Bethesda’s Vice President of PR, Pete Hines has announced that the virtual reality (VR) version of the post-apocalyptic RPG series, Fallout 4 VR, will make an appearance at the company’s E3 Press Conference.
Fallout 4 VR did get a demo at E3 2016, which VRFocus managed to get hold of for a preview. There a 5-minute demo of some gameplay from early in the story was available. Since Fallout 4 VR is due to launch at some point in 2017, it seems likely that the version that will be available at E3 2017 will be a fuller version that will show more of the game experience.
Bethesda have previously confirmed that teleportation-style movement will be used to reduce motion sickness symptoms. The developer has also claimed that the entirely of the original Fallout 4 game will be available within Fallout 4 VR, which adds up to a vast amount of content and many hours of gameplay.
Hines, in an interview recorded by Hip Hop Gamer at PAX East 2017 (and subsequently reported by GameRant) claimed he had been told by the lead designer that “Fallout 4 VR is the most incredible thing you’ve ever seen in your life. You can’t even imagine what it’s like playing in VR and how realistic it looks with everywhere you turn your head.”
It’s not yet clear what else will be shown at E3 by Bethesda, but most analysts are expecting a new Wolfenstein game, and the announcement of The Evil Within 2. It’s not known of the developer will announce any new VR projects.
A release date has not yet been confirmed, but Bethesda say that Fallout 4 VR will be available sometime in 2017, exclusive to the HTC Vive.
