The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2017 hasn’t disappointed this week with plenty of virtual reality (VR) news, one of the biggest being the confirmation of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR for Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE) PlayStation VR. Due out later this year for the headset, owners can now pre-order their copy on PlayStation.Store.
Available for £49.99 GBP/ $59.99 USD, the UK store listing also has a release date of 22nd December 2017 – the US store has it as 31st December 2017. With the discrepancy it’s most likely that these dates are merely placeholders – although the UK store listing would put it prime time for the festive period. The other reason to doubt these dates is the fact that Bethesda has already said The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR will be coming to PlayStation VR in November.
VRFocus previewed The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, saying: “It’s rare that a VR experience at a huge event such as E3 can separate you from the outside world, but The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR achieved this with ease. Any misgivings about the potential of adapting such a huge world to VR – including that of the dreaded simulation sickness – have been washed away with even just a few minutes of gameplay.”
When The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR does arrive later this year gamers will not only be treated to the core gameplay experience but also add-ons, Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.
As Bethesda releases further details on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, VRFocus will bring you the latest details.
