Bethesda has three big virtual reality game releases arriving in the coming weeks, but you’re going to need the official candles if you want the full sensory experience.
Note: If you purchase one of the awesome products featured below, we may earn a small commission from the retailer.
First off, let’s talk about the games themselves. Skyrim VR is available to pre-order now for Playstation VR with a release date of November 17th. It can also be purchased as part of a Playstation VR bundle if you're new to the platform. Fallout VR is available to pre-order here with a release date set for December 31st. The game also comes packaged with every HTC Vive purchase. Finally, Doom VFR can be pre-ordered here for Playstation VR with a ship date of December 1st. Skyrim and Doom are both 20-percent off during the pre-order period if you’re an Amazon Prime member.
If you want to take these games to the next level, Bethesda has launched a line of official candles that add a olfactory element to your VR experience. Currently, versions for Fallout and Skyrim are available in limited quantities (no word yet on whether or not a Doom candle will be added into the mix). The Fallout candle is available here, and features a refreshing “nuclear decay scent”. The Skyrim candle is available here with a “forest of Skyrim” scent. UPDATE: If these candles are sold out, you can also get them on Amazon: Skyrim candle / Fallout candle.
Both candles provide about 25-hours of burn time, which should be enough to get you deeply immersed into these games. Now all you need is a mug of mead or a bottle of official Nuka Cola Quantum (which is just repackaged Jones Soda Berry Lemonade) to get all of your senses involved.
