The news of a VR version of Fallout 4 has been floating around for months, but it’s becoming a concrete expectation with the announcement of its imminent appearance at this year’s E3.
Gamespot has come out with news of the “full reveal” of Fallout 4 at the 2017 Electronic Entertainment Expo, to be held on June 13 to 15, 2017, at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
The above video is an early version of Fallout 4 VR released June of last year. TheXPGamers discuss movement and gunplay as applied to VR.
There’s frankly not enough details in the video showing how VR will be implemented into the game, and for Fallout 4 gamers who’s been through the game a couple of times already, it’s difficult to imagine how the game’s open world nature will be preserved considering VR’s current difficulties with locomotion and general movement techniques.
If this hurdle is overcome though, Fallout 4 is set to be a title of special significance, with its triple A credentials, fully fleshed-out story, RPG elements and great graphics. Not to mention its cachet of influence with hardcore gamers, many of whom have not yet been able to try VR.
This is the title that will push a lot of gamers to invest in high-end VR, and if this succeeds sales-wise and in reviews, development for VR will likely further increase. I can’t wait to see Fallout 4 in VR.
