Bethesda Game Studios’ The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR is set to launch worldwide tomorrow, 17th November 2017, exclusively for PlayStation VR. VRFocus has already spent numerous hours in the world of Tamriel, and now can bring you the first in a series of hands-on gameplay videos.
Familiar to anyone who has already experienced any official edition of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the opening sequence depicted in the video below is the only linear aspect of the videogame. Herein, the player must face their potential fate at the hands of the Imperial Legion, guilty by association with the rebellion leader Ulfric Stormcloack. However, upon arrival at Helgen, things take a much unexpected turn.
During this video viewers will see the basics of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR’s control mechanics when played with a DualShock 4 controller (video content featuring both teleportation and smooth locomotion options with a set of PlayStation Move motion controllers will also follow), plus a brief look at the character creation system.
With the videogame set to launch tomorrow, VRFocus delivered a review of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR earlier today, stating: “A huge adventure lies in every direction and the player is free to go about whatever business they choose, however they choose to do so. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the closest VR has yet come to a truly free role-playing experience.”
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR will be available from tomorrow for the same full retail price as the original release from back in 2011. However, for those already initiated in the medium of virtual reality (VR) it’s very hard to argue that being immersed in such a huge world isn’t worth the asking price.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR is the first of three titles coming from Bethesda this year, with both DOOM VFR (PlayStation VR and HTC Vive) and Fallout 4 VR (HTC Vive only) still to come. You can watch the first in VRFocus’ series of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR gameplay videos below and be sure to check back for all the latest from Bethesda.
