Have you ever wondered what it might be like to live in a nuclear wasteland where you’d have to fight off mutants and monsters, while wearing a suit of armor and with a loyal dog by your side? We guess the closest thing you could get to that experience would be in Bethesda’s Fallout, which is about to get a lot more real thanks to the launch of Fallout 4 VR.
We know that Fallout 4 would be getting a VR treatment as it was confirmed that the game would be making its debut at E3 2017, and sure enough it has as you can see in the launch trailer above. According to Bethesda, “With the power of VR, you’ll be able to get up-close-and-personal with the dangers of a post-apocalyptic world as you fight for survival.”
“Featuring new combat, crafting and building systems fully reimagined for VR – including VR-enhanced V.A.T.S. – Fallout 4 VR isn’t just a jaunt through the Wasteland, it’s the entire game. The whole world is fully explorable. That includes hundreds of locations, characters and quests. This is your opportunity to step into the Wasteland and experience Fallout 4 in a whole new way.”
Basically it’s Fallout 4 but in a virtual reality space which would allow gamers to experience the game in an entirely different and more immersive way. The game will be launched on the PC and the HTC Vive VR headset this coming October, and while we haven’t tried it for ourselves, the folks at AMD had previously called it a “groundbreaking, industry changing” game.
