During Sunday night’s conference, Bethesda revealed that Fallout 4 will jump on the VR bandwagon as it’s coming to HTC Vive VR within the next 12 months.
“We think that VR is the perfect fit for truly immersive games like our massive open-world RPGs,” said Bethesda Global VP of Marketing & PR Pete Hines. “If you thought Survival Mode was an intense Fallout experience… you ain’t seen nothing yet.”
Fallout 4’s upcoming VR release is a glimpse of where Bethesda is headed with VR, further illustrating Bethesda’s drive to remain a leader in cutting edge technology – including VR – and to offer fans the best games on whatever platform they choose.
“We are thrilled to welcome the incredible world of Fallout 4 to the HTC Vive platform. Players are going to be blown away when they experience Fallout 4 VR with the full immersion offered on the Vive,” said Joel Breton, VP of VR Content for HTC.
Additionally, a VR tour of hell in Doom was also available at BE3 Plus, and will be available at Bethesda’s E3 booth for those lucky attending the yearly gaming event. The demo exhibits idTech 6’s impressive next-gen graphics and rendering.
“Since we first showed off modern VR with Doom 3 BFG at E3 2012, we have dedicated ourselves to the technology, constantly pushing ourselves forward,” Hines said.
