Hack Nazis and kill aliens with a headset on

At the Bethesda E3 2018 press conference, the company introduced two new VR experiences.

The first is Prey Typhon Hunter. Players can use their VR headsets to explore the Talos I space station as a Talos employee. Presumably, you’ll be hunting Typhons — the goopy aliens from the reimagined Prey universe.

The second is Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot, a Nazi-hunting simulator in VR. Players inhabit a hacker who can force their way into the Nazis’ war-machines, taking them over and turning them against their masters. To quote Bethesda’s vice president Pete Hines, this is part of the team’s initiative to emphasize the maxim “fuck Nazis” on every platform possible.

We don’t know much about either of these virtual reality games quite yet, including which headsets they’ll be compatible with. However, Skyrim VR — also by Bethesda — is available on Steam on HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality; it’s also available for PlayStation VR. It seems likely that these two VR experiences will appear on the same line-up of headsets.
