Skyrim VR reimagines the complete epic fantasy masterpiece with an unparalleled sense of scale, depth, and immersion. From battling ancient dragons to exploring rugged mountains and more, Skyrim VR brings to life a complete open world for you to experience any way you choose. Skyrim VR includes the critically-acclaimed core game and official add-ons – Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.

I hope they will issue an update for the original PS4 edition rather than make us buy it again.

Guess I'm buying the PS4 version as well then.

Hopefully this means Fallout 4 is coming to PSVR as well quite soon.

Hmm...I would actually think this means the opposite.

Its too hard to get Fallout 4 up and running at the required framerate for VR on PS4, so have Skyrim instead.

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

I hope it supports mods so I can be a big titty catwoman and see myself getting railed by a transexual orc/dragonkin hybrid in first person.

If not it is an outrage.

Sounds interesting apart from '....teleportation movement'

I have a feeling they'll also include a control scheme with the pad where you can move freely but they may have shown this method so that people playing the demo didn't get motion sick.

You might be right as I'm sure the trailer had freedom of movement, not teleportation like the Doom one.

This post on reddit maybe confirms free movement.

The VR version is up for pre-order on the store - £49.99. I'm guessing we won't be seeing a VR DLC (akin to Dirt), looks like this is a standalone product.

Boo to that.

I refuse to believe it's not something they could sell as DLC and patch in. Money grabbing bastards. :evil:

No chance I'm paying £50 for it. I'll be waiting for sub-£20.

PSVR stuff doesn't really seem to drop in price a great deal, even something like Eve Valkyrie still commands a fairly high price at retail (£25 on Amazon). Best option might be to keep an eye on HotUKdeals but I'd expect it to cost you at least £35 in the first year.

EDIT: Shopto have got it at £40.
