Bethesda Softworks today revealed that Fallout 4 for HTC Vive VR headsets will be released within the next 12 months.
At BE3 Plus, attendees were given a taste of what’s to come, exploring the world of Fallout 4, using the game’s Pip-Boy and interacting with Dogmeat – all in virtual reality. The demo will also be playable at Bethesda’s E3 booth (South Hall, #1647).
“We think that VR is the perfect fit for truly immersive games like our massive open-world RPGs,” said Bethesda Global VP of Marketing & PR Pete Hines. “If you thought Survival Mode was an intense Fallout experience… you ain’t seen nothing yet.”
In addition to offering a demo of Fallout 4, a VR tour of hell in DOOM was also available at BE3 Plus, and will be available at Bethesda’s E3 booth. The demo exhibits idTech 6’s impressive next-gen graphics and rendering.
“Since we first showed off modern VR with DOOM 3 BFG at E3 2012, we have dedicated ourselves to the technology, constantly pushing ourselves forward,” Hines said.
