Last month, I reported that Bethesda’s 2017 VR title, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR would be making its way onto PC virtual reality headsets and today, the virtual reality title will be available starting tomorrow on SteamVR for $59.99.

Initially released in November 2017 for the PlayStation VR, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR allows players to return to the world of Skyrim and experience the game from a new perspective all from the comfort of your virtual reality headset. In addition to receiving the base game, Skyrim VR also includes all of the post-launch content released for it: DawnguardHearthfire, and Dragonborn.

Additionally, this marks the third Bethesda VR title announced for PC with the first one, DOOM VFRfollowed by Fallout 4 VR. Now that Skyrim VR is finally available for Steam users, those interested in knowing whether or not they can run the game can now check out the system requirements.

The game’s minimum configuration requirements are not as demanding (especially compared to DOOM VFR and Fallout 4 VR‘s minimum requirements), while the recommended specifications state that gamers need at least an NVIDIA GeForce 1070 or AMD RX Vega 64 GPU; a full rundown of the PC requirements will be provided below.

As mentioned earlier, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR is available now for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality, in addition to the PlayStation VR. For more information, check out an editorial I wrote back in November where I share my thoughts on the title.
