Skyrim VR, Fallout 4 VR, and DOOM VFR All Get 2017 Release Dates

PSVR owners, you're going to have to wait on Fallout 4 VR for a bit.

Bethesda wants you to stuff its biggest releases right in your face, and if you're going to QuakeCon 2017, you can try before you buy.

QuakeCon, which runs from August 24 through August 27, offers attendees a chance to try out Bethesda's upcoming VR titles: Skyrim VR, DOOM VFR, and Fallout 4 VR. If you can't make it to the show, cheer up. All three titles now have official release dates. Just wait a little longer, and the VR goodness will be yours.

The games' release dates are:

  • Skyrim VR – November 17 2017 for PSVR
  • DOOM VFR – December 1 2017 for PSVR and HTC Vive
  • Fallout 4 – December 12 2017 for HTC Vive

There was some confusion and dismay last night when the official HTC Vive Twitter account stated that Fallout 4 VR will be released "exclusively on the $599 @htcvive on Dec 12th." Bethesda quickly released a follow-up tweet to assure PSVR owners that Fallout 4 VR "arrives FIRST on @htcvive on 12/12, but we still want to support as many platforms as possible."

So regardless of which headset you own, you'll get your chance to put your face right up against a Deathclaw's maw and smooch it. If you're a PSVR owner, you just need to contain yourself – probably into 2018.
