You’ve got to hand it to Bethesda; when it comes to VR, they’re not messing around. After announcing that three of their highest-selling games would be coming to VR at this year’s E3, they’ve just made another bold move to put as many people in headsets as possible.
Starting October 2nd, every purchase of an HTC Vive will come with a free copy of Fallout 4 VR. Since the game is going for a retail price of $60, it’s fair to say that this is a pretty sweet deal. Issuing a statement on the decision, Vive Studios’ Joel Breton had this to say,
“The promise of a game with near endless content, including hundreds of locations, characters, and quests, fully playable in VR, is something that we have been focused on providing for the VR gaming community. We are now thrilled to provide this incredible game to new Vive owners and eagerly look forward to game’s launch on Vive this December.”
Fallout 4 VR is set for a December 12 release date. It promises to bring the entire experience of the original game to a VR setting, with some minor functionality changes. It will be the last of Bethesdas trio of VR re-releases, following Skyrim VR, on November 17, and Doom VFR, on December 1. These games stand as just another stage of Bethesda’s plan to since to suck players into an inescapably engrossing digital world, which they initiated with Oblivion, back in 2006.
