Skyrim VR Out Now For PlayStation VR!

Skyrim VR Out Now For PlayStation VR!

Bethesda’s VR version of the widely-popular, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim  open world, action-RPG, is out today for Sony’s PlayStation VR system.

Skyrim – In Your Face!

Skyrim VR  is essentially Skyrim,  but you can now Fus Ro Dah in true, first-person! And this version includes all previously released DLCs like “Dawnguard”, “Hearthfire” and “Dragonborn”.

Movements can be controlled by using either a DS4 gamepad or with PS Move controllers. Unfortunately, you won’t actually be able to command spells by yelling, at least not right now.

Bethesda is currently looking for ways to implement voice commands into the game. But has not stated as to when that will be available.

As for those who are interested, but lack the VR console, there’s a Skyrim PS VR bundle that comes with everything you need to begin your adventure.

For more on VR, HTC has this an upcoming Vive VR & Fallout 4 VR  bundle. And you can also check out this in-depth article on the current state of the VR trend.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR  is now available on the PlayStation VR.

    Have you tried it? I kind of want to but don’t have the cash to. I’ve never even used a VR console such as the HTC or Oculus. Another question how does it run?

    From what I’ve seen, it runs very well. Bethesda did a good job making Skyrim VR. Granted it’s the 7th or 8th release of the same game, but hey.

    If it didn’t cost so much to get the VR gear plus the game, I’d be more interested.

    I’m probably going to get this for Xmas :)

    Ok, I loved Skyrim so much that when it came out in Nov 2011, I put Dark Souls 1 away, and for the next full year I played Skyrim first on PS3 and then on X360. I’m not going to get the VR because I get motion sickness but I did get the Switch version. I forced myself to finish BotW-and the end boss was hard because I suck, so I could retire the little card and pop in Skyrim.

    The remaster looks pretty good on Switch.

    I have been playing the remaster on PS4 and really like it, although I don’t have tons of time to play. I have the VR Skyrim edition too… and I have to say it’s been horribly disappointing.

    It looks so terrible! Like really so terrible. The graphics re awful, like something out of ps2 game or a pvp. Not the "immersive" experience at all when everything is pixelated and you think your eyesight is going bad.

    Besides that, walking down a hill is so sickening xD

    The VR version has terrible graphics? Why though? That’s just awful.

    I’m curious about how the controls work. Do those move controller thingies let you move your character’s hands independently? How does aiming spells and attacking with a weapon work?

  7. Avatar Fexelea says:

    The problem is the VR headset isn’t HD, and in order to make the responsiveness or whatever they reduced the resolution further. It’s awful I can’t explain how disappointed I am.
    The initial impression was great – the sitting on the cart made me feel like I was right next to the other prisoners!

    But Soon after I stood up, the character models suddendly have absurdly short legs, and the world is just… out of focus. I have good vision so I throught the screen had fogged up, or maybe there was something in my eyes… but nope” rel=”nofollow
