Skyrim for PlayStation VR just got a new patch over the weekend that should improve visual fidelity of the game, especially on PS4 Pro consoles.
According to new patch notes by Bethesda, Skyrim PSVR Update 188.8.131.52.8 makes the following improvements to the game on PlayStation consoles:
- New main menu experience
- Globally improved visual fidelity, especially on PS4 Pro
- Increased maximum value for the height offset slider
- Bug fixes
- Changes to the PS Move controllers including: Secondary X button now moves player backwards, new option to show hands when sheathed, sheath/unsheathe is now hold secondary O, adjusted angle for spell targeting, Direct Movement Swimming now default, Realistic Bow Aiming uses both PS Move controllers, and new map interaction.
While there are big changes to how Move controllers work, the news that visual fidelity will be improved is very welcome considering how VR games mostly live and die depending on how good the visuals are in the game.
Skyrim VR is the virtual reality version of Bethesda's popular Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim title. The full game is playable in virtual reality which is super cool, when we're not getting motion-sick playing it. Tolerance to VR varies however, so give it a shot if you're not prone to motion-sickness like we are.
