Bethesda, at the beginning of the E3 2017, revealed Elder Scrolls would get an expansion: a strategy card game titled Elder Scrolls Legends: Heroes of Skyrim for iOS and Android. The company also announced Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to launch for Nintendo Switch. Now, in the presentation held by Sony, we have more Elder Scrolls news and this time, it’s about its Virtual Reality (VR) version, Skyrim VR.
Sony has collaborated with Bethesda and is launching Elder Scroll V: Skyrim for the PlayStation VR. In the press-conference, Sony showcased a trailer of the VR version of the game that featured first-person combat. Skyrim VR is all set to take the original game up a few notches. The company said Skyrim VR “reimagines the complete epic fantasy with an unparalleled sense of scale, depth and immersion.”
All of the existing features of the original game including the add-ons – HearthFire, Dragonborn and Dawnguard – will be present in the PlayStation VR version of Elder Scrolls.
The release dates were not confirmed by either Sony or Bethesda, so we really can’t say when the game will be available. There are rumors Skyrim VR won’t launch before 2018 as Bethesda is already working on other VR projects that are scheduled to come out this year including Doom VFR and Fallout 4 VR, both announced at the E3 as well.
