There’s just over a week to go until The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR launches for Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIEs) PlayStation VR, marking one of the biggest IP launches for virtual reality (VR) headsets. To mark the even, SIE has today announced a new bundle featuring the epic role-playing game (RPG) and the PlayStation VR.
The PlayStation VR Skyrim VR Bundle includes the updated head-mounted display (HMD), featuring a revised design that enables the stereo headphone cables to be integrated with the headset, a slimmer, streamlined connection cable and a new Processor Unit that supports HDR pass through. Also in the box is the PlayStation Camera, two PlayStation Move controllers, and Skyrim VR — including the Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn add-ons. Additionally, an updated PlayStation VR Demo Disc including demos from 13 titles included.
For those interested in the new bundle, it will launch alongside the videogame on 17th November in the US for $449.99 USD and in Canada for $579.99 CAD, with pre-orders starting today. Currently there’s no word on a European bundle being made available. If that happens VRFocus will let you know.
In addition to the bundle announcement, SIE has revealed a new TV spot to promote the launch which can be seen below.
VRFocus last previewed The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR during Gamescom in August, saying that: “[the videogame] 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.”
While the release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR will surely sell more PlayStation VR HMDs the addition of the updated headset will likely make the bundle highly sort after in the festive period. Since the new headsets release in Japan sales rocketed even though the update was only minor.
