Sony has announced a new PlayStation VR bundle that includes The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim VR. The bundle will retail for $449.99 and include the newest version of the PSVR headset, the PlayStation Camera peripheral, two Move controllers and a disk with 13 PSVR demos.

The new product is referred to as the PlayStation VR Skyrim VR Bundle.

In August of this year, Sony formally dropped the price of the PSVR. Since that time, the best value has been at the $449.99 price point for a bundle including the virtual reality headset, camera, a pair of PlayStation Move controllers and a copy of PlayStation VR Worlds. The headset and camera are still available for $399.99.

Skyrim VR is the entirety of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, including the game’s three add-ons — Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn — but remastered for virtual reality. It was announced for the PS4 at this year’s E3 in Los Angeles. Bethesda Game Studios is also working on a version for the HTC Vive, but no release date has been given.

Bethesda Softworks has several other VR games in the pipeline. Doom VFR will be out on PSVR and HTC Vive on Dec. 1, while Fallout VR will be out for the Vive on Dec. 12.
