no way to turn using the touch controllers. The game looks amazing and i hope you re-make more classics in VR. Or maybe add an option for snapturn too for people who prefer that, but also have free turn.

+1 for turning

Great game and not uncomfortable at all.Just difficult on oculus without snapturn.Praise Jesus !

What engine did you build this with? Thanks!

Looks like Unreal Engine :)

(+1)

You got it!

I remember playing this on 3do for the first time...thought it was in the future then in 96.Praise Jesus!

Consider adding snapturn to oculus,thanks.Praise Jesus !

Can you put or port this to daydream and oculus gear vr.Would be great on mirage solo.Praise Jesus!

Wow thanks for this! Trip down memory lane for me. Finally playing it how I imagined VR would be like. How to play the other non share ware levels? I would love a map if you're gonna do feature requests. 

Oculus Rift Gameplay, you can see the angle of the gun is wrong.

Thanks Further Beyond for your awesome work!

Great job and very cool.Works on oculus with some patience.Praise Jesus!

Tried it on the Rift and everything was fine apart from the gun aiming. You have to hold the gun facing forwards & down at a 45 % angle. My video should be up tomorrow. GREAT JOB GUYS!  - Please do more classics.

This would be amazing if other games with this engine would work. Like Corridor 7. :)

Great work!! Tested on windows Odyssey and for the most part had good results however the arms were rotated like 15 degrees to the right of me. I'm still doing other calibrations to make sure that im not the reason for that issue.


Great work!

id also love to see easy rotations with swipes or something on the pad this way if i dont want to face my pc I can rotate the world a little :)

This is awesome! What I'd like most is an always run option or a toggle button. 

Is there no way to switch the movement direction to controller based and not headset based? I really liked the game but felt sick after the first level.

There is now! :D

I switched the orientation from HMD to controller, doesn't seem to behave any differently. I'm on a Vive Pro. Also, being able to click the left or right side of the track pad and change orientation 90 degrees would be amazing. I have to turn so much I get wrapped up in my cable.

Please port these two exactly as they are, with your enhancements of course :) Best versions of Doom in my opinion. The soundtracks alone are full of atmosphere and much better suited than the OST we're all familiar with.

this is absolutely incredible! Great job further beyond studios!
