The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2017 has been full of announcements so far, and Bethesda’s conference was great for virtual reality (VR) fans. Fallout 4 VR and DOOM VFR set gamer social media on fire, and hopes are high for both videogames – but some gamers might feel burnt by what’s not included in the package for Fallout 4 VR.
According to Bethesda’s press site, Fallout 4 VR includes “the complete core game,” a worrying indicator you won’t be getting any of Fallout 4’s DLC included when you purchase Fallout 4 VR.
VRFocus previously had concerns about Fallout 4 VR during its preview at E3 last year, saying: “Luckily this isn’t a finished product as if it was it’d be woeful, a tarnish on the Fallout series, and VR. Just taking a AAA IP and wedging it into VR doesn’t mean that it’ll work and for the most part it’s not the best VR experience. It’s still early days and hopefully some of these issues can be resolved to provide a title that’s worthy of the heritage.”
With the title commanding a premium price of $59.99 USD, Bethesda has yet to comment on whether or not players who already own Fallout 4 and it’s DLC will receive any sort of discount or free upgrade.
Fallout 4 VR will be hitting HTC Vive headsets later this year – support for either Oculus Rift or PlayStation VR is yet to be confirmed.
Let’s hope Bethesda has some sort of plan to accommodate gamers who have already invested in Fallout 4, otherwise they may have a few upset fans.
