Bethesda has announced that it will be bringing Skyrim VR to PC on April 3. As Bethesda has already released PC versions of Doom VFR and Fallout VR, this news is unsurprising to most gamers. Still, this will expand the playability of the already popular game once again, keeping it relevant in the present-day market.
In the announcement, Bethesda claimed that “whether you’re a longtime fan or taking on the horned mantle of the Dragonborn for the first time, Skyrim VR for SteamVR promises an epic journey in virtual reality across a massive world for you to explore any way you choose.”
As a note, this will be the ninth release of the game through the various gaming platforms, which already include the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation3, PS4, PS VR, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
Skyrim VR will support the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. As with its PlayStation counterpart, the game will be retailed at $60.
As VR games become more popular, it is likely this will not be the last time we see VR experiences from Bethesda. While there is no news of another release yet, popular series like Wolfenstein and The Evil Within would be a great fit for the virtual reality world. As always, we shall see what happens.
