Today, Maryland-based studio, Bethesda announced that it’s critically acclaimed title The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR would finally be available for PC owners.

According to the developer, the virtual reality title will be available via SteamVR starting Tuesday, April 3. This marks the third Bethesda VR title announced for PC with the first one, DOOM VFR followed by Fallout 4 VR.

Initially released in November 2017 for the PlayStation VR, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR brings the world of Skyrim to live from the comfort of your virtual reality headset. In addition to receiving the vanilla game, Skyrim VR also includes all of the post-launch content released for it: Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.

Currently, the game’s official Steam page is now live. Although the page does not display the PC configuration requirements (as of yet at least), what we do know is that the game will be $59.99 and will be playable on the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets.

For more information on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, check out an editorial I did last year, where I explain that despite the game offering a new way to experience this 2011 classic, the title has not aged very well.
