Fans may have caught wind of a Fallout 4 VR (virtual reality) platform, and it looks like such a venture will soon be a reality. Recent news has revealed that a demo for the upcoming VR platform of the game will be made available at Bethesda’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2017 press conference. This will mark a better hands-on glimpse that the company will have of the anticipated VR title to the public.
Fallout 4 VR: Too Good To Be True?
While a VR game for the post-apocalyptic video game series might seem to be too far-fetched an idea, signs point to a definite yes on having such a concept come into fruition. According to Pete Hines, Bethesda’s vice president of PR and marketing, the VR version of Fallout 4 “is the most incredible thing you’ve ever seen in your life. You can’t imagine what it’s like playing in VR and how realistic it looks with everywhere you turn your head.”
As per Hip Hop Gamer’s interview at PAX East 2017, Hines commented that the game and its VR adaptation make for “the craziest thing you’ve ever seen.”
Despite Hines’ promising remarks on the upcoming title, it seems there is still little for fans to be excited about, considering that so little information has been revealed regarding the forthcoming game, regardless of its VR capabilities or otherwise.
How VR Will Work In Fallout 4
Though there is a lack of information shedding light on what to expect from the VR title’s gameplay, Bethesda has promised a teleportation feature to aid those suffering from nausea caused by gameplay in first-person VR mode. Though teleporting might take away from the game’s experience, walking to and fro will still be made available in the game, albeit in small doses so as to regulate movement.
Fallout 4 VR is expected to hit the HTC Vive sometime this 2017.
