Popular sideloaded Oculus Quest game launcher QuestZDoom has been updated to include Wolfenstein 3D, now playable on wireless standalone VR.
QuestZDoom released back in May last year, created for Oculus Quest by community modder Simon ‘DrBeef’ Brown and others. The app is a launcher that lets you play free versions of DOOM and other iconic 90s games in VR, using an adapted engine that brings the games to life in full roomscale VR. Users who legally own the original games are also able to transfer their original WAD files into QuestZDoom, to use the original assets and get the proper authentic feel.
At launch, QuestZDoom included the original DOOM from 1993, as well as DOOM II, Heretic and Hexen. There’s also support for a bunch of games mods as well, such as Brutal Doom and more.
This week, QuestZDoom was updated to include support for Wolfenstein 3D, a first-person shooter originally released by id software in 1992 for DOS. Much like the other included games, this version of Wolfenstein 3D is a “careful fan recreation/mod”. It will be included with the latest version of the QuestZDoom launcher and engine, so all you need to do is update via SideQuest if you’ve already got the QuestZDoom installed.
If you’re new to the world of sideloding and QuestZDoom, be sure to check out our guides on how to sideload content onto the Oculus Quest and how to install and use the QuestZDoom launcher and engine. Following those guides should get your Quest ready to go with Wolfenstein 3D and the other included games.
QuestZDoom is just one of many ports from DrBeef and other community modders that bring classic game titles to wireless VR on Oculus Quest. Some of the other ports include Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Doom 3 and the original Half-Life, all of which are available to sideload via SideQuest.
