gamescom Media News PlayStation Trailers

Two rather exciting titles have straddled the top of the PSVR store for a while now with nothing but a ‘pre-order’ place holder and a price – DOOM VFR and Skyrim VR – priced at £19.99 and £49.99 respectively. At Gamescom, Bethesda has confirmed a release date for two of the most anticipated VR games.

The Elder Scrolls will launch first on November 17, 2017 followed by DOOM VFR December 1, 2017.

Skyrim VR features the same gameplay as the standard edition, including all DLC content, whereas DOOM is a standalone game built specifically for virtual reality

“I really encourage anybody who wants a fast-paced combat experience to look at DOOM VFR,” adds Game Director Marty Stratton. “It’s going to be different than a lot of the stuff they play in VR. Everybody at id is just thrilled to be bringing DOOM to VR.”
