The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR Announced for SteamVR

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR Announced for SteamVR

Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel and the future of the Empire hangs in the balance.

Though the PSVR release of Skyrim VR was received well, it's expected that a PC VR version will solve a few control issues due to the better motion controllers PC headsets have. Today, Bethesda announced that it's bringing the popular first-person RPG to SteamVR PCs, ending Sony's almost six-month VR exclusive. Skyrim VR was flawless for PC, however Bethesda did not throw us one bone until today. It's also worth mentioning that Skyrim VR will incorporate the base game as well as its additional content.

Skyrim VR contains the complete critically-acclaimed core game as well as all its official add-ons, Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn, all bundled together into one package.

If you're wondering why Skyrim VR was exclusive to the PSVR initially, Bethesda's Head of PR and Marketing Pete Hine, explained the reasoning behind the decision to Player.One at last year's QuakeCon. This time, the port is something to be excited about, though, because Bethesda is releasing Skyrim VR to Steam!

Life can be uncertain, but you can always rely on Bethesda finding a new way for players to experience Skyrim. However, we now have the exact date of its arrival, and it looks like it's sooner than we thought.

As someone who owns an HTC Vive (and is eyeing the new Vive Pro with fascination) I can say that VR is an absolute blast especially in a more social setting.
