Fallout 4, Skyrim and DOOM VR Versions Officially Dated

Fallout 4, Skyrim and DOOM VR Versions Officially Dated

This will then be followed by Fallout 4 VR, which will launch on December 12th for HTC Vive. Fallout is exclusive to the HTC Vive, Skyrim is exclusive to the PlayStation VR, and Doom will be available for both the Vive and PSVR. Rather than disappoint headset hopefuls with a last-minute delay, the company has gone ahead and announced firm release dates for all three. While it's likely that at least one of the three games will flutter out to another platform, we at Ars Technica would bet cacodemons to cacodonuts that Bethesda has no intention of releasing a game on an Oculus-branded platform anytime soon. It's fairly easy to imagine how all three will play in VR, though Doom VFR in particular should be a very intense affair. According to a post on the Bethesda blog Skyrim VR will lead the pack, as it will be landing on PlayStation VR on November 17.

They'll also get to try out Doom VFR when it debuts on December 1, though that game will also launch on the HTC Vive at the same time.

The biggest beef for VR gamers is the lack of, well, VR games. There has been no official confirmation on what other platforms the title may be heading to, but most analysts are predicting that it will come to Oculus Rift at some point, giving HTC Vive a timed exclusive. This year at Bethesda's E3 2017 press conference, the publisher announced that Fallout 4 VR would arrive before the end of the year. For attendees, the event is scheduled to take place between August 24 and 27 at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center.
