What is Fallout 4 VR ?
Fallout 4 VR is The Main game in Bethesda’s new “Remade For VR” Line-up and yes it is the Full Fallout 4, but in VR Form, Bethesda Promised that,
“Everything you love about the original PC game, including the gory gun-play, the crafting, and the thrilling story-line, is here, but you’ll get to experience it with the Vive on your head, motion controllers in your hand, and your VR space to move around in”.
That sounds awesome How do i get it ?
Fallout 4 VR is available for pre-order on Steam for about $60, and is often found on sale. Considering the amount of work that has gone into turning Fallout 4 into a VR experience, this price is totally expected and not anti-consumer in any way.
Fallout 4 VR is expected to release December 1, 2017. It will initially be available exclusively for the HTC Vive, but it’s expected that anyone with a working brain out there will quickly have it working for Oculus Rift. As for Windows Mixed Reality, thanks to recent SteamVR integration, it should work from the start, but this is unconfirmed.
Do i get Fallout 4 VR if i have the base game or the GOTY Version of it ?
Sadly, You Don’t get Fallout 4 VR if you own the base game, however even more controversially you don’t get the game EVEN if you have Fallout 4 GOTY, Infact it’s a Standalone game you have to pay 60$ for on Steam. You might think that Bethesda is getting away with something completely anti-consumer and you are completely correct.
Huh, What about the DLC’s From the Original game Does it include them ??
The description on the steam page is very vague with it reading,
“Fallout 4 VR includes the complete base game will all-new combat, crafting, and building systems fully re-imagined for virtual reality”
The “base game” mention seems to indicate that VR will not see the DLC content, but in the Fallout 4 VR trailer, there’s a quick shot of the Pip-Boy with the “Vault-Tec Calling” quest that is only found in the “Vault-Tec Workshop” DLC.
However Bethesda’s tweet on the question is even more vague “Fallout 4 VR will include all content from the base game – including hundreds of locations, characters and quests – and will be available on the HTC Vive on December 12, 2017”.
But can i use mods like in the base game ?
Sadly no, as Bethesda has stated that the controversial Creation Club will not be made available for Fallout 4 VR (nor is it available for Skyrim VR as it’s a PSVR only title ).
In another forum thread, it’s also stated that there will be no official support for community-made mods, but that doesn’t mean that modders will not be able to mod a game, They are called modders after all. Keep in mind here that VR performance is a touchy thing, and with Bethesda’s completely trash tier Creation engine, implementing mods might be a lot trickier here than with a regular PC game (but it will still be easier than getting Skyrim to run at a solid FPS with more than one City Overhaul Mod) .
