Going multiple hours on a game such as Fallout 4 is not a hard thing to pull off. In fact, getting into the wastelands and staying there for the action is one of the most addictive things a core gamer could ever come about. However, for a game released in November 2015, fans are surely going to get bored at one point in time. That is why there was the announcement of the Fallout VR, and now, the realisation of it.
Supposed to have launched in the month of October this year, the Fallout 4 VR release was pushed until the 12th of December so as to get everything perfected before the final release. From what we have been seeing around, that is now the case.
What does the Fallout VR bring?
If you have been playing the game on consoles before this time, expect to get the same thing. Well, the same thing, save for the new real-world, perfectly immersive and 360-degree experience that the VR option brings with it.
The VR option of the game has been designed with the full campaign present on consoles in mind, so you don’t miss a step.
For travels, you can choose to teleport (which would use up your Action points). Like the transport fare system, the amount of action points to be used is dependent on the distance of the location you are to travel to. Otherwise, you can just move manually by using the hand controls.
How Much is Fallout 4 VR?
Depending on the location of purchase, the Fallout 4 VR will cost the user in the region of £36. The game itself sells for slightly more, coming in at £39. However, you can just grab the disc and load it yourself for a lower price of £34.
How can I play the Fallout 4 VR?
Fallout 4 VR has been optimised for HTC’s Vive VR headset. If you happen to have the headset beforehand, check to confirm if the game has been loaded – of which it should have.
Unfortunately, the game is not available for those with the PlayStation VR. We hope this will be reversed in the future and everyone will have access to it.
Also, you can pick up the game on the Steam Engine. Some Steam users have been reporting cases of blurry images, but that does not seem to be a general issue. The Fallout 4 VR title is sold differently from the original title on Steam, going for a retail price of $59.95
