Earlier this month the online rumour mill erupted as details emerged that Bethesda has supposedly been working on a virtual reality (VR) version of its massively popular fantasy role-playing game (RPG) Skyrim. Those rumours first surfaced 4Chan, a website not always known for being reputable with its leaks, but it seems as though this time it was actually true. Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) has begun its E3 2017 press conference and surprise surprise the company has confirmed the existence of Skyrim VR.
Bethesda’s award winning Skyrim will now be coming to PlayStation VR, although a release date has yet to be confirmed.
Up till now virtual reality (VR) news at E3 2017 has been a little thin, with press conferences from Electronic Arts (EA) and Microsoft including barely any. EA did unveil a new R&D division called SEED and Microsoft did announce a unification of Minecraft across most platforms including mobile, VR, consoles and PC.
While the press conferences have so far lacked loads of VR news, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE) showcase today is likely to feature even more good morsels of information relating to PlayStation VR. And there’s the fact that the main E3 event itself is set to include plenty of VR exhibitors.
