Fans of The Elder Scrolls aren't short of routes into the world of Skyrim and come November 17 there'll be one more: PlayStation VR.
The VR variant of the widely popular The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the new title was announced at Sony's E3 2017 press conference in June.
Skyrim comes to PSVR this month, and if you're interested in experiencing the acclaimed open-world RPG in VR but have yet to pick up the headset, a new bundle will give you everything you need to jump in. No word on an European Union bundle just yet. Victor of more than 200 Game of the Year awards, Skyrim®VR includes the critically-acclaimed core game and all official add-ons - Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.
Until now, the majority of VR games have been rather short in terms of length but Skyrim VR is the full open-world Skyrim adventure you'll find on any other platform. This isn't a major improvement over last year's edition, only including a few small but appreciated updates such as high-dynamic range (HDR) passthrough for traditional PSVR games and some aesthetical refinements like improved earphone input.
I readily make it known in just about every post dealing with VR headsets, VR games, and VR apps that I'm not much of a fan of VR; I'll get into the reasons later. If it's something we can figure out as a possibility we'll let everybody know, but right now Skyrim VR is everything that's in the base game plus all the DLC content. There's also new HDR pass-through on the processing unit so you don't have to fumble around with the cables to achieve that feature from your PS4 to your TV. It's worth noting that while the game can be played using the bundled Move controllers, it's also possible to play using the standard DualShock 4. "For those who have yet to play Skyrim, you are in for massive treat".
