It started in 2016 without having a single PC-powered consumer-grade VR gaming headset on the market. After a few months, gamers were introduced to a variety of new games in a brand new arena when the Rift and the Vive were released. Today, one of the largest franchises in the whole game industry who also happens to be one of the biggest game studios in the world has made it’s great leap to VR with Fallout 4 from Bethesda.

Bethesda hosted its second annual presentation at a Sunday night in Los Angeles, CA, as their way of placing their company in the forefront of the industry and the world. The presentation highlighted the new content for the existing games like DOOM and The Elder Scrolls Online and the new footages of the newest Quake and Dishonored titles. The audience in LA was completely surprised when Bethesda announced that DOOM and Fallout 4 were making VR experiences.
The most interesting part of Bethesda section is that both DOOM and Fallout 4 were running in VR using the HTC Vive. Based on the documentation provided and as for the experiences, DOOM gives far more than as an actual fully developed game but rather is a lot of technology demonstration of sorts for the recent emphasis of the id engine.
Fallout 4 Facts
