Doom VFR is out now, so here are the system requirements

I played a bit of Doom VFR last week at a preview event, and while it was on a PSVR and not the Vive, it was pretty fun. The return of telefragging is especially great: in VR, you're teleporting into ailing enemies in order to get the glory kill. Brutal, almost nauseatingly violent, but hey: that's video games.
