Bethesda continues to re-release Skyrim because it always sells. Fans of the gigantic RPG series are split down the middle on this decision by Bethesda. Some are happy to play Skyrim on new platforms; some are anxiously awaiting a new entry into the series.
In 2017, Skyrim saw success on both the Nintendo Switch and the Playstation VR. Both new versions of Skyrim saw incredible sales figures. Now, Bethesda is bringing the VR experience to PC players.
It is unquestionable that Skyrim is the biggest and boldest title available for PlayStation VR. Skyrim offers a VR experience unmatched by any other game. Studios that have dove head first in the VR world have been unable to make much more than quick experiences. Although many of these games are great, none can live up toe the Bethesda money maker. Most VR games are over in only a few hours; it is common for players to spend hundreds of hours in Skyrim. The entire Skyrim experience has been ported over to VR. Even if you have already played the normal version of the game countless hours, now you can explore in a way that truly immerses you in the action and story.
Bethesda has finally announced that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR will be hitting PCs in April of 2018. PC gamers have been waiting six months to get what PlayStation users got last holiday season, and now Bethesda has delivered.
In less than 24 hours after the announcement, Skyrim VR entered the top 10 on Steam purely from pre-orders.
In a surprising move, Bethesda announced that Skyrim would work with the HTC Vive. The Occulus Rift has taken over the PC VR marketm and few expected The Vive to be supported.
PC Gamers won’t have to wait much longer. In under a month’s time, gamers will once again be exploring Skyrim, looting chests, killing dragons, settling civil war, and interferring with the Aldmeri Dominion.
Skyrim VR comes to PC on April 3rd.
