Skyrim VR sheds PSVR exclusivity and heads to PC this April

Adjust Comment Print

Bethesda announced a VR version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim at E3 2017, which arrived as an exclusive for the PlayStation 4's PSVR headset, late past year. The fully immersive VR title will be available starting April 3rd, joining the ranks of DOOM VFR and Fallout 4 VR on the Valve client. Soon you can experience the breathtaking scale of Skyrim in virtual reality on SteamVR.

Initially released in November 2017 for the PlayStation VR, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR brings the world of Skyrim to live from the comfort of your virtual reality headset.

The SteamVR version will have the same enormous scope, while including "a made-for-VR control scheme that allows players to move, hack and slash at foes, and cast powerful magic with real-life movements".

The VR market has had some pretty high profile releases over the last few months, but few were as big as Skyrim VR. If VR isn't so much your thing, however, you can play Skyrim just about everywhere, including the Nintendo Switch. As was the case on PSVR, the Steam version of Skyrim VR will include the celebrated base game, alongside the newly VR-ified Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn expansions.
