Skyrim VR is coming to Steam next month

Bethesda brings PSVR chart-topper Skyrim VR to SteamVR PCs on April 3 Skyrim VR releases on Steam next month for $60

Bethesda is continuing its releases of VR-specific version of some of its most popular games. Bethesda hasn't yet mentioned if Fallout 4 VR will follow suit and jump to PSVR.

If you were jealous of all that action PlayStation VR players had the chance to get while playing Skyrim all this time then you can rejoice.

Skyrim VR was once a PS4-exclusive, but will jump to PCs via Steam on April 3.

Life can be uncertain, but you can always rely on Bethesda finding a new way for players to experience Skyrim. Bethesda's re-release approach with Skyrim: Special Edition and the new Creation Club mod storefront see the devs branching out even more, and it shouldn't be surprising that their VR ports will come to more than a single platform. Skyrim VR will be available starting April 3rd of next month.

With the game coming to HTC Vive, Windows Mixed Reality and Oculus VR, it becomes possible for it to get better graphics as well, because both these run on PCs and are not limited by the default specs of a PlayStation. If you wish to pre-purchase it right now, you can pay $60 and have it ready to play on launch day! The base game plus its three DLCs (Dawnguard, Dragonborn and Hearthfire) will all be fully implemented in the VR version; the only thing that will really be different are the controls and the perspective, obviously.

Skyrim VR will be something that's instantly familiar to those who are already well acquainted with the standard version.
