With Fallout 4 VR‘s release date right around the corner, yesterday developer Bethesda Game Studios unveiled a new video as well as the PC requirements for the upcoming virtual reality game.

The less than six-minute long video features Fallout 4 VR‘s Lead Producer Andrew Scharf and Community Manager Jess Finster, and the duo is shown throughout the video provides a walkthrough of the early stages of the game, giving several tips and tricks, as well as giving us an overview on the game’s controls.

In addition to an introduction/tutorial video, the developer has also revealed the PC requirements needed to run the title. Unlike its non-VR counterpart, Fallout 4 VR requires much more powerful hardware; a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070/AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 or better as your minimum GPU requirements. Of course, if you are an avid virtual reality gamer on your PC, you are set to run the game, even if it is in minimum settings. However, those looking to invest in a VR headset, you’re going to need to update your graphics card before you can dive into the virtual reality wasteland.
