At the Sony conference on Monday, the company revealed a few new surprises for PSVR players. Sony was showing off a couple of spectacular trailers when everything went dark again and the Playstation VR headset came on screen. Then the following trailer started with that iconic Dragonborn song we all now know so well. At the end, in big letters for everyone to see, stood Skyrim VR. And the crowd went wild.
Bethesda did later confirm that the full game will release this November and will be a full port of the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim game. Including the DLC’s Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn. No other information about the game was revealed besides the trailer – so at this point, we don’t know if it’s a PSVR exclusive. But it probably is since the game was revealed at Sony’s conference specifically and not at Bethesda’s conference yesterday where they showed Fallout 4 VR and Doom VFR.
Check out the trailer below:
Bethesda is certainly on a roll this E3 with announcements about porting their existing games into VR. But while the news about Skyrim VR may have been met with applause in the theater at E3, the internet has already become a little more divided on the subject. Many people are asking that Bethesda should “stop milking the Skyrim cow and move on” while others are quite happy to be getting the chance to face dragons in VR.
While the trailer doesn’t reveal too much VR-specific information – and basically looks like the original Skyrim in first-person – we do see two floating hands which indicates that the game will in all likelihood work with the Playstation Move controllers.
We’ll keep you up to date on any further developments. Let us know how you feel about Skyrim coming to VR.
