During Bethesda’s E3 2017 conference they made clear that they were doubling down on Bethesda VR, and that all starts with two titles new for virtual reality (VR) – Doom VR and Fallout 4 VR. The support for VR comes as no surprise, as Bethesda have shown demos of their games running on head-mounted displays (HMDs) before.
Launching in 2017, Fallout 4 VR will offer a whole new way to role play in your RPGs, adding an extra level of depth and immersion. The game is confirmed for HTC Vive thus far, with no announcements for other VR platforms yet.
The announcement isn’t too shocking, after we earlier reported that Bethesda’s Vice President of PR, Pete Hines, mentioned the game would be making an appearance during Bethesda’s E3 conference.
In the trailer below we can see how players will be able to lift their arm and view their Pip-Boy in real time, as well as lift and inspect objects in the environment. The prospect of getting a whole new perspective on one of the best RPGs in recent years is a very exciting prospect, potentially making this a new essential title for HTC Vive.
Support for other VR HMDs, such as Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR, is yet to be announced.
Whether it’s the scenic sea or terrifying giant monsters and robots, we can’t wait to explore the wasteland again in VR. To see Fallout 4 VR for yourself, just take a look at the trailer below.
