Fallout 4 VR: Bethesda Says Experience Will “Blow Your Mind”
We’ve known for a while that Bethesda was planning to bring the post-apocalyptic world of Fallout 4 to the VR landscape. The teased game was first announced at last year’s E3 event and subsequently revealed to be heading to the HTC Vive when it eventually releases. As Fallout is Bethesda’s most popular franchise, it’s not surprising that fans are foaming at the mouth to be immersed in the game’s Wasteland. Bethesda’s Pete Hines seemingly validated this hype in a recent interview at PAX East with Hip Hop Gamer, where the VP paraphrased game director Todd Howard’s mind-blowing experience with Fallout 4 VR:
“Fallout 4 VR is the most incredible thing you’ve ever seen in your life. You can’t even imagine what it’s like, playing in VR and how realistic it looks and everywhere you turn your head. It is going to blow your mind. It is the craziest thing you’ve ever seen.”
The Bethesda executive also expressed that he feels confident virtual reality will grow in popularity when given enough time, but not to the extent it replaces traditional gaming. One reason for this could be that playing in the format for too long is known to make players disoriented. Hines himself admitted he personally doesn’t play VR games often because of his own sensitivity to motion sickness, though it doesn’t seem sway his enthusiasm for virtual reality.
Fallout 4 VR was stated by Hines to be shown off at Bethesda’s E3 press conference in June. No specific release date for the game has been set, but Bethesda could be saving that specific announcement for the well-publicized Expo.
