Bethesda announces release dates for Doom VFR, Fallout 4 VR, Skyrim VR

So the publisher chose to take advantage of the hype and has announced release dates for all three of its forthcoming VR games, including Doom VFR, Fallout 4 and Skyrim. Fortunately, this is not the case since Bethesda made a decision to confirm that Doom VFR, Fallout 4 VR and The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim VR will all come out before 2017 ends.

Today Bethesda finally announced the official release dates for all three of its upcoming VR titles.

Guns. Demons. Speed. DOOM VFR takes the core elements that define DOOM and transports them to a whole new arena. It's going to be available starting on December 1 for the PlayStation VR or PSVR and HTC Vive.

Whether you can play all three games depends on the VR headset you own. Though they were just revealed at E3 2017 back in June, rumors of a VR version of Fallout 4 had been making the rounds for months beforehand.

Fallout 4 VR lands on December 12, also on Steam. The games will get their respective headsets which will make the virtual reality situation come to life. Last but not least, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim VR will drop on November 17 and it will be exclusive to PS VR. Doom VFR isn't a remake of Doom 2016 for virtual reality, though; it's a new game with a new story and new locations.

Although the virtual reality version of Fallout 4 may show up on the PSVR or other platforms in the future, it won't happen immediately. Fallout 4 VR is available for pre-order for $59.
