Fallout 4 Will Definitely Get A Taste Of VR

Fallout 4 Will Definitely Get A Taste Of VR

At the E3 conference, Bethesda had announced that they were going to bring Fallout 4 to the realm of virtual reality, and it seems like the ambitious project is already underway.

In an interview with Glixel, when asked whether they were trying to put all of Fallout 4 in VR, Todd Howard said, “We definitely are. That’s the promise of VR, being in a big virtual world. The core experience, meaning you put on the headset and you’re standing in the world of Fallout and can go where you want, just that little bit is every bit as cool as you hope it would be. Once we did that, we were like, “OK, we gotta see where this goes.” ”

He goes on to say how the potential market in VR is not much of a concern for them, “We’re not so worried about how many we’re going to sell or what the market is. That will all sort itself out. We have an opportunity to make something really unique. We’d rather do that than make some other tiny experience. I don’t think that’s what people want from us.”

In a way, he’s right. A complete Fallout 4 in VR (though it may not be Bethesda’s best game) is bound to sell a lot of copies, and might even end up driving some headset sales in the process. Not to mention that this is probably one of the biggest undertakings by the studio, and will definitely test the possibilities and limitations of virtual reality. Who knows, as far as gaming is concerned, how Fallout 4 turns out in the end may just decide the fate of VR.

No concrete details are out yet, but the HTC Vive version of Fallout 4 is rumored to be out in 2017.
