Fallout 4 coming to HTC Vive by June 2017 (update)

Doom and Fallout 4 are both playable at E3 in VR

At the company's BE3 showcase for this year's E3, Bethesda announced that it is experimenting with adding VR support to its existing titles. The publisher will debut its efforts at the show with special VR demos for this year's Doom reboot and Fallout 4.

In addition, Bethesda has committed to releasing updates for Fallout 4 next year adding full VR support to the game via Valve and HTC's Vive VR headset.

Update: Bethesda announced June 14 that the HTC Vive version of Fallout 4 will be released "within the next 12 months" — that is, no later than June 2017.

"We think that VR is the perfect fit for truly immersive games like our massive open-world RPGs," said Pete Hines, Bethesda's global vice president of marketing and public relations, in a press release. "If you thought Survival Mode was an intense Fallout experience... you ain't seen nothing yet."
