Bethesda Softworks are preparing for the launch of one of the biggest virtual reality (VR) titles of the year, both figuratively and in terms of content. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR will be available exclusively for PlayStation VR this Friday, 17th November 2017, but for those who can’t wait to see exactly how the videogame plays Bethesda Softworks are hosting a live play session today.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR is a fully fledged VR adaptation of 2011’s groundbreaking RPG. Launching alongside a Nintendo Switch port of the original The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR will come complete with all the downloadable content (DLC) previously released for the videogame – though not looking likely to receive mod support any time soon – The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR features a huge world littered with unique quests, interactions and experiences.
VRFocus has been hands-on with the VR port of the videogame a number of times, stating in a preview of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR: “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR still looks set to deliver an engrossing VR experience unlike anything that’s been seen before. The massive world and potential for hundreds of hours of gameplay is simply light years ahead of the common VR offerings, and for that one could argue that Bethesda Softworks’ lack of generosity regarding the price point of the videogame might actually be justified.”
Today’s livestream, hosted by Bethesda Softworks on the company’s official Twitch channel, will hopefully offer eager fans new insight into that experience and the world in which it takes place. Exactly and what point in the videogame the stream will begin and what quests the player at the helm will take are not yet known. The embed below will allow you to watch the entire play session when it begins today at 5:30pm GMT.
As stated above, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR is set for release exclusively on PlayStation VR this coming Friday, 17th November 2017. VRFocus will have plenty of coverage coming in the run up to launch, including a developer interview and an in-depth review.
