Big news today for VR gamers! Skyrim VR is coming to PC VR headsets (that means Rift, Vive, and Windows headsets) on April 3rd. The PC VR version of the game should be a dramatic upgrade over its PSVR counterpart with improved visual fidelity, dramatically improved controls with Oculus Touch, the Vive wands, and Windows VR controllers, as well as the ability to fully move around the environment in room scale.
The big question remaining that wasn’t answered in the Bethesda blog post announcement though is whether or not it will have mod support on PC. At least for now, that answer is (as expected) no.
According to a Bethesda representative via email, there is:
“No planned mod support at this time, [because] the team’s focus is on making the core experience of Skyrim VR feel and look great.”
This messaging is in-line with what they said about the PSVR version’s launch last year.
However, all that being said, we’re still holding out hope for mod support at a future date at least for the PC iteration. Modding has always been a staple of Bethesda’s games, especially The Elder Scrolls series, so it’d feel odd to play an Elder Scrolls game on PC that didn’t include mod support at least eventually.
