You can play the VR version of Fallout 4 from next year
Bethesda CMO Pete Hines just dropped an atomic bombshell in the company’s annual Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) on Sunday night. The company is going to release a VR version of the post-apocalyptic RPG Fallout 4 for HTC Vive in 2017, allowing the users to travel the Wastelands surrounding post-nuke Boston with their feet.
Hines announced this transformation as a part of company’s growing virtual reality initiative, mentioning how the first ignitions of modern VR appeared at E3 2012, running Doom 3. The company has worked in gumboot on other VR projects since then.
However, the game will take some adaptation. Fallout 4’s conversation interface which is just covered by text in the current game, need to be tweaked, and it’s still not sure how Vive’s motion controller will be used in this game. Also, it’s a matter of concern how the motion sickness that might happen when someone moving long distances very fast will be dealt by Bethesda. However, as the game already has a diegetic interface in the Pip-Boy, it could easily be nailed onto the player’s Vive controller.
Besides Fallout 4, the company is also offering Doom in VR, which will give you “a virtual tour of hell.” It’s still not sure whether the actual game is coming as it looks like more of a content rather than a game.
