  • Skyrim, Doom and Fallout 4 get VR release dates

Bethesda Softworks has finally dated the VR adaptations of games showcased at E3 2017, namely The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim VR, Fallout 4 VR and DOOM VR. And those titles should have you salivating: Doom VFR arrives on December 1st to the PSVR and HTC Vive, Fallout 4 VR hits the Vive on December 12th, and Skyrim VR will land on the PSVR on November 17th. While Bethesda has said it plans to support as many headsets as possible, it's also plausible that, due to the legal squabbles between Bethesda's parent company, Zenimax, and Oculus VR, that these games won't end up making it to the Rift in an official capacity. This title is a brand new Doom experience made for VR. However, it's coming out for both PlayStation VR and HTC Vive.

KitGuru Says: I'm looking forward to seeing how such a huge game like Fallout 4 handles in VR. "Fallout 4 VR" is scheduled to launch on December 12.




At E3 earlier this year, Bethesda announced VR versions of several blockbuster games from its repertoire. The VR conversions of Fallout 4 and Skyrim all looked great-while the PSVR visuals on the latter did look a bit rough-and Doom's VFR looked like a fun time for Doom fans. The games will get their respective headsets which will make the virtual reality situation come to life.

Bethesda wants you to stuff its biggest releases right in your face, and if you're going to QuakeCon 2017, you can try before you buy. This year's convention takes places from August 24-27.
