There has been much talk about a Fallout 4 VR version and Bethesda has confirmed that we will get a peek at it during this year’s E3. The massive success of Fallout 4 has resulted in a lot of players being hyped for a VR version.




AMD has also taken interest in Bethesda’s decision for a VR version of Fallout 4 and their Corporate Vice President spoke about it during the VR World Congress. Roy Taylor had a lot of good stuff to say about Fallout 4 VR and he also said that it will be change the industry for the better comparing it to the likes of Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog.

Most VR versions of AAA games consist of a certain part of the game that highlights VR functions. However, Bethesda has confirmed that Fallout 4 VR will comprise of the entire game with no gameplay functionality stripped down.



Bethesda’s director and executive producer, Todd Howard, said that it will be the whole game but in VR, and that it is going to come out soon

“It’s going great. It’s definitely the right game for us to do “

He also talked about locomotion being an issue in VR games and that they are doing their best to avoid or minimize the problem. He also mentioned that Fallout 4 will have support for Xbox One Scorpio along with the equally amazing Skyrim.




He said that it is routine that their games get updated for newer hardware as it is done quite often with PC and recently the PS4 Pro. It will be patched for the Xbox One Scorpio as it is released.

Fallout 4 in VR is going to be a pretty amazing experience and I believe that it is going to define the future for VR gaming on consoles. As always let us know your opinions by commenting in the comments section below.

      here’s hoping everyone starts sneaking in some multithreading into their games seeing how amd brought it to an acceptable price-range .

      Here’s hoping that Bethesda does actual work and makes the game run at the necessary 90+ FPS at hardware cheaper than ultra high end stuff, like not hardcoding the physics to framerate.
