Virtual Reality is undoubtedly the next forefront for interactive experiences, but when it comes to gaming, the platform still lacks a critical success point: a killer app. The Xbox had Halo, the PS4 has Horizon: Zero Dawn, Uncharted 4--but what does VR have? Right now gamers don't have a specific game that will push VR headset sales. Bethesda aims to change that with Fallout 4 VR.
Bethesda wants to bring the entire wasteland into virtual reality by porting Fallout 4's full game into VR. Most of the time VR ports have bits and pieces of their full game counterparts, but Capcom made strides by releasing Resident Evil 7's full port onto PlayStation VR, and Bethesda might do the same.
"I talked to Todd the other day and I was like, 'Hey how's Fallout 4 [VR] coming?' and he said, 'Pete, 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 with everywhere you turn your head. It's gonna blow your mind. It's the craziest thing you've ever seen," Bethesda's Pete Hines told HipHop Gamer in a recent interview at PAX 2017.
