Huge Leap For VR Gaming As Bethesda Decides to Bring a Virtually Real Fallout 4
While there were a lot of mixed reviews from long-time fans and critics about the RPG factor of Bethesda’s Fallout 4, there’s no argument to the fact that it was an overall excellent game, and Bethesda aims to make it better by bringing VR to the table. That’s right folks, you can now roam the wastelands of Boston in Fallout 4 VR, which is playable for everyone at E3 this year.
Bethesda’s Peter Hines said Howard told him that, “Fallout 4 VR is the most incredible thing you’ve ever seen in your life. You can’t even imagine what it’s like, playing in VR and how realistic it looks and everywhere you turn your head. It is going to blow your mind. It is the craziest thing you’ve ever seen.”. Whether it’s true or not is something that time will tell, however considering the reputation of Bethesda Studios, it’s probable that what Todd Howard is saying would be true.
It will be released to public on HTC Vive for PC users this year itself, though there hasn’t been any mention of a specific date so far. There also hasn’t been any announcements if it would be available for other VR headsets such as the Oculus Rift or PSVR. In Hines’ personal opinion, while VR gaming is certainly exciting, it won’t be taking over as the preferred mode of gaming anytime soon, something that might be true because lots of people including Hines himself are suffering from motion sickness or heart disease that wouldn’t let them play a lot or all of the titles in store for VR.
“I personally don’t believe it’s ever going to be a thing where, ‘Oh I don’t play other things; I only play on VR,'” he said.
Hines went on to say that when he plays games at home, his wife likes to watch. If he has “some damned headset” on to play a VR game and asks his wife to watch, he said she might say, “‘What? No.'”
