Since its release in 2011, players have been wanting more and more reasons to jump back into the world of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and finally, at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2017 during Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE) press conference we finally got the official unveiling of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR. The PlayStation VR exclusive version of the beloved RPG is due for release in 2017.
Skyrim VR is a pretty exciting announcement for PlayStation VR owners – the title will be designed for use with the PS Move controllers, adding an extra level of depth and immersion as players swing swords, shoot arrows and fire magic in the most immersive way to play Skyrim yet.
We played The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR at E3 2017, and we were very impressed, saying; “It’s rare that a VR experience at a huge event such as E3 can separate you from the outside world, but The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR achieved this with ease. Any misgivings about the potential of adapting such a huge world to VR – including that of the dreaded simulation sickness – have been washed away with even just a few minutes of gameplay.”
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR will also include all of the previously released DLC for Skyrim, so fans will have plenty to dip their toes into, even if mods might not be available in the future.
