Bethesda had some big VR news in store for its E3 press conference yesterday. First up, we got our first look at Doom VFR for the HTC Vive and PlayStation VR (PSVR), then we got a release window for Fallout 4 on Vive. But how much will each game cost? Steam has the answer.
Doom VFR will be coming to PC in Q4 2017 for $29.99, Valve’s digital storefront reveals. The game promises an all-new campaign in which players take control of a survivor of the events of the 2016 reboot, fighting their way through a facility on Mars that’s flooded with demons. We’re not yet sure if the game will be coming to PSVR at the same time, though it is listed on the PS Store with the same price and a likely placeholder date in December. Maybe we’ll find out at tonight’s PlayStation press conference?
Fallout 4 VR, meanwhile, has the larger price of $59.99. The game translates the entirety of the 2015 original into VR for the first time with position-tracked controls to boot. Steam again lists a Q4 releases window, but we know this one’s actually coming in October of this year. It looks amazing, which is why we’re not surprised to see the higher price point, though we would like to know if existing Fallout 4 owners will be getting any kind of discount on the game.
Either way, Bethesda has the VR line-up to beat at E3 this year, and we can’t wait to get our hands on both of these games at the show. Both games can now be pre-purchased on Steam for the super keen. It doesn’t look like either is officially coming to the Oculus Rift, which isn’t too surprise seeing as Bethesda’s parent company, Zenimax Media, recently sued Oculus to the tune of $500 million.
