The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the best games I've ever played in my 30+ years as a gamer, even with its questionable performance on the Nintendo Switch. But on the PC? In 60FPS? And now in VR? OMG.

Yeah, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now fully playable in the world of virtual reality on the PC and it seems to be quite the experience. BSoD Gaming has an extensive video with someone playing through Breath of the Wild in VR and seriously, it makes me want to play through it again in VR.

The team used an Intel Core i7-8700K, 16GB of RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti to pull it off -- with far more than 60FPS average in Breath of the Wild in VR goodness. There will be fixes made along the way, but for now the experience is all that you want -- the world that Nintendo built in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was already mind-blowingly gorgeous, and that is only amplified in VR by the looks of things.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
