Perhaps one of the biggest shocks during Sony’s E3 2017 press conference is that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is coming to PlayStation VR later this year. Considering that games don’t get much bigger than Bethesda’s bulky role-playing release, this should prove positive for those who’ve been waiting for some “full-length” software on the headset.
And just to confirm: it is the full Skyrim experience, complete with the Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn expansions. This means that you’ll be playing full-price for the privilege to play the title in virtual reality, as pre-orders are live at many retailers in North America and Europe now. It doesn’t sound like there’ll be an upgrade path for people who already purchased last year’s remaster on the PS4 either.
In other news, the game will support either the DualShock 4 or two PlayStation Move controllers. From what we’ve seen, locomotion appears to be handled by teleportation with the motion wands, but we assume there’ll be a variety of options in the final game.
