Fallout 4 VR Drops New Gameplay Footage, PC Specs Revealed


With Skyrim VR now available, and several AAA projects in the works currently, Bethesda still has one more confirmed virtual reality experience on the way: Fallout 4 VR. The developer team just released a brand new gameplay video to showcase what the new experience will be like, and how players can take the role of Sole Survival to an entirely different level. In addition to the new footage, PC fans also have an idea on whether their set up is equipped spec-wise. Here's everything you need to know about Fallout VR.

The video itself, seen above, isn't the longest footage revealed, but it does feature the Lead Producer, Andrew Scharf, and Community Manager, Jess Finster, discussing the different stages of the upcoming title:

"With the power of VR, you’ll be able to get up-close-and-personal with the dangers of a post-apocalyptic world as you fight for survival. Featuring new combat, crafting and building systems fully reimagined for VR – including VR-enhanced V.A.T.S. and a variety of gameplay options including direct movement– Fallout 4 VR isn’t just a jaunt through the Wasteland, it’s the entire game. The whole world is fully explorable. That includes hundreds of locations, characters and quests. This is your opportunity to step into the Wasteland and experience Fallout 4 in a whole new way."
