Bethesda has announced that Skryrim VR will be coming to Steam on April 3rd.
Skyrim VR, which originally launched on PSVR late last year, sees Bethesda's classic open-world fantasy epic rejigged and reworked for virtual reality headsets. As was the case on PSVR, the Steam version of Skyrim VR will include the celebrated base game, alongside the newly VR-ified Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn expansions.
Skyrim is pretty ubiquitous at this point in time, having appeared on six different platforms and in three different guises since its release in 2011 - but Bethesda's thorough virtual reality update, which includes support for VR controllers, is easily one of its most impressive.
Eurogamer's Ian Higton recently sang Skyrim VR's praises in his guide to the 15 best PSVR games you can play on your system. "Most VR games have an impressive sense of scale to them", he said, "but Skyrim's incredible vistas, huge temples and labyrinthine dungeons feel so vast that you can't help but stop every so often just to take it all in."
Skyrim VR is compatible with any headset that supports Steam VR, and will set you back Ł39.99 when it releases on April 3rd. And as Ian likes to put it, "What other games out there allow you to physically bop an actual dragon on the head with an enchanted broadsword?"
