Fallout 4 VR Coming for This Year’s E3 Conference
Bethesda recently announced that the virtual reality version of Fallout 4 will be available for anyone to test it on the show floor at the 2017 E3 conference. This year, for the first time ever, the E3 will be open to the public.
Fallout 4 in Virtual Reality is Highly Anticipated
Pete Hines from Bethesda confirmed the news talked about the VR version of the game, which was announced last year together with the VR version of Doom. Hines claims he doesn’t play Virtual Reality games too often due to VR nausea, but game director Todd Howard told him some encouraging news.
Howard told Hines 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 and everywhere you turn your head. It is going to blow your mind. It is the craziest thing you’ve ever seen.”
So far we know that Fallout 4 VR will be launched this year for the HTC Vive, however, the exact release date is still unknown. It also remains unclear if the VR version of this game will be available for other VR headsets such as the Oculus Rift and the PlayStation VR.
Hines feels optimistic about VR growing in popularity, but he does not imagine it taking over or replacing traditional video gaming platforms.
“I personally don’t believe it’s ever going to be a thing where ‘Oh I don’t play other things; I only play on VR.'” Said Hines.
Even though Hines does not feel particularly comfortable wearing a VR headset, he has no doubt that Virtual Reality will grow and expand in prominence and popularity.
