The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR Released

Steam News announces the release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, which brings Bethesda's RPG into the world of virtual reality. This supports Oculus Rift as well as HTC Vive, which is a surprise since Fallout 4 VR and Doom VFR do not officially support Oculus, which we presume is due to the ongoing legal battle between Bethesda and Oculus. Here's word on the game:
A true, full-length open-world game for VR has arrived from award-winning developers, Bethesda Game Studios. Skyrim VR reimagines the complete epic fantasy masterpiece with an unparalleled sense of scale, depth, and immersion. From battling ancient dragons to exploring rugged mountains and more, Skyrim VR brings to life a complete open world for you to experience any way you choose. Skyrim VR includes the critically-acclaimed core game and official add-ons – Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.

Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel and the future of the Empire hangs in the balance. As Dragonborn, the prophesied hero born with the power of The Voice, you are the only one who can stand amongst them.

Sadly they need a way to play it while sitting.

Also can you use mods with it?

Bethesda said nope. :(

They said no, but people seem to have it working.

Is this at least the remake version, with the 64 bit engine, better graphics, etc? (judging by the trailer, yes.)

So many new versions which improve graphics. Why not invest a few hours and fix the gameplay design, specifically the progress and combat difficulty? You reach max level far too easily and since the combat in general is very simple and easy, its just a boring game and all massive content becomes useless.

There's a mod for that.

Careful, you might upset the fanboys with that logical and very reasonable comment. This is my #1 beef with all bethesda games.

Pricing out the Vive Pro out of curiosity. Did you know that it is CHEAPER to buy the Vive and then the Vive Pro than just the pro and the 2 base stations and 2 controllers? $499 vs $529.96. (Base model vs 2 base stands and 2 controllers)

NM. Vive just bundled and made them cheaper.

Oh yeah, navigating Skyrim GUI in VR? hahahahahahahahaaaa

It's not as bad as FO4, IMO. Mods do work, so I'm hoping someone cleans the UI up a bit. I only played for about an hour last night. So far so good. Lots of VR options.

Oculus Rift has now overtaken HTC Vive in sales, which would explain why the Oculus badge has returned. Maximising sales overrides grudges in corporateland.

I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.

Wouldn't it be cool if it came with a VR sword controller?

Also, mods could affect framerate, which could lead to a suboptimal experience. Not saying they should be banned, but just user beware.

Looks like they're using the new graphic engine for this. Gonna need a hefty PC and brand new top end graphics card to run this smoothly, IMO.

Also looks from the trailer that some of the combat at least is from a static, non-moving position to avoid motion sickness.

Also, $60? Ouch.

FO4:VR has been a lot of fun....but required quite a few .ini tweaks. Hopefully Skyrim will be a little more optimized when it hits Steam.
