Bethesda Announces Release Dates for Fallout 4 VR, Skyrim VR, and Doom VFR (UPDATED)

The HTC Vive and PlayStation VR release dates for Bethesda's big three virtual reality titles have been released. One of them doesn't seem to be coming to console.

August 22, 2017

Since E3 2017, we’ve known that Bethesda has three major Virtual Reality experiences on their way: Skyrim VR, Fallout 4 VR, and Doom VR. Today, the company announced the release dates for all three.

First on the docket is Fallout 4 VR, arriving solely on HTC Vive on December 12. When the game was announced, there was no mention of a console release. According to a tweet issued by HTC, we can expect to see this title release exclusively on Vive.

Coming to PlayStation VR on November 17, and HTC Vive later in 2018, we have Skyrim VR, which appears to be a complete virtual experience set in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and including all DLC for the title such as Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.


Lastly, on December 1, Doom VFR will release on both PlayStation VR and HTC Vive. This title is a brand new Doom experience made for VR.

Most recently, a new Doom VFR video was released, detailing many of the game’s differences from the 2016 Doom title, including its core gameplay, environments, and plot.

Update: HTC Vive has since tweeted a new statement, indicating that the word “exclusive” was incorrectly used in its original tweet about Fallout 4 VR. The original version of this article also incorrectly reflected the Fallout 4 VR release date. It has since been updated to show a December 12 release on HTC Vive.
