Skyrim VR Is Coming to Stream This April Jarren Navarrete

Today Bethesda announced that the PC version of Skyrim VR will hit SteamVR on April 3rd. However, these processes are typically reserved for the more tech-savvy users, and native Steam support will open the door for players that are just testing the waters of VR, or don't have any experience in modding the game.

Bethesda is continuing its releases of VR-specific version of some of its most popular games.

Hines also explained why Skyrim specifically went to PS4 while Fallout 4 VR released on PC.

Though we're almost seven years removed from its original debut, Skyrim refuses to die, and this SteamVR makes three re-releases for the title within the last year (with PSVR and the Nintendo Switch version). If you wish to pre-purchase it right now, you can pay $60 and have it ready to play on launch day! Skyrim VR seemed like the ideal candidate for an eventual Steam release, but up until today, Bethesda has kept quiet on such a port. It includes the base game and the Dawnguard, Dragonborn and Hearthfire expansions.

If you're wondering why Skyrim VR was exclusive to the PSVR initially, Bethesda's Head of PR and Marketing Pete Hine, explained the reasoning behind the decision to Player.One at last year's QuakeCon. Soon you can experience the breathtaking scale of Skyrim in virtual reality on SteamVR.

Skyrim VR will be something that's instantly familiar to those who are already well acquainted with the standard version.

Skyrim VR will be playable using the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets, and will be available on April 3 via Steam with a $59.99 price tag.
